Eye Cue from Macedonia, winner of the 2018 Barbara Dex Award

The Barbara Dex Award is an annual fan award given out to the worst-dressed artist of that year's Eurovision Song Contest.  It was named after Barbara Dex, who competed for Belgium at the Eurovision Song Contest 1993 wearing a rather unflattering handmade dress.

Many of these were victims of the Curse of Green.

Serbia and Macedonia currently holds the record for the most Barbara Dex Awards won with 2.

House of Eurovision, the Dutch fan site that founded the award in 1997, announced after the 2016 contest that they would close their site [1]. Belgian fan site announced soon after that they would take over the handing out of the award from 2017 on [2].
