I didn't think I was gonna get in after the badges were depleted. I was lucky... some of the people in the line behind me had to go by-by.

Hey folks! Sorry I forgot to post the winners yesterday. If you were not at the convention, and did not receive your prize, you should be receiving an e-mail from the Zenkaikon Chair asking you for your mailing address.

I'll post more detailed information later in the day regarding runner-ups and who got what percentage of votes. I'll also browse the .org for links to any uploaded AMVs submitted to Zenkaikon.

Action
DirtyD - "Power Heavensent"

Drama
NightHawk - "Be A Man"

Romantic / Sentimental
Xiao - "I Love AMVs"

Upbeat / Comedy

Congratulations to you folks!

1.) I didn't check up the AMV submissions until just now. The AMV editor of "Be a Man" listed his AMV as an Action / Comedy, but has been categorized under Action by other conventions. I thought the video to be a dramatic video, and the only funny part is, "hey, isn't this song from Mulan?"

Title: Be A Man
Anime Expo 2008 Best Action/Adventure and Creator's Favorite
ANimethon 15 (2008) Best Action/Adventure

2.) I couldn't find any AMV Information on the a-m-v.org website for, "I love AMVs," but I'd call it quirky, more than comedy.

3.) We didn't get many submissions, and everyone who submitted a video, that wasn't disqualified for having subtitles, TV logos, or sending me a link to their ewetoob upload, had a video the contest. What we get is what you see.

In hindsight, I'd switch the categories for khcraze16 - "A Not Very Disturbing Disturbia" and NightHawk - "Be A Man." But, what's done is done.

Next year, I will be bringing in my PC to run the AMV contest, so that we can accept all sorts of shapes, sizes, formats, and encodes. I haven't come across an AMV yet that I can't play back smoothly. This will also make it so that there won't be any skipping or pauses on the DVD presentation, as there will be no DVD.

When you say local, does that mean you live near the King of Prussia Mall? If it does Im'a kill you and then steal your house.

By local I mean I can hop a SEPTA bus and get there. Family used to shop at the mall back in the day.

And I live in a crappy apartment near Center City. Not worth stealing. But I've got my Katana ready in case you wanna try.
