Home Composed Song Contest 30th Anniversary Celebration Show: The Home Composed Song Contest (HCSC) is an annual online competition for non-professional songwriters who are also fans of the Eurovision Song Contest.
First held in 1991, the aim of HCSC is simple: to give fans who write their own songs the opportunity to take part in a Eurovision-style contest. Their compositions go head-to-head in a friendly competition, culminating in an exciting voting presentation. The competitors also form juries who, along with the public and invited judges, decide the eventual winner of the competition.
Over the years, 33 different countries have been represented in the competition, from Portugal to Russia and most points in between. As the contest approaches its thirtieth edition, it is believed to be the longest-running pan-European song contest other than Eurovision itself!
Stefan Engel is organising the 30th Anniversary show that can be followed on YouTube and already this week on Radio International the second hour is devoted to celebrate the 30th Anniversary as Stefan Engel is joining JP to take a look back at the highlights of the Home Composed Song Contest.
