Of course it would.
I lost time to do the research I typically do.
Apparently there are two that were made known to me recently.
The problem is this site hasn't updated their index of contest results to reflect any cons for 2012.
That's what I use to see who has won what and how many times.
Otherwise, it's near impossible to track until the 'org updates its directory because some cons don't post their results here.
Anyway, I apologize for any inconvenience this might have caused.
And yes it's apparent there are those who assume all contest rule sets are the same because I still get entries with sownloaded anime, watermarks, credits, and incorrect encoding.
I've even had one would-be entrant commit plagiarism by turning in several instances of other people's YouTube videos.
Obvious grounds for disqualification.
Anyway, I'll speak to whomever I have to about getting a-m-v.org to be more diligent about updating their contest results directory so this kind of research can be done...
