What is HCSC?

The Home Composed Song Contest (HCSC) is an annual online competition for amateur songwriters and musicians who are also fans of the Eurovision Song Contest.

First held in 1991, the aim of HCSC is simple: to give fans who write their own songs the opportunity to take part in a Eurovision-style contest. Their compositions go head-to-head in a friendly competition, culminating in an exciting voting presentation.

This website is the home of the 2018 edition of HCSC, which is being hosted by last year’s winner, Eduard Alexogiannopoulos from Greece, together with the members of the Home Composed organising committee. You can find details of the Rules and how to enter the competition by following the links in the menu bar above.

And if you need a little inspiration, check out the video of last year’s winning song, “Need To Know”!
