    1.    The Contest Final, produced in accordance with the applicable Eurovision rules (especially as regards advertising and sponsorship), shall be transmitted in its entirety as a live continuous programme over the Eurovision network on 24 May 2003 from 19.00 GMT to approximately 22.00 GMT, unless emergency procedures interrupt the programme, in which case the producing organization may broadcast the dress rehearsal.

    2.    There will be three opportunities for commercial breaks during the programme: one during the presentation of the songs, one before the announcement of the voting, and one during the announcement of the voting.

    3.    The participant’s commentators shall respect the fairness of the competition, and should refrain from talking during the performance of the songs.

    4.    The producing organization shall transmit the EBU  logo before and after the programme and each participant shall relay it.

    5.    All participants shall broadcast the Contest Final live on their national programme service. They are also entitled to broadcast the Contest Final simultaneously on their 100%-owned digital or satellite channels without editorial changes (i.e. including commentary, televoting information, etc.).

    6.    The same shall apply to candidates for participation the following year, except that if for imperative scheduling reasons a live broadcast should not be possible a deferred broadcast shall be carried out within 24 hours.

    7.    During a period of  30 calendar days following the date of the Contest Final, all participants, as well as candidates for 2004, shall be entitled to repeat the broadcast wholly or in part, an unlimited number of times, on their terrestrial channels or on 100%-owned digital or satellite channels.

    8.    Subject to prior authorization by the Permanent Services, the Contest Final may also be broadcast live or by deferred relay by EBU active Members in other countries. Deferred transmissions must take place within 30 calendar days of the date of the Contest Final.
