Is the FTP server setup? It keeps telling me "can not connect to server".

I'll be sending in my entry soon. It's been a decade since I've last entered. Literally. :shock:

I just sent an email to the webmaster to check on the FTP server.

I think that has me beat. Last time I released an amv was 2005, but I entered a few old ones at Kumoricon about 2 years back

I am sorry about the delay on this. The FTP issues have been resolved and the FTP is ready to go.

I thought I would try something different. I figure this way I might be able to get a stronger contest across the board instead of a mix of really strong and really weak categories every year.

It also gave me a chance to have the opportunity for the return of the Original Animation category which is something I would like to see available to compete when we have enough entries.

Quick question; the rules say that bumpers aren't allowed, but may a video in the "Tribute" category have a quick "Dedicated to (blank)" or "In memory of (blank)" type bumper somewhere in it. I'm pretty sure that one or both of the Satoshi Kon tributes that played in last year's contest had something like that.

Yes that would be allowed as that is added to enhance the artistic merit of the video.
Bumpers that are disallowed are things like quick studio animations before or after the video, or credit rolls at the end type of things

Thanks for the info. When I saw that Tribute is one of the potential categories this year it suddenly hit me that 2012 marks an important anniversary for the series I've been working with. So now I've decided to approach it as a celebration of that series' history, as apposed to just an amusing action/offbeat video (which it still is)
