The <a href="/members/amvvca/2005/qualify.php">list of qualified videos</a> for the 2005 AnimeMusicVideos.org Viewers Choice Awards is now available. There are an impressive number of qualified videos this year. Here's a comparison with previous VCA participations:
Code: Select all
YEAR Videos Increase Creators Increase
2002 1049 - 249 -
2003 1505 456 480 231
2004 2452 947 784 304
2005 4760 2308 1243 459
As you can see, this year's video participation is nearly that of all previous years combined! With the increased number of active members, this is definitely proving to be the biggest VCA yet!
The contest will still have the two rounds of nominations before the final vote since knocking the list down to 5 would mean cutting it down to nearly 1/1000th of the qualifying videos. That's too big of a crunch to be fair, IMHO. Nominations will still be the most important part of the VCA process since the final vote will be limited to those videos chosen.
First round nominations start tomorrow. You have lots of downloading to do...
