Every year Eurostory gives out the Eurostory Best Lyrics Award – an award for the most outstanding song lyrics from this year’s Eurovision-entry’s. Which song contains the best metaphors, the strongest written lines or the most poetic images?

The winner is chosen by

  • a large international jury of published writers, poets, artists and songwriters (3/4)
  • readers of www.eurostory.nl (1/4)

out of a shortlist,
compiled by a small committee of poets that publish in the Dutch language.

The winner of the award is announced during the Eurovision week.

HISTORY:

Until 2019 the award was given to the best line from a Eurovision song.
