Hello everyone. The wait is finally over, and the 2018 A-M-V.org Viewers Choice Awards have officially begun! This year, we've made a number of changes to the voting process, and so if you haven't been following this announcement thread, here's a list of the major ones.Q: What are the VCAs (Viewer Choice Awards)?
The AnimeMusicVideos.org Viewers Choice Awards is an annual opportunity to recognize and acknowledge the videos that stand out above and beyond the rest. It is a way for everyone who enjoys anime music videos here to say “Thank you” to the ones who went out of their way to put that extra effort of creating a video that is really exceptional. And so every year, we let members vote on what videos they thought were the very best from the previous year. There are awards for Best Action, Editor of the Year, Best MEP, and quite a few more! If you want to see what has won in previous years you can go here and click through the years!
- *All videos that premiered online in 2017 are eligible to participate in the VCAs (even videos that aren't cataloged on A-M-V.org).
*Voting will be conducted using google form verification, and will be open to both A-M-V.org members and non-members.
*Nomination threads have been created for each category, and every eligible video that gets posted will be added to the corresponding voting pool for round 1.
*The top 6-8 videos voted on by the community will automatically move on the the 2nd round of voting. Then, a panel of judges will select an additional 6-8 videos to be added as well.
