I'm in the middle of making my first few videos, I may not enter this year, but I'm stoked about going to AWA and seeing all the contests!

Quu (the technical director) is presently working hard to get a revamped submission system up and running.

I'll be keeping an eye out on this for everyone here, so check back here and on the AWA forum VAT section for updates. :)

This is what I posted on the AWA forums after talking with Quu(Patrick) about what will change in the cliff notes. Please note that this is just what he presented to me at that time, so it may (and probably will) be modified or appended in the final version.
Other than the due dates (see main contest page for those dates), changes will also include the address to send discs, the site to register videos, and information about the Masters contest.

The new registration site will be at http://contest.otakuvideo.com once it is up and running. The Masters contest rules will more than likely be the same as previous years when Masters was running. The new address to physically send videos is:

Patrick Bohnet
C/O : AWA Masters/Pro/Expo Contest
2955 Lula Lane
Kennesaw, GA 30144

the email addresses for both technical and general contest questions are still the same:

General Questions: videoart@awa-con.com
Technical Questions: vattechnical@awa-con.com

There also may be some technical changes to the traditional long form of the rules from previous years (e.g. resolutions that will be accepted) so keep an eye on the site for when those rules are posted.
This is a courtesy FYI. The official rules may be completely different.

Everyone,

The rules have been posted to the Anime Weekend Atlanta web site. I have made an effort to update, consolidate and simplify things, and in consideration of the considerable delay in getting the official rules posted, I have moved the Professional Awards deadline by two weeks. It is now August 8, 2011.

If you find any errors, omissions, or problems with the rules as posted, you may email me directly at videoart@awa-con.com.

VAT Technical has been spending this time re-writing the video submission website, and it will be going live shortly. He's informed me that everyone will need to re-register with the web site this year, that unfortunately he was unable to preserve account and login information. I will post again when it is available.

I want to thank everyone for your patience, and your support of The Video Art Track and Anime Weekend Atlanta.

Yours truly,
-Daric "Jingoro" Jackson
Video Art Track Director

Daric, what ever happened to sending out previous awards? Are you still going to do that or can I have someone pick up mine at AWA for me?

It is always best to pick up your awards in person, or to designate someone to do so for you (let me know in advance, videoart@awa-con.com).

Those who I've exchanged emails with, you are not forgotten. I am sorry, but the present and the future are demanding enough of my time that the past is suffering. Again, I appreciate your patience.

As a side note, I've seriously considered ending all physical prizes (trophies, certificates... wouldn't stop the Master's Jacket unless I also stop The Masters, but we did clarify in the rules the editor is expected to be present should they win), because of my demonstrated inability to ship them out on anything resembling a reasonable schedule. Thoughts on the matter are welcome, at the same address. (videoart@awa-con.com).

No problem, just curious if anything had happened. The physical awards are nice to have, so please don't get rid of them. I'm fine with you not shipping them out, just allow us to have proxies to pick them up for those of us who can't attend :P

Yeah, I can pick up everyone's awards.


Incidentally, I'll be holding an unrelated raffle for various AMV awards and certificates, buy your tickets now!
