Anime Evolution AMV Contest : Finalists and Winners

Postby purplepolecat » Thu Apr 11, 2013 12:13 pm

Vancouver's anime con is back to its usual summer slot, so it's time to start gathering AMVs!

Rules & Submission Form

Deadline is May 31.

There is a Freshness Rule: "Previously released videos (as shown publicly at conventions, clubs and contests or for download on the internet) must have been premiered after June 28, 2012 to qualify. However, videos that were submitted to Anime Evolution: Akimatsuri 2012 are not eligible for this contest."

There is no restriction on entering videos that have won prizes in other contests.

You may submit THREE entries, provided at least ONE of them is in the Comedy/Parody or Fun/Upbeat category. Otherwise, the limit is TWO.

As usual, there will be :bzz: actual tangible prizes :bzz2:, details of which will be posted later.

Updated with finalists

Our panel of judges has spoken, the finalists for each category can now be revealed. Congrats to those who made it, and thanks to everyone who entered.

Finally, whether you made the cut or not, remember to enter Animethon's AMV contest, deadline June 21.

So someone actually stole running a contest away from Vlad. That's impressive.

I didn't exactly steal it, so much as have it delegated to me. Vlad has minions everywhere, you know. :sorcerer:

3 weeks to deadline!

OK that's a pretty long time unless you're submitting by dial up.

Yes, I see that.. But your learning fast from me, as it will not be too long until you got 3 contests and 6 amv rooms yourself. Hope your chair for your computer is a real comfy one :P

We don't have an emote on these boards that expresses the sheer terror that needs to be expressed at that statement. :uhoh:

With two weeks to go until the deadline, we already have a decent number of entries for Action, Drama and Romance/Sentimental. Keep 'em coming.

However, we are a little light on Comedy/Parody and Fun/Upbeat. If you have any videos that would fit in these categories, or you have an idea for a video that you think you could bang out in 2 weeks, please enter them. You have an excellent chance of making the finals!

One week to go, we already have a lot of great entries, but still need more Comedy/Parody and Fun/Upbeat vids.

SO I am making a small change to the submission rules.

You may submit THREE entries, provided at least ONE of them is in the Comedy/Parody or Fun/Upbeat category.

The contest is now closed! The finalists will be posted here sometime in the next four weeks, depending on how the judge-wrangling goes.

I am also pleased to announce that we now have a Trailer category! There was a late influx of suitable entries, and since people love trailers I figured I'd put them all together.

Here are the stats for accepted entries:

Code: Select all
Action              14
Comedy/Parody       5
Drama               11
Fun/Upbeat          7
Romance/Sentimental 15
Trailer             5
