I'm Gonna be honest, no. At this point i'm improvising everything, but hard deadline time: april 10th for sure, though that's a bit late and i'm thinking around the end of march, beginning of april (so i guess in about 2 weeks).

Actually, i'll just say this: YES! March 29th.

(yeah i had to create new categories and move things around and stuff so i might have had to change the category of your video or something. i did try to honor the editor's original intended categories as much as possible, though.)

none of these are in any particular order

i'll be sending e-mails and messages out to all the participants shortly

if you didnt' make it but you want your video shown anyway, we're doing an exhibition later in the day so just msg me and i can probably fit it in, i'll be showing a lot of the ones that i liked that didn't make it already so yeah.

Thanks everyone for participating! The con is about two weeks from now, so i'll update this thread with the winners sunday, april 14th. Good luck to all the finalists~

Oh, and we ended up getting like 102 entries! thanks to you guys i know this is going to be a great show for the first ever sabakucon~~ |:>

that is pretty annoying...i was afraid of not getting enough entries and i thought the date limit would be kinda pointless, but 100 entries is quite a bit so in hindsight maybe i could have limited it to 2012+, i'll certainly do so next year! sorry for the sloppy rules this year.

drewaconclusion wrote:No comedy category?

that was another thing, there were actually quite a few of these entries, so i might have gotten away with a comedy category, but there weren't that many and the quality of the show would have suffered due to stretching the already thin categories (upbeat and offbeat) even thinner and creating a new ultra thin category (comedy)
i think next year i'll put work into obtaining comedy entries though because there were some awesome comedy amvs that i don't believe were adequately represented here.

(god i sound like a broken record "next year, next year")

Best off beat: Battle of 2000: Takoyaki Wars by PacoTacoShell

Best upbeat: Bored with me by PacoTacoShell

Best Romance: Enchanted by AimoAio

Best Drama: Red Thread by Cariuchiha

Best Overall: Waltz S by Iren S.S.

Judge's Favorite: Put Ya Guns on! Irriadin

Coordinator's Favorite: Make your own tomorrow by CompBros

(all except the last two were by audience vote)

I will work on sending prizes now, i have some, they're neato anime volumes for legit animes, but i might have to foot the shipping bills myself so it could take a while (lookin a t you, armenia =_=) but hopefully by next year you'll have em, and a cute piece of paper saying you won or something, idk. thanks for the entries everybody, couldn't have done it without you, the staff and the audience were both blown away with everything, and i myself didn't even do that great it was just the fact that i got a lot of entries, and a lot of good entries, so yea, thanks again, hope you enter next year, if not i'll go bugging you again until you do!

(if you were dissatisfied witth this year, please message me or next time we'reboth on skype just mention it or something, not just to get you to enter next year i just need to know how to improve and stuff)

ohh and for those of you asked for your critiques those are coming soon too i promise ><
