Please keep it at a reasonable limit is requested (less than 5). Also, newer AMVs will take higher precedence.

Just a bump reminder with about 2 months to go. At a half-dozen entries so far. Makes it easier for those that entered to win the money.

You're hard limit is a bit strict with my video since it runs shy of an extra 20 seconds. Can you possibly make an exception?
Spoiler :
I assure you that it is a awesome video. :D

A buffer of going over by up to 30 seconds will be given but it must be knock the sock off of the SJ staff when we review them as we will be more critical of your entry.

Reminder: please read the rules first before submitting as you do click on a box saying that you did read the rules. A couple submissions have come in that were DQ'd for not following the rules about credits.
