Contest overview

Following Patryk Smolarek's victory the previous year, the 2007 Home Composed Song Contest was organised by OGAE Poland, with vice-president Kris acting as coordinator.

This year saw a number of innovations. Firstly, the contest was conducted almost exclusively online, with OGAE Poland setting up a separate website for the competition. Reflecting this change in the state of the art, the voting period was also significantly shorter, with the submission deadline on 15 September and the results announced by the end of that month. Furthermore, the songs were placed online in the order that they were received, rather than all being made available after the deadline - hence the non-random running order in the list below.

The modernisation of the contest as a whole was accompanied by a significant shift in its centre of gravity as far as the participants were concerned: among the 28 songs from an impressive 11 countries, only Achim Wurm, Martin Faulkner, Annika Jansson and Matthias Pohl remained from the pre-2005 history of the competition. Meanwhile, Slovenia made its debut, Cyprus returned after a 13-year absence, and British group Vulnerable were joined by a second UK representative for the first time in a number of years as Andy Brook's londonvision project made its arrival.

In the end, there was a second victory for the country with the most entries in Home Composed history: Germany took the title with "Warrior Of Love", composed and performed by first-time entrants Stefan Engel, Randi Knobloch and Tato Gomez.
