As Dinger has posted, I was the proud (and stunned) winner of 4 awards, to include the Tsunami Jones award. My many thanks to Dinger, the staff and the attendees that supported the AMV contest this year.

... and with that, I have to get a version uploaded for all of a-m-v.org to enjoy.

Also the reason there are 2 artistic awards, Oh Oh Oh Sexy Vampire was technically in the non competition exhibition category. I usually do not display their ID numbers on either the Title Slate or the Play List handed out. This year I forgot to do that, and well I will never penalize a video entry because I make a mistake. so Oficially because exhibition is non competition, Fate/Eternal Inferno won Artistic, BUT becauseI screwed up and more people voted for Oh Oh Oh Sexy Vampire (about 4 to 1) I fealt that in all fairness (and because I made a mistake) I would split the award, Both people will recieve a Glass Trophey category Award, I only had 1 so I sent it to the creator of Vampire, as I can get Roy 1 at a later date after a new 1 is ordered, I had enough of other prizes that both got the same amount of prizes but also got the same due any other winner (without diminishing any other winner's prize Pool)

Finally made a video worthy of being called a comedy :D ... That's what happens when you hang around Doki Doki too long....

Congrats to all the winners, the contest was awesome and there were a lot of great videos this year! I happy Roy won the Tsunami Jones Award...

Very cool. Do they happen to give out placings beyond first? This is the first time I've actually had a video accepted into a contest and would like to know how well my video "Hand of Sorrow" did in the drama category. Any chance of finding out complete rankings?
