Contest overview

The 2002 Home Composed Song Contest was held in Germany and was jointly organised by Achim Wurm from Kronberg im Taunus and Matthias Pohl from Berlin.

A number of records were smashed this year. There was a record number of entrants, with 24 participating composers and a total of 36 songs - over 50% more than ever before! The competition also welcomed entries from France, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Turkey and Finland for the very first time - a sign that Home Composed was finally expanding to become a truly European competition.

Because of the large number of songs, the organisers chose to introduce a new scoring system for this year's contest. Each of the participant juries voted for 22 songs in total, giving points from 1 to 20, then 25, then 30 to their favourite song. Meanwhile, the guest jurors (shown as Gj1.png to Gj10.png in the scoresheet) voted in the traditional 12-10-8... ESC format, in order to give a greater weighting to the votes of the actual participants. The guest jurors comprised some former participants as well as OGAE members from various countries.

Needless to say, this all meant the points scores in the 2002 contest were rather larger than usual - 545 for the winner, for example! At the same time, it made it likely that nobody would end up with no points, as a glance at the bottom end of the table shows.

And after the long voting process was over, congratulations were due to Sascha Mutavdzic - his first time participating in the contest, the first ever entries from Bosnia and Herzegovina, and he almost completed a clean sweep of the top two placings. The only thing stopping him was Deo Grech's Maltese entry "Bandido - The Spanish Thief", which split the two Bosnian songs and finished second. But in the end, "History" by Sasha was the clear winner.
