OGAE (French: Organisation Générale des Amateurs de l'Eurovision, English: General Organisation of Eurovision Fans) is one of the two major international fan club networks of the Eurovision Song Contest. It has branches in 37 European countries.
Although the Eurovision Song Contest started in 1956, OGAE began in 1984 in Finland. All countries that take part or have already taken part in the Eurovision Song Contest can have their own OGAE and most of them do, as does Lebanon. All other countries around the world are united under OGAE Rest of World, created in 2004.
Every year, the organisation puts together four non-profit competitions (Song Contest, Second Chance Contest, Video Contest and Home Composed Song Contest).
The purpose is to spread national popular music throughout the world and to exercise co-operation over the OGAE network of clubs, cooperation among the Eurovision Song Contest fans, promotion of the Eurovision Song Contest, and establishment of strong relations with national broadcasting companies.

Winners of voting 
Every year since 2007, OGAE has conducted a pre-Eurovision Contest poll in which every national club plus OGAE Rest of the World vote all entries, using the same scoring system of Eurovision Voting (the most voted songs on each club receive 1 to 8, and then 10 and 12 points, and countries can't vote for themselves). The winners of this poll are:
|Year||Country||Song||Performer||Place||Points||2nd Place||3rd Place|
|2007||Serbia||"Molitva" (Молитва)||Marija Šerifović||1st||268||Switzerland||Belarus|
