I'm sorry for the confusion. However, the rules both refer to it as an anime music video contest and "Fanime Music Videos".
As I said, the videos that aren't anime/VG are not disqualified. I somewhat mispoke in my prior post (last minute entry frazzles, plus personal problems)- videos make it in based on judges' scores (see rules for our scoring system) and time constraints, period. They're not going to be voted down based on source material. They're in the competition, providing they meet all other quality requirements. (As long as you received an entry accepted rather than entry dq'd email, you're golden.) The audience's decisions are what i was referring to, and are theirs to decide- however, we have had 90% live action (non-japanese media) videos make finals and then go on to win by audience vote in prior years, so don't worry. Our competition is usually about 95% anime, which is why I said it's preferred- it's an anime con, after all. But other media are welcome.
However, if anyone who has sent a mixed media or non-anime entry thus far would rather replace it for a different entry, feel free. If you received bonus points originally for your entry, I will include those bonus points with your replacement.
Edit: I want to apologize regarding the confusion around FMV vs AMV. Fanime's AMV competition was renamed to FMV long ago and it always struck me as odd as an editor since FMV has a different connotation in our hobby. For this year, as I said, and prior years, all animated media is welcome. However, I will be approach my higher ups regarding the name problem to see what we can do to make it less confusing in future years.
