The host country of the Junior Eurovision chooses its own symbols - a logo and a memorable slogan - which should become a hallmark of the forum. Typically, a graphically designed logo consists of an individual show symbol and a text common to all countries, written in the original Junior Eurovision font.

The logo of the Junior Eurovision-2018 is a rising star, presented in the form of inverted sound waves in the stylistics of the Belarusian national ornament. The author of the work is designer and devoted fan of the Eurovision Song Contest Maxim Bukas. The Star symbol (and the slogan Light Up!), according to the European Broadcasting Union, was the best one among more than 300 works received during the creative contest of ideas for the development of the logo and slogan of the current children's song contest.

According to the designer himself, the inspiration for him was Star Venus by Maxim Bogdanovich, a modern young European poet in Belarusian literature. Young participants of the contest will come to Belarus to make a name and start their own creative path as a bright star. The slogan Light Up! will also be in harmony with the logo!

Soon the symbols of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest-2018 will appear on souvenirs, transport and billboards in the Belarusian capital.

The stage design, the layout of the main concert platform, the design of all accompanying premises, where delegations, volunteers, the press center will be located, will be prepared on the basis of the logo. Symbols of Junior Eurovision Song Contest-2018 will be used for active promotion of the contest in Belarus and abroad.

International Junior Eurovision Song Contest-2018 will be held on November 25. The rising stars will be lit up at the sports complex Minsk-Arena, which already hosted the song forum in 2010 and meets all the requirements for holding and filming the television project.

The places of residence of the delegations and the place for hosting the opening ceremony have also been finally approved. The participants will be accommodated in the five-star hotel complex President-Hotel, and the grand opening of the forum will be organized in the BelExpo exhibition center.

In the meantime, Belteleradiocompany continues preparations for the contest. A social program for participants is being developed in the media holding. In the near future the casting of the hosts and volunteers will be held.

On March 27, one of the EBU technical directors who has repeatedly worked at the adult Eurovision will arrive in Minsk. Together with the broadcaster's team, he will visit Minsk Arena in order to work out the concept of the music holiday more thoroughly.
