(Edit, 5/6/13: Finalists announced here!
Yes, we're back! Cyanna, Jefferson, and I had such a blast running last year's AnimeNEXT AMV Contest that we're doing it again in 2013. Being the largest independently-run anime convention in the New Jersey/New York metro area, AnimeNEXT is returning to the Garden State Exhibit Center in Somerset, NJ
, for the weekend of June 7-9, 2013
.As of January 28, we are officially open for entries.AnimeNEXT 2013 AMV Contest Rules - Entry Form
Please be sure to read the rules in their entirety and include a completed entry form with your submission. We received at least one video last year that we could not show because the creator never sent us an entry form (as well as at least one entry form for which the creator never sent us a video!).
Of particular interest, we still have no maximum length and we still have no hard-and-fast preset categories, so those of you with very long or hard-to-categorize videos may wish to give us a look.
Entries sent by post must be postmarked by APRIL 27
and received by MAY 1
. Entries sent via FTP must be completely received by the end of APRIL 27
So as I type this, you have a full three months to get your submissions in. Last year was a great contest and we're aiming to make this one even better, so we look forward to seeing your best!
