This year, Anime Detour will be continuing its annual AMV contest, while also bringing back the popular "WTF" (Whiskey Tentacle Foxtrot) contest for AMVs that are silly, strange, or just plain wrong. You can find the full set of rules for each contest at their respective pages:
AMV Contest - http://www.animedetour.com/contestamv
WTF Contest - http://www.animedetour.com/contestwtf
Entries will be accepted until March 15th, 2013.
Some things to remember:
The judging for the AMV Contest will be heavily weighted towards editors who either hail from Minnesota or its surrounding states, or who are registered for/attending the convention. This is to encourage participation from our local community. However, anyone is welcome to enter. Entries from outside the United States will be considered exhibition-only, and ineligible for prizes
Judging for the WTF Contest takes place the night of the contest by audience applause, so only those editors present at that time will be able to receive their prize. Also, this event is no longer considered an 18+ event, so please remove any language or imagery that wouldn't fit the "PG-13" label. Entries that are too violent or risque, or those which contain strong language will be disqualified, no exceptions.
Thanks everyone, and I can't wait to see some of your awesome AMVs!
