We love to hear from our members about your Eurovision experiences - how you became a fan, your favourite song, how you celebrate each year, your travels to the contest...
Our 'Members Corner' area houses all your contributions to this website. It can be in the form of a written story, a video, or perhaps a photo essay. It just needs to be original and by you.
All entries will also be publicized via our Facebook page to ensure fellow fans see your work.
As an incentive to send us your work, we will award the best /most liked contribution each month with a prize. This could be a CD or other memorabilia coming to us from our friends in the Eurovision world, or perhaps a free ticket to an upcoming club event we are organising near you.

OGAE Song Contest:
The OGAE Song Contest is designed to promote national music and singers from competing countries, and to give them wider exposure across member clubs.
The OGAE SC is an audio-based competition between songs nominated by member OGAE national clubs. It normally takes place over the July - Sep period, and each fanclub has the ability to select its own entry which will then compete against other clubs selections.
After the 2017 OGAE Song Contest, it was a surprise to us but a great honour with Dami Im and her song ‘Fighting for Love’, OGAE Australia has experienced our first taste of success. With this, comes the hosting rights for 2018. This contest is currently under way.
OGAE Video Contest:
The OGAE Video Contest is designed to promote national music and singers from competing countries, and to give them wider exposure across member clubs.
The OGAE VC is an audiovisual-based competition between video clips nominated by member OGAE national clubs. It normally takes place over the Aug - Oct period, and each fanclub has the ability to select its own entry which will then compete against other clubs selections.
In 2016, Australia selected the video "In My Blood" by The Veronicas as its entry.
OGAE Australia members are encouraged to participate in both the video selection and the overall voting, and a random participating member is then awarded a prize such as a giftcard.
