That category is for those who have won 2 or more awards for their AMV already. These AMVs are considered "professional."

I don't see anywhere in the submission process to specify a category. Should I put it in the description?

I haven't heard anything (within the week since the deadline), so I'm assuming I didn't make it in, but I was just wondering if there was going to be a finalist list posted?
