Dear participants, Dear Song Contest fans,

The time has come, the members of the main jury have sat intently and now the winners of the current round of the Song Contest “Dein Song für EINE WELT!” (Your song for ONE WORLD) have been chosen! Picking the album rankings, the five finalists and the special prizes has been no easy task for the main jury given the quality and broad range of ideas touched upon by the entries.

Colombia Caritas (Kolumbien Caritas aus Facatativá) from Colombia secured the Latin America special prize with song “Caminos de Esperanza (Die Hoffnungswege)”. A special video prize was also awarded: This went to Ants In Pants for entry “Hey, steht auf”.

With the jury's decision, the 23 songs on the ONE WORLD album have now been decided, as have the five finalists who will compete for the main prizes and the title of the EINE WELT song on December 4, 2019. Qualified for the final are Alina feat. Mika from Windorf with the song „Mutter Erde“, Byrd & Ward from Blieskastel with „Molotov zum Blumenstrauß“, Die Totenköpfe from Berlin with „Kinder dieser Welt!“, Jamilah und Hadaya from Cologne with „Mein Körper gehört mir“ and Volcanic King ZW from Waterfalls (Simbabwe) with the song „Kuchema Kwedu“.
