Anime North does not announce finalists in advance. We like the revelation of the winners and finalists to be as much a surprise for the editors as for the audience. It adds to the anticipatory excitement, as you wait to see if your video is played.

The confirmation I sent you only lets you know whether your video has qualified for judging. We have three rounds of processing. First your video has to qualify for the MVC. Did you follow our rules? Etc. Next we have a pre-judging round to whittle down the competition to a more manageable level for our judges. Then we have the judging round - from which the awards are determined.

This was a strange year for judging. Technical/action videos such as yours did not do as well overall as they have in previous years.
Although, ironically, the Judges' Choice winner was a technical video.

I can tell you that your video was very well received by our Sunday audience. I make a note of audience reaction for each video as it is played. Your video was in the top 20 for audience reaction (measured very unscientifically). We don't have an audience award. But if we did, it would have gone to Birds and the Bees.

If you like I can post the entire the play list on the forum over the next few days.

The list either is accurate and the saturday afternoon showing played some wrong amvs. Or the list is wrong and the saturday afternoon showing had the accurate play list.

I was there and "Famous Last Words of a Solo Player" by Emerald Gaurdian Productions played and is not in the list. AND ALSO
"The Club Can't Handle Space Dandy" by JurassicJeremyJames was played and is not in the list

EDIT: It seems this list does not contain the novice finalists

This was my first time entering a con and I didn't expect as much as a honourable mention, wow, thank you!
And congrats to everyone. All the entries I've seen so far have been amazing.

Is there a youtube video or a page in the search engine for either of these AMV's?

1. Good Clean Fun … haunter103
2. This Video Was (Not) Entered Into Drama … Sephiroth

These are the only 2 I can't find anywhere that I'd love to re-watch when I can.

And good work everyone, the AMV contest is always one of the highlights of the con for me.

I got almost all the finalists now in my playlist which is surprising. Still need

Identity … Emma Browning (found)
This Video Was (Not) Entered Into Drama … Sephiroth (found)
2 4 6 0 1 … NWJ
Good Clean Fun … haunter103 (found)

If anyone knows of these videos being on youtube let me know. Or even if they are on here somewhere. Im a completionist :wink:. And if you made one of those then UPLOAD THEM TO YOUTUBE AND LINK THEM!

I found a user on here for NWJ but they havent uploaded any videos recently :(. The others 3 I had no luck even finding the user accounts on here or youtube.

thanks Pikapwn
