Note that I copied and pasted the first one from the VCA forums since that forum is going to get removed once the contest is over. But anywho.....
I have NEVER seen such a touching and emotional video of Full Moon wo Sagashite, and this video actually made a serious impact in my heart. Plus Queen is awesome especially when they did the soundtrack for Highlander!
One of my all-time favorite drama video because of it's simplicity. That simplicity was able to exceptionally convey the relationship between Mikako and Noboru and how depressing it is to be seperated.
I absolutely adore this video - most of the effects are rather simple, but the message that's conveyed is very touching and depressing at the same time. The quality of the video is excellent considering it was made with fansubs, and although it isn't really "action-synched", it follows the lyrics perfectly. As stated in the video description: "This isn't a fast paced fast cute video it's more typical in nature but with an artistic side to it."
Let's just say that the first time I saw this on the big screen at a con, I couldn't keep my jaw off the floor and I had to constantly prevent myself from crying. Typing this up, I have just now erased what I was going to say at least three times. I realized that I can't summarize how great this is in mere words.
I absolutely love the vid "Sick, Mad World" by Roccket. It uses a rarely seen anime called Paranoia Agent and is a really creepy video which reeks of everything sad - depression, madness, frustration with the world. . . definately worth checking out.
Also, AustinWang's Dance of the Spirits is an excellent and unique take on FFX, focusing on the pyreflies and the themes of death in the game as opposed to the general Tidus/Yuna relationship story. It uses the main theme from the movie Gladiator (Now We Are Free) as its backdrop, which gives it an awesome feel.

This is an awesome Wolf's Rain video by a Russian AMV creator. I just recently came across this AMV and I was instantly amazed by the creative way the editor manipulated the storyline and used effects to create a powerful drama vid. By far one of the best Wolf's Rain vids I've seen.
a beautiful but relatively unknown evangelion video by Purelyshin. truly moving.
"This was probably the best AMV that I've had ever seen, as that not only did the video clips match and anticipate the sequences of the music, but the overall concept is just mind blowing. Though as much tired as I am of Evangelion music videos, I feel this stands out the best of them all."
This video is an amazing work that evokes emotions every time one watches it. The song selection is great, the and wonderful editing and effects are some of the best out there. This powerful AMV is about different characters' feelings of loss over someone they care about. Definitely a masterpiece.
