Contest overview

In 2021, Stefan Engel organised a special edition to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Home Composed Song Contest.

All former HCSC participants who reached a top three position in one of the annual editions during the last 30 years were invited to take part in this anniversary contest with their original entries, the aim being to determine the HCSC community's favourite entry of all time.

The event had its own website, and an extensive video show - which you can still watch here - was produced to announce the results. The votes of the 22 participating entrants were supplemented by an online public vote as well as four guest jurors: HCSC stalwart Martin Kahnberg, regular supporters Radio International, ESC expert Irving Wolther a.k.a. "Dr. Eurovision", and Eurovision royalty in the shape of 1973 winner Anne-Marie David.

In the end, the public vote was needed to break the deadlock at the top of the scoreboard after the juries had had their say, and the overall winner was "Waiting Til May" by Eduard and Alex Alexogiannopoulos from Greece - the song that originally triumphed in the 2013 edition of HCSC. Congratulations to them, and thanks to Stefan for organising a fine anniversary celebration!
