The Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2019 is set to be produced by an entirely Polish team, marking a change to the contest for the first time since 2014.
The 2019 Junior Eurovision Song Contest is set to be the first contest in a number of years to have featured no assistance from individuals outside of the host country. TVP has been working on organising the competition since January.
The only foreign involvement in the competition this year will come from Digame, who supervise the voting at the competition. Last year in Minsk, the competition was organised by the national broadcaster BTRC, but used Gordon Bonello as the Director of the contest. Gordon Bonello had been the Director at the contest since 2014, having previously worked on the 2014 contest for PBS in Malta.
During the course of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest a variety of broadcasters have assisted host nations with holding the competition. SVT of Sweden assisted technically with the broadcasts in 2010 and 2011, providing HD equipment to each of the host broadcasters, as well as technical assistance.
