We've already got a few, but still plenty of time and room for more submissions.

Again, let me know if you have any questions. :)

Only three more weeks until the deadline!

If you have videos that you think are too extreme for contests, why not send it our way and let us showcase it in the separately-held Tekkoshocon Extreme AMV Contest? It's a contest set aside especially for those videos that normally wouldn't be shown due to content restrictions. Except for a very few reasons, we'll take what you give us--extreme language, extreme violence, extreme sex & nudity, it's all acceptable! We also have a special award set aside just for the best Extreme Contest entry.

This contest will only be held with enough entries to make it happen, so if you (or someone you know) might have an extreme video, let them know we're looking for them!

Less that 2 weeks to go, and the contest is still looking for more videos.

We have quite a few dramas and a smattering of other basic categories, so we could use any type of video you want to enter. :)

Just an FYI for everyone requesting FTP access at the last min. Please note that FTP requests are not granted instantaniously. That is to say, you will not see the FTP info as soon as the page re-loads. Please do not click the request FTP button multiple times as this generates multiple requests and if there is a close request it will negate the open request and no FTP account will be created.

The average turn around for FTP accounts is 1~3 days. As the system requires a live person to authorize the account, it is related to when I have time to do it. I do work 9+ hours a day and also need to sleep, so I'm not always available.

Just something to keep in mind, as I often see negated open requests in the system. If you click the request FTP button and the wording has changed to 'Close FTP' then the account request is in the system. You should receive your account via email within 24 hours, and it should also list the account info in the system as well within that time frame. If you don't get the email 24 hours after you submitted the request, simply go back to the system and see if the info is listed, if not, then close the account and then re-open it. This will help with problems with email transmissions as sometimes I don't get the email notifications and sometimes ya'll don't get the FTP info via email.

Hi, everyone. :)

Tekkoshocon's deadline is fast approaching, so I would like to lay out a full timeline for the deadlines:

- For the Main Contest, you must register your video into the Contest Archive by 11:59pm EDT March 10th.
- Those who register for the Main Contest but have not yet uploaded to their FTP account will have until 11:59pm EDT March 11th to upload the video.
- Due to low submissions and different judging, the Extreme Contest only will be extended an extra week to 11:59pm EDT March 17th. The videos submitted must be an Extreme video as defined in the AMV Contest rules. No new videos registered between March 11th and March 17th will be considered for the Main Contest.

These deadlines cannot be extended, so as to give the Main and Extreme Contest judges enough time to review the videos.

After looking over the current submission list, we need more entries in every category. If possible, we'd love to see more for the "Girls With Guns" theme category as well, so that we could offer it this year.

So, if you've got videos you want to put it into a convention contest, please send them our way. We'd love to see them. As always, if you have any questions about the contest, please let me know right away. :)

... and that's it for the Main Contest! For those who still haven't received FTP information, you should receive it soon. Note that we need the videos uploaded to the FTP no later than 11:59pm on the 11th. Finalists for the contest will be released on the week of the convention, sometime between April 1st - 3rd.

Now, for those who weren't aware, we are still accepting submissions but only for the Extreme Contest. We need just need more entries to really make it a good late-night contest, so we've extended Extreme entries to Sunday the 17th to give those with these types of entries a little more time to get their videos submitted.

Let me know if you have any questions, and good luck to our Main Contest qualifiers. :)
