I do have one question though (and this is a bit of a miscommunication on my part) but are we allowed to enter one video into more than one category? In the rules there it says 1 video/entrant, but I think I heard that its possible to submit, for example, a video into Romance and another video into Trailer/Parody?


It is 1 video per person. The only exception is if you submit a solo project, and also have a collaborative credit on a group video, it usually is allowed, provided that the group video's main contact doesn't have a solo project, and I don't see the same name suspiciously show up on 30 different "projects".

I'm also gonna enter this year for the first time, so let's do our best. :up:

I'll enter with either drama or action video, I'll see what will come out better :) (or which one I'll actually finish :awesome: )

"2) We ARE aware that Anime Next takes place on our deadline weekend, so videos that win their first major award at Anime Next, are exempt from the anti-trolling rule, as prohibiting those entries would go against the spirit of the rule."
Isn't Anime NEXT Deadline May 5th?
And Otakon June 10th?

The deadline for Anime NEXT isn't important; it's when Anime NEXT actually takes place, which is the weekend of the 10th, hence why a special rule is there for it.

Just making sure, if I enter Animenext and IF I win action,upbeat or whatever. That video can still take part of otakon right? I just want to be 100% sure.

Yes this is correct, provided you don't win anywhere else first.
