In 1994, 1995, 1996, and 1997, Alimanović was involved in both arranging (or at least co-arranging) and conducting the Bosnian entries ‘Ostani kraj mene’ (sung by Alma & Dejan), ‘Dvadaset i prvi vijek’ (by Davor Popović), ‘Za našu ljubav’ (by Amila Glamočak), and ‘Goodbye’ (by Alma Čardzić). He was co-composer of all songs except the 1994 entry.
