Uhh, is this a trick question?

Winners will be announced on here after con, plus I'm sure there'll be people live-tweeting the results and whatnot. Any winners not present at con will have their awards mailed to them.

Last year it ran on day 1 from 9pm until midnight in main events, which is generally the timeslot we prefer. I anticipate it will be the same this year.

There will be an encore and awards ceremony on day 3 (Saturday) at 11am, and I'm informed that barring any strange circumstance, it too will be in main events (YAY!!!). I recommend that all finalists try to be at both. :)


Ugh, my new job makes me work Saturday mornings, so I'll miss the awards ceremony.

Someone else will have to live tweet them this year. :(

This is my time ever making an AMV, so this whole waiting thing is killing me. Granted I probably won't make it to the finalist, I just want to know for sure haha. Can you at least tell us how many finalist were picked in each category?

Wow hack/sign... semi old school. I still crack up at the totally weird trailer I cut for that anime back in the day for Bandai.

I think the finalists were announced like 2-3 days before AX2002.
I remember how grueling of a wait that was.... :cry: :x

I think AX2000 had the judging, finalist announcement, and contest all at con over the course of 2 days. I went to that con, but missed the amv contest because of work. I wonder if Nic, Brad DeMoss, or Troy can clarify all this.


I was there that year.. the Judging did not take place until the all nighter we had in the freezing ball room watching all the entries so the finalists were not release until the day of the competition!

Thanks for the heads up, XStylus. I am just checking because I might not be able to make the amv contest and if I do I would feel horrible to have to leave early T^T. Will definitely be there for awards ceremony though I hope to make both XD

Sorry to hear about your work schedule conflicting with the event Troy
