Hello everyone. It's that time again! The 2019 A-M-V.org Viewers Choice Awards are about to begin! We're continuing and improving on the changes that we made last year, but if you need a refresher, here's a list of the major differences from previous VCAs.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 2018 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 will be created for each category, and every eligible video that gets posted will be added to the corresponding voting pool for round 1. Note: If I feel that a nominated video fits into multiple categories, I'll add it to the voting pool for those categories as well.
*Videos that use non Japanese animation will be allowed to participate in the VCAs as long as they adhere to "the spirit of Japanese animation". Moderators will serve as a final say as to what content qualifies, and so we won't be making a comprehensive list of what's allowed and what isn't. But RWBY, Samurai Jack, Avatar, Korra, and various Video Game Cinematics have already been approved.
*The top 6-8 videos voted on by the community will automatically move on the the 2nd round of voting. Moderators will then select an additional 4-6 videos to be added as well.
*After the 2nd round of voting, the top 4-6 videos voted on by the community will move on to the final round of voting.
