OGAE Song Contest 2023: Aussievision team rankings
It is that time of the year again where we will soon find out who will be voted the winner of the OGAE Song Contest 2023.
The OGAE Song Contest sees national clubs enter an original song from their nation released in the previous 12 months and sung in one of the country's official languages.
For those not familiar, the OGAE International Network (French: Organisation Générale des Amateurs de l'Eurovision, English: General Organization of Eurovision Fans) is the network of official Eurovision fan clubs.
As with the Eurovision Song Contest, participating countries cannot vote for their own song.
There are 31 songs competing in this year's OGAE Song Contest, with voting to conclude on October 21. This year’s competition will be hosted by OGAE Australia following their 2021 win with 'Fly Away' by Tones and I.
Before the results of the actual Contest are revealed, the Aussievision team has ranked their favourites, aside from Australia's own entry 'Padam Padam' by Kylie Minogue.
