First I would like to thank everyone here who did submit a video(s) as without you, there would be no contest. We got a total of 139 submissions this year!
However, we got a very low total of Comedy, not enough to warrant the category by itself. We also received only a few parodies, and a several trailers.
Therefore, we will be combining the Comedy and Parody videos into the Comedy / Parody category, and leave the Trailers category on its own.
By doing this, we do have enough videos in each of the two categories to choose finalists from. Although submissions are closed, we will still accept any Comedy/Parody and Trailers into the contest up until Thursday 11:59 PST, so if you have any and are able to still submit, by all means PLEASE Sent more in.
I will also get more info on a few other AMV related events to everyone within the next few days as I would still like to see if we can do a Creators dinner on Thursday night for all those who will be. Plus information on where to get your tickets for the AMV contest and getting in before the crowed for all those that submitted something and will be at the contest.
We hope to have the finalists announced by March 11 so good luck!
