The Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2014 was the 12th annual Junior Eurovision Song Contest, and took place, for the first time, in Malta. This was the third time that the contest was hosted by the previous year's winning country. Maltese national broadcaster PBS was the host broadcaster for the event. The final took place on 15 November 2014 and was in the Malta Shipbuilding in Marsa, near Valletta. Moira Delia, a Maltese television personality, hosted the show, marking the first time in Junior Eurovision history that there was only one presenter of the show. A total of sixteen countries participated, with Italy, Montenegro and Slovenia making their débuts. The winner of the contest was Vincenzo Cantiello, who represented Italy with the song "Tu primo grande amore". Bulgaria and Armenia finished in second and third place, respectively. This was Italy's first victory in a Eurovision competition since the last edition of Jeux Sans Frontières in 1999, and also marked the first time since the inaugural 2003 contest that a country had won in its débutante year.
LocationOn 18 December 2013, the Maltese national broadcaster Public Broadcasting Services (PBS) and the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) announced that the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2014 would take place in Malta. During the winner's press conference, representatives of the Maltese broadcaster showed their desire to host the event, following the Maltese victory at the 2013 contest.

The middle shed would be the main audience area and stage, while the two side sheds would be used as audience entrances and exits, restrooms, and refreshment stalls. In total, there was capacity for 4,000–4,500 people inside the buildings.
Graphic designOn 9 May 2014, Anton Attard, CEO of the host broadcaster, revealed the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2014 logo and slogan. The slogan was "#together", while the logo was inspired by the Maltese cross. Each of its coloured segments represented a feature of Malta: Sand, Sea, Stone, Grass, Sky, Dusk and Sunset. The postcards included a theme of "extreme sports", and were partially filmed at the SmartCity Malta complex. The stage design was presented during the Heads of Delegations meeting held on 30 September 2014. Gio'Forma, a Milan-based design company, was given the task of designing the stage for the 2014 contest.
