Contest overview

The 2005 Home Composed Song Contest was organised by Martin Faulkner from the United Kingdom, who was living in Hamburg, Germany at the time.

Sascha Mutavdzic from Bosnia and Herzegovina returned with two songs including the entry he had withdrawn the previous year, but Lobo from Spain opted to withdraw his 2005 entry shortly after the submission deadline had passed. As a result, the contest scoreboard featured a total of 23 entries from 14 participating composers.

Peter Reinders from the Netherlands and Felix Krückau from Germany both returned to the fray after a year off, while there were debuts in the contest for Greece and Austria in the shape of Dimitris Kiklis and Karl Gartler's band MikeWail respectively. Due to other commitments, however, reigning champion Morten Boldt was unable to defend his title.

The plan to include a guest jury consisting of former participants (as set out in the rules) was abandoned when only one set of votes was submitted. Fortunately, those votes would not have changed the final outcome of the contest, so the points were ultimately given by the 14 participating juries alone. This didn't stop it from being one of the closest and most exciting voting procedures in Home Composed history to date: the commanding lead enjoyed by MikeWail's entries in the early stages gradually evaporated, and in a neck-and-neck race for the finishing line, Dimitris Kiklis and his song "Apopse" - sung by his sister Emilia - eventually triumphed by six points.

The winning score of 80 was relatively low, and "Apopse" received no 12-point awards at all - a consensual winner in a year of polarisation among the juries. This was also underlined by the fact that just four points separated 4th place from 8th, while three songs unfortunately received no points at all. Congratulations were due to returnee Peter Reinders for achieving his best result in some time, as well as Felix Krückau and Matthias Pohl for their best-ever performances. In the end, though, it proved to be the year of the debutant, with Austria and Greece dominating the top three.
