From the official ALA website http://www.animelosangeles.org/wp/2011/amv-contest-3/

The AMV (Anime Music Video) contest takes place on Friday. Anime Music Videos consist of clips from one or more anime series or movies set to songs. They are made by fans because they have a passion for an anime/song combination that drives them to show that vision to audiences.

All of our contestants are fans just like you who have worked hard all year to create the videos we will be showing off Friday evening. There are many
awards that can be won.

Judging Categories: (Voted on by our panel of Judges)

Hope to see you there!


There have been a few changes to the rules so please check them out before submitting to be sure your video qualifies.

We now accept videos all the way up to December 31st at midnight! This is an "in my hands" date, not a mail by date.

That means we will be accepting entries up to December 31st. I have streamlined the pre-judging and contest-creation times such that I only need a few days to finalize the contest.

However, if we receive enough quality entries to fill up the contest before the 31st, we may decide to finalize the contest at that point.

There are two steps to entry submission:
1. You have filled out the submission form
2. I have received the entry.

I would recommend completing both steps by December 10th. Completing just the first is normally enough to reserve your space. It really depends on how much time I have to work on the contest pre-convention. I know it will take me at least 4 days.

In the contest rules, section 3.2.a E-mail a link to your video file to AMV12@alaamv.info
If you really need help we may be able to set up an FTP or other upload page. Its going to be slow and require a constant QUALITY internet connection for the entire upload.

The main ALA AMV site is www.alaamv.info
I don't control what is posted to the main site. The ALA webmaster has been sent the content to post it, and it should be on the main ALA site soon. But everyone should go to the AMV site for their info as it is most frequently updated.

Would it be a problem if I sent one entry in now and another entry later? I just want to make sure that's not a problem because I have one entry ready now and one that's not finished yet.
