Congrats to everyone~
I'm sad I missed out on seeing them.
Damn interference with the masquerade >.<

I know I'm almost a month late, but I just noticed this now. My Otakon video apparently didn't make the cut. I'm very glad that I didn't buy the train ticket to New York for NYAF, as much as I wanted to go. I would have been extremely disappointed to find out on site that my video wasn't on the ballot.

It would have been nice if I was notified in my e-mail that I made or didn't make the contest. It's something you need to work on for next year, if there is a contest at all. Going from some people's accounts on how the AMV contest was handled, it sure wasn't anything like Otakon, AWA, or even Anime USA....

I believe they said that they would only notify you if your video made it... they wouldn't notify you if it didn't make it.

Regardless, they need to tell those who entered who made the cut and who didn't. It's simple, common courtesy, and it's something they need to work on for next year (among other things, not the least of which is putting the contest showings in a bigger room).....

What about contests that posted finalist lists? Almost every contest I've been in (except AWA's Expo, which doesn't have finalists) has put up a finalist list at least a week before the actual contest. Doesn't that essentially serve the same purpose?

Yeah, that's true -- and to my knowledge, NYAF never posted a list of finalists before the convention.
