Actually, there's a $5 entry fee for Nan Desu Kan, if you don't attend the convention.

Woah....I wonder if that rule is a combo of what it says and to also deter entries from people who aren't planning on going.

It also seems easy to cheat..you can fake last minute plans or something.

Well despite evil mailng fees most cons are free. I just ended up spending $30 to send out my entry to AWA Pro contest. My poor wallet, money and the AMV world just do not mix.

I actually like what Nan Desu Kan is doing... I mean it's one thing to go to a convention and lose... but it's something else entirely to go to a convention, and then lose to someone who didn't even take the time to frickin go... if you can't afford the time/resources to attend a con, for the love of god don't enter a vid for competition...

just a pet peeve of mine

Bailz,

You can enter tons of online contests. Check it out in the forum. There are several with deadlines coming up soon.

Good luck, and enjoy!

Thing is that some people don't live near a con, or can't visit more than one or just plain can't afford it. If you want to get your name out in the AMV world cons are almost a must and you should submit to what you can.

Bailz brings up an interesting question that has been kicking me in the back of my brain. Now I realize that this is a little off topic, but are there anime conventions in Japan? It would seem a little silly if they didn't, but I've never really heard of any (this is important because in another month or so I will be living in Japan as an exchange student). Just a question. Oh, and another thing, what about AMV? Do the Japanese make AMV at all?

If it's just to get their name out there then they should be submitting for exhibition instead of competition ... but then again ... not all con's have an exhibition slot.. which is really shame ... if the con has a music video contest it should almost be mandatory that it has a music video exhibition in addition to the contest ... in one of the smaller rooms or something...
