"AX's own music dual"??

So not only can they not spell "duel", but apparently they don't actually know what goes on at AMV Chef...?

At first read it looked like a solicitation for a music sponsor and I was about to go all Hulk Smash on certain people, but after reading a bit more carefully, there's nothing hugely wrong, aside from the mis-spell.

It should say "editing duel" rather than "music duel". I'll write to Susan and suggest a correction.

Working on that. I have ideas in mind, but I need to see if it's budget friendly.

Let me turn that question around though: What kind of prizes would you like to see? :)

Cash, ofcourse! I bought my new PC with previous year's contest prize, and Right now I'm finalizing hell'of'a AMV on it. If it was on my previous pc, it will be real pain in the a@ss to render.

It won't be cash this year, sorry. Buuuuuut...

I'd like the prizes to be practical yet awesome though, such as equipment, and as well as stuff that's special and hard to get, such as some unique yet cool R2 blu-rays that are hard to find. I've also heard suggestions about crafting a unique trophy.

Bottom line, I don't want to just give out random swag. I want the prize to be something that'd be appreciated, yet on par with (or at least a cut above) what other conventions do.

A unique or cool looking trophy or something is far better then prizes in my opinion

I still think the director's chair prize that we used to give out way back in the day was the coolest AMV prize of them all, quite frankly. If I understand correctly though, it went away because shipping them to the winner was a bit of an issue. They weren't the kind of things a winner could just shove in their suitcase. :P

Considering their ever shrinking dvd department (especially anime), I'd have to disagree about Best Buy.

Hard drives are always useful. How about autographed hard drives?
