The Home Composed Song Contest (HCSC) is an annual online competition for non-professional songwriters 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.
Over the years, 35 different countries have been represented in the competition, from Portugal to Russia and most points in between. If you want to know more about the history of the Home Composed Song Contest, there is a full archive of previous entries and results here.
This website was used as the home of the 2018-2020 editions of HCSC. The 2022 event will have its own standalone website when it launches later this year, so stay tuned for that!
And while you’re here: take a listen to last year’s winning song, Take Me Away by CornEL:
We hope you will be inspired to enter the 2022 edition!
