OGAE Video Contest

The OGAE Video Contest is an annual video event that is organised among the OGAE national clubs.

All national clubs can enter with a music video released in the actual or the previous year in their own country for the original song. Free language rule applies to this contest.

Each year the contest is hosted by the previous year’s winner. Hosting the contest involves coordinating the event and its voting, and publishing the results.

Seven countries have won the contest since it began in 2003. The most successful countries have been France and Russia, both of which have won three times. Table A (below) gives full details of all past contests.

The Rest of the World club began participating in 2005. The points won by our entrants are shown in Table B (below).
