A total of 27 entries are taking part in this year’s edition of the long-running competition for Eurovision fans who also write songs for fun.
You can read the profiles and lyrics and listen to the songs via the 2023 Entries page or by selecting them from the drop-down menu.
And when you’ve done that, make sure you vote in our public poll! It’s open until Sunday 22 October and you can come back and vote again after 24 hours have passed – so you can keep supporting your favourites all the way to the deadline.
Spread the word, share the music – and enjoy the contest!
HCSC is the friendly competition for Eurovision fans who write their own songs for fun, and this is the 32nd annual edition.
The 2023 event will be organised by Eoin Jackson from Ireland with the participation of last year’s winner, Gunnar B. Ingebrigtsen from Norway, and technical support from Martin Faulkner of the HCSC Organising Committee.
Appropriately, the logo for HCSC 2023 incorporates the blue and white colours of the flags of Waterford and Lillehammer, the home cities of Eoin and Gunnar.
If you want to chat with the organisers and the other competitors, we highly recommend joining the HCSC Facebook group.
The deadline for entries to be submitted is 30 September 2023, voting will take place in October, and the final results show will be revealed on YouTube on 11 November 2023.
In the meantime, happy composing and recording – and we greatly look forward to hearing from you!
