Do you have restrictions to the genres? Ex. Horror?

While I do apologise on not having a Horror or any other category/genre mentioned on the website (Myself and the co-ordinator will review on this for next year, as this competition is still growing in Australia), you may choose a category that is mentioned on the site that you think is close enough to your AMV (if you are still not sure, just select the "Unsure" option when submitting, and us judges will determine which it will go under). In addition, myself and the judges will not just grade your AMV based on Category/genre, but also on how your AMV is made (ie. Techniques, skill, etc.) so you can still win in the competition.

Hope that clears things out! :D

TritioAFB, I have your AMVs now. You may have received an email from the AMV Co-ordinator accepting your entries, but I too will also mention that all three are acceptable for the competition.

As for your Horror AMV, I believe it would be close to Drama too (since, in my opinion, its shows the serious sides of things, as well as the intense moments the characters experience in the scenes), however, as I said before, marking AMVs based on just category is not what us judges will do, but also look at techniques and skills involved (and my initial impressions have been so far positive ^_^).

Thank you for your entries and Good Luck in the competition!

A Drama-Horror? ... I didn't see it like that, but it will be interesting to see it dealing with the drama category

Well, this is only my opinion and its not really on paper yet, so it hasn't been finalised (I even think it may have some link to the action category too). The co-ordinator, myself and our other judges will decide on it (will come to a decision a day after the comp entries close on June 30) on what genre area it should belong to in the competition, but rest assured that its already accepted, and wont be taken out of and disqualified in any way. :)

Once again, I do apologise for a lack of Horror category in this competition, its definitely something myself, the co-ordinator and the judges can think about for the next competition as we are looking ways to improve it every year and I will take this situation into account. :)

Nah don't worry about the Horror category. I was already asked to put that video just for this event so I guess the audience will be pleased with it :up:

The ones who get prizes are the winners of the Action, Comedy/Parody, Drama/Romance and Upbeat/Dance, as well as those who also get People's Choice, Judge's Choice and Best Technical (So a total of 7 major prizes to be won). In addition, the four categories also have runner ups, so they get a minor prize.

As for an AMV theatre, there isn't such a place, but in previous years AMVs have been usually shown at our Art Stage in the past (our 2nd stage at the event). However, when the official event schedule comes out, I will tell you later where the AMVs will be screened. :D
