We'd like to thank everyone who submitted a video into the contest, now begins the task of sorting through them and selecting the AMV's that will be able to fit into the 2 hour program.
Admittedly, there weren't as many submissions as our usual AMV Contests, I would assume the biggest thing would be getting over the fact that this contest is held at a Furry convention rather than a Anime convention. Also would be the fact that we re-vamped our rules to include "animation" which is not really a turn-off but rather un-tested and often overlooked.
We hope in the coming AMV contests we get to see more of a mix of all animations and not just anime. Indeed Anime is making a comeback now that Toonami is back on primetime, but most Anime fans are also fans of anything thats generally animation; wether it be MLP, Adventure Time, Futurama, Venture Bros., etc... We want to start taping into those animations and let you editors have more creative ground and more sources to make great videos.
Understandability the .org is mostly for Anime fans and Anime videos, and I am not here to forcibly change that, but more so to give a bigger opportunity for our contests in general.
