Mi-Voice empowers Eurovision fans
When the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Mi-Voice came to the rescue of its millions of fans around the world.
Mi-Voice offers fully managed and self-service multi-channel electoral services to membership-based organisations with the aim of facilitating greater engagement in democratic events whilst delivering tangible cost savings through the use of technology.
The Southampton Science Park company was selected to create a global voting system for Organisation Générale des Amateurs de l’Eurovision (OGAE) International, the largest Eurovision Song Contest fan network in the world. OGAE wanted to connect fans around the world who wanted to celebrate the artists who couldn’t compete in Rotterdam and have their say on which song should have won this year’s contest.
Mi-Voice developed a voting platform for the OGAE Eurovision Fan Contest. This enabled all interested parties to register, to easily access videos of the competing artists, and to cast their vote securely and quickly online. In a similar way to the real contest, votes from members of the public were combined with those from members of the national clubs to produce the overall result.
Anthony Cigé, Secretary, OGAE International said: “When looking for a partner for our OGAE Eurovision Fan Contest, Mi-Voice quickly appeared to be a fantastic partner to work with. They are responsive, fast, patient, professional and extremely enjoyable to collaborate with. This has been one of the most efficient and fruitful collaborations I have had the pleasure to participate in.”
