Introduced in the December of 2013, the Bezençon-Craig Yourovision Awards are accolades attributed to songs in December (the Autumn awards season), March (the Spring awards season), and August (the Summer awards season), recognising which entry in the Yourovision Song Contest is best in the following categories:

  • Best Video, for the song with the best or most creative music-video;
  • Most Original Song, for the song that most defies convention or otherwise 'breaks the mould';
  • Most Underrated Song, for the best song in the bottom two of the last three contests; and
  • Best Overall Song, for the best song in the top two of the last three contests.

Two candidate songs are selected from each contest, for each category, and one winner is selected from each. In addition to this, one candidate is awarded an 'Honourable Mention', meaning that they placed second in their respective category. The Summer awards season is the exception to this, as each category receives two candidates from four contests, instead of three, meaning that there are two 'Honourable Mentions', rather than one, indicating second and third place in each category.

Autumn 2013Edit

This awards season encompasses the first, second and third editions.

¹USA United States was originally nominated for 'Most Underrated Song' of the seventh edition, with Demi Lovato's "Neon Lights", which was disqualified and thus placed last by default, but the nomination was later revoked upon the decision to base the 'Most Underrated Song' award on final points total, rather than final position on the scoreboard. As a result, San Marino San Marino, who finished 17th, was nominated instead.
