It is time for the OGAE Song Contest 2023!


Every year, the OGAE fan clubs host a number of song competitions: The OGAE Second Chance Contest (a battle between songs that competed in national selections but weren't chosen by their countries) and the OGAE Song Contest!


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.


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.


This year’s contest will be hosted by OGAE Australia following their 2021 win with 'Fly Away' by Tones and I! The Tones and I win was Australia's second ever win in the OGAE Song Contest. The first time Australia won was in 2017 with ‘Fighting for Love’ by Dami Im.
