The 2004 Viewers Choice Awards

Postby Phade » Thu Jan 01, 2004 2:23 pm

Hey Everyone,

It’s that time of year again! Time to start up the 2004 AnimeMusicVideos.org Viewers Choice Awards!!

This year will have many improvements and changes from previous years, but the two big ones are video hosting and actual prizes! I would like to thank Ulead Software and AnimEigo for generously providing the prizes for this year’s contest.

There have been several rule changes for this coming awards, so please read them carefully. Some of the forms for submitting information corrections are still being worked out, but they should be done soon enough to not affect the timing of events.

The “VCA Shameless Promotions” forum has been opened up so that you can promote and discuss videos that you think are nomination-worthy. I’m sure you will like to promote your own videos, but please also take the time to try to point out videos by other creators that you think deserve recognition that might not be on the minds of everyone.

The first step will be category name nominations. The category nomination tool will be online this evening as well as other tools to follow soon.

Good luck to everyone and have fun!! ^_^

Phade, not that I doubt your judgement, but I think you should close the VCA Self-Promotion Forum until the categories are actually announced. Aside from the basics (action/drama/romance/comedy/etc), we have no idea what we should promote for, and lots of people are naming hypothetical categories (myself included) that may or may not exist by the time categories are announced.

So, when categories are announced, open things up again, but until then maybe we should all be patient and save the pimping for when the contest is about to begin?

Hey dokool,

People can still promote other peoples' and thier own videos as "cool" for the time being. It will take some time for people to download all "cool" videos as it is, so the more time given, the better. Shameless promotions will become more directed to official categories when they are finalized.

Hey All,

The category suggestion tool is ready and waiting. :-) You may want to look at last years categories for a hint on what may and may not be accepted as a category. Of course, just because it was rejected last year does not automatically mean the category will be rejected this year.

Good luck and have fun!! ^_^

Can we copy and paste some of the rules from last year? The descriptions on many of them were well thought and I doubt I could improve upon them...

Hey,

No, the rules for last year do not apply for this year. But everyone should please read the rules for this year carefully.

Hey Paulo,

There will be no "game music video" category, but anime-style game cut scene footage will be considered "anime" for the purposes of this contest. Therefore, those videos are eligable to participate in any of the approved categories.
