ok everybody, the contest has officially closed. All the submissions have been downloaded, and all confirmations have been sent.
I really want to thank all of you that showed your support for the contest. I set a goal of 75 entries this year, but you guys completely passed that mark. All together, I received a total of 92 accepted entries. So once again, thank you everyone that submitted a video and or expressed interest in Seishun-Con's 2nd annual AMV contest. This is going to be the fiercest AMV event that I've ever had the pleasure of judging. I seriously have absolutely no clue who will make the finals. There are just so many awesome AMVs. Picking a winner for the Judges' choice award is gonna be tough
I expect to have all the videos judged by the end of next week (at the latest), and everyone that submitted a "confirmed/ accepted" video will receive a e-mail that lists the top 5 videos in each category. Those results will also be announced in this thread. The finalists will then be judged by Seishun-Con's attendees. The winners of the 5 categories will then be announced throughout the AMV contest (Friday, June 22 from 7-9pm) and simultaneously posted on my twitter account https://twitter.com/#!/kireblue
And thanks to the large number of entries that Seishun-Con received, I had no problem convincing the powers in charge of adding in additional AMV programing this year and a dedicated AMV room next year. Some of the additional AMV programing include 2 hours of AMV contest overflow, a 2 hour showcase of Project OrgEditor 2011-2012 AMVs, and various general AMV programing blocks throughout the entire convention.
