Ooh, I may enter this!

Question; Are videos that have been submitted for other AMV contests allowed? For example, I am also entering my AMVs for Nan Desu Kan, so nothing has won nor do I know if it will be a finalist yet.

Yes you can! :mrgreen:

Note: If you do have other AMV contest logos (in this case, Nan Desu Kan), we highly recommend that you remove them before you enter them in the competition!

Hope that helps! :)

We would love to screen your enjoyable AMVs for pleasure entertainment and hope to spread how fun AMVs can be, across Sydney and all over Aus! Help us increase the AMV community within Aus!~~

Looking forward to your AMVs!! :3

You can still put it as unsure and we can check it and we decide on it for you lol~ We will send you an email on what category it has been placed and if you don't feel that's the right place, you can tell us and we will place it at your choosing. :)

Remember folks, 10 days to go till the deadline! Not long!

Does it matter if there are a few seconds black screen beginning and end of the AMV?
I have mine set up that way as requested by other contest.
