The 2021 Home Composed Song Contest is coming!

If you’re a fan of the Eurovision Song Contest and you write your own songs, why not enter the Home Composed Song Contest, which takes place this autumn, in its 30th anniversary year? It is open to musicians from across Europe, from those who make music at home in their bedroom to those who are aiming for a full time career in the music industry, though the contest isn’t open to  full time professionals – we encourage you to go for Eurovision itself!

The competition has a rich history – in fact we believe that it is the longest running pan-European song contest after Eurovision itself.

Musical Eurovision fans from across Europe compete with audio recordings of their own original songs, as well as forming the juries who will choose the winner, in true Eurovision style. The grand final will take place online on Saturday 23 October 2021.

A dedicated website at home-21.com will be launched in June, with full details of how to enter and all the rules, so get writing and recording your song ready for this year’s 30th competition.

The songs will be presented online between 1 August and 19 September followed by a voting period from 20 September to 10 October, so there will be plenty of opportunity to promote your song. Do consider joining the dedicated Home Composed Song Contest Facebook group where you can meet other contestants from this year as well as previous editions.

Best of luck to everyone around Europe – get writing and recording your entry for the Home Composed Song Contest – ‘Home 21’.

If you have any enquiries about this year’s contest please contact the organiser, Andy Brook at homecomposed21@gmail.com

And meanwhile, here is the winning song from 2020 (but don’t worry, you only enter with your audio recording, there’s no need to make a video)…
