Oh, just the usual. SakuraCon clapperboard (signed on the back by the guests of honor) for everyone, and a 16" custom made glass trophy for Best In Show.

It was an amazing contest all round. Rider's contest intro was the bomb, Troy's graphics and ballot designs blew people away, and every single one of the finalist videos were top notch.

Copngrats to Everyone!

The AMV Contest was one of the most highest attended Main Event at Sakura-Con

NOTE: the Trophy is a one of a Kind! Designed by SakuraCon's Treasurer herself and just so awesome, I was in tears I could not win it myself!

The reward was definitely in being the contest itself. It was an extremely tough competition but I haven't enjoyed an AMV contest like this in years. Congrats to all the winners. :up:

Congrats to all the winners! What a silly phone call that was - I was like hyperventilating.

I am so honored to have won such prestigious awards. I really poured my soul into that video, and I am glad people are enjoying it. That is all I wanted >///< I am looking forward to making it up to Sakura-Con next year to defend my title!

Your vid also got an interesting response during its victory run at closing ceremonies. After it finished, there was a group up front chanting [Clap] [Clap] [Clap] [Clap] That-was-awe-some... [Clap] [Clap] [Clap] [Clap] That-was-awe-some...

So, Vlad called both of the big winners on the phone in front of a packed AMV room. Both were surprisingly coherent.

Just to correct what I said in Vivifx's vid regarding winning by a "50% margin", I meant she got 50% more votes than the runner up.

I couldn't understand half of what you guys were saying tbh, and I was pretty sure I sounded like an utter ditz. But thank you for that experience XD

I got my clapboards safe and sound, they are awesome as usual! Thanks you guys! <3

Only a few minutes after opening the box, my cat grabbed the bubble wrap and walked off into the other room to, I assume, consummate their love.
