I thought I should pop in to remind everyone that if you intend to enter the AnimeNEXT 2012 AMV Contest via online submission, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to request an FTP account by APRIL 29,
as we cannot guarantee FTP accounts past that date. (This has always been stated in the rules file, but I realized it was not mentioned in my original post.)
Of course, your entries do not actually have to be uploaded until May 5.
Also of course, if you are submitting by post, the above does not apply to you, and you just need to get your entry postmarked by May 5.
