Naru 2 U 2009 AMV Contest Results

Postby EVAR » Tue Oct 27, 2009 9:03 pm

Sorry for taking so long to post the results of the Naru 2 U 2009 AMV Contest. First, I was wiped out after the con itself (I helped load out buttloads of stuff on the Monday afterwards), and then had to sort out some other things. Due to some problems, the submission period wound up only being a month, but we got 12 videos out of it, and here they are, in the order they were shown in. The judging criteria and prize categories are for Originality, Technical and Composition (what I call the ability of an AMV to draw you into its world). I put up links to what I could find using the Org's search engine; if any of you could help me find any I'm missing, please PM me with them and I will edit them into this post. Thank you.

But first, the warning screen:

WARNING:
The Naru 2 U 2009 AMV Contest contains plot spoilers, good and bad music (which is subjective, anyway), strobing effects, violence, (oc)cultism, DFCs, upfrontness, Mouse trails, political incorrectness, things blowing up real good, things you shouldn’t try at home and 90% fewer internet memes than the leading brand.
Enjoy the show.

And now the credit screens (if any of them use names you didn't want credited, sorry about that):

That's exactly what it means. There were eight awards (three categories and runners-up, and a 2-way tie for Grand Prize), but only five award/prize winners.
