Wien, Austria, May 19, 2015 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- As last year's winner, Conchita Wurst will also be in Vienna this year for the 60th Eurovision Song Contest. The #ESC2015 will take place from 19 - 23 May 2015 and many Conchita fans are already very much looking forward to the event with its motto "Building Bridges". Building bridges means showing others acceptance and respect - and no one embodies this attitude more authentically than Conchita.

As an internationally-known ambassador for tolerance, Conchita will be seen not only at the Eurovision Song Contest and on the 2015 Life Ball poster: her glamorous portrayal as Gustav Klimt"s Golden Adele by star photographer Ellen von Unwerth inspired Austrian Mint to create the gold-plated Conchita Life Ball Medal 2015.

Conchita medal is a shining souvenir

There is no doubt that Vienna will be particularly glamorous and exciting during the Life Ball and the Eurovision Song Contest. The sparkling medal is therefore an excellent souvenir. If you will not be in Vienna but would still like to secure your Conchita souvenir, you can order the Conchita medal from the Austrian Mint online: (

Sparkle and do good: with the purchase of a medal, Conchita fans also support the AIDS LIFE organisation in their fight against AIDS.
