This year I will be running the Otafest AMV Contest. If your all wondering what happened to Jenny, she's still around and has more responsibilities for Programming and is sort of my Boss now
I've been involved in Otafest's AMV Contest for the past 6 years, taking care of all the technical requirements, encoding and playing the day of previously.
I have updated the rules and made some changes, but essentially most of the way the contest is run is much the same. The biggest change now is that instead of just the audience picking their favorite, we will have Audience's Favorite 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place just like the judges' top 3 awards.
Rules can be found HERE
. Deadline for submissions is April 19, 2013 so there is plenty of time.
This year as well, Otafest will have a dedicated AMV room (There actually was one last year too) and we will look at the possibility depending on contest scheduling in playing all non-finalists who are accepted into the contest as well.
Good luck to everyone!
