Winners in each category were determined by audience vote. Also, there was one Judge's Award. Unfortunately, my entries in Action and Drama did not finish in the money in either category.
3rd: "Under Pressure", Verity Caron
2nd: "Ballad For Two", Danny Jun
1st: "Into the Fire", Laurent Clermidy
3rd: "Digi-X", Steve Leu
2nd: "It's Time to Party", Adam Porrovecchio
1st: "Das Omen", Laurent Clermidy
3rd: "Taijitsu for Dummies", Justin Corriveau
2nd: "Body Movin'", Dan Orlowitz
1st: "What Lain Bought on Ebay", Raymond Rabke
"Das Omen" won the Judge's Award. Still goes to show you, videos with (well-used) After Effects still win contests more often than those that don't (use them at all).
However, the contest was MUCH BETTER RUN this year, and the entries for the most part were worlds better than previous years. Things are looking up for Anime Mid-Atlantic's AMV contests, if the quality of the entries and the presentation of this year's contest will carry on in the future.
More details will be forthcoming from the contest organizers very soon.
Defying the future one step at a time....
