The 2002 OGAE Second Chance Contest was the 17th OGAE Second Chance Contest, organised between members of international Eurovision Song Contest fan club OGAE to select the best song not to make it to the Eurovision Song Contest through their national finals. 18 songs competed in the contest, held in Stockholm in Sweden after OGAE Sweden's win the previous year with "Allt som jag ser" by Barbados.[1]

Five countries returned to the contest after missing the previous year - Austria, Belgium, Finland, Macedonia and Romania all returned as competing countries. However five other countries could not compete after being relegated from competing in the Eurovision Song Contest 2002 - Iceland, Republic of Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway and Portugal were all unable to compete. Two further countries, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Lithuania, were disqualified during the voting when their results were not received by the deadline.

The 18 competing entries were joined by seven guest juries in the voting for the winner, coming from France, Luxembourg, Ireland, Portugal, Netherlands, Norway and Turkey.[2]

At the end of the voting the winner was Spain's David Bisbal with "Corazon latino", beating Sweden's winner from 2001 Barbados in second place, and Israel's Sarit Hadad into third place.[2]
