OGAE Video Contest
Genre Music
Location(s) Various cities
Years active 2003–present
Founded by OGAE

The OGAE Video Contest is a video event which, much like the OGAE Song Contest, is organised between branches of OGAE, the international fan club of the Eurovision Song Contest.

All OGAE national clubs can enter with an original song and video released in the previous 12 months in their countries. There is no obligation on the entry for the OGAE Video Contest to be sung in one of the country's official languages.


So far 39 countries have been represented at the contest at least once. These are listed here alongside the year in which they made their debut:
