Hi guys. I'm here to advertise Parallels, a secret santa-style fanworks exchange for rare fandoms of Asian sources. (This isn't a contest and it isn't just AMVs or I'd post in one of the other forums.) I'd love to see more AMV editors sign up (or Manga MV editors or live action vidders for that matter).
The way it works is that people nominate fandoms, I make the signup form from the nominated list, and then people sign up requesting 4 fandoms and offering 4+. I match everyone up, and you make any 1 of your recipient's 4 requests. (You can specify that you only want to make AMVs and receive fic, make and receive art, write fic but receive anything, etc.) We're currently in the nominations phase.
Information is available on Livejournal, Dreamwidth, or Tumblr. The exchange itself takes place on the Archive of Our Own.
I've also made a promo video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xhRzynsSXaE
