Due to the great success in 2019 we are hosting the second edition of our International AMV Competition! And because it’s Abunai!’s eighteenth edition we are also hosting an 18+ AMV Competition and we’re looking for entries for both competitions!

Abunai! 2022: The Good, The Bad and The Cheeky is the enhanced eighteenth edition of the Netherlands’ cheekiest convention. We’re ready to celebrate our coming-of-age big time. 2022’s theme is Space Western, get ready to explore what’s actually beyond the stars. Our three-day convention will be held at NH Hotel Koningshof in Veldhoven (NL) on the last weekend of August, from February 18 – 20.

For the International AMV Competition: you can enter three AMVs in the following categories: Action, Comedy, Dance/Fun, Drama/Romance and Conceptual. The Conceptual category is for AMVs that do not belong to any of the other mentioned categories. They may, for example, focus on a mood or aesthetic, or merely focus on showcasing editing skills matching the music.

I would like to thank everyone that has submitted an AMV thus far. The Dutch Government sadly decided that all large-scale events planned up until September 1, 2020 are forbidden to take place. As Abunai! would actually take place 28-30 August 2020, we sadly had to postpone the event. The 18th edition of Abunai! will now take place on 27-29 August 2021.

I have thought of many different options, but eventually decided the following for the AMV Competitions:
- The deadline has been changed to Sunday, the 11th of July 2021
- You're still allowed to submit AMVs that have been finished or premiered after the 12th of July 2019

It's also allowed to change your submission if you already submitted so far and want to swap them around with future projects. If you wish to do so please mention which AMV you want to swap in the ''any extra comments'' section. I will also send an e-mail to those who has already submitted soon.

Thank you for your time and support. I continue to look forward to your submissions and look forward to next year!

Stay safe and healthy :heart:

It's been a while since the last update, but we haven't been sitting still. Everyone that has signed up so far has been contacted (if not be sure to give me a poke!). The new Abunai! date has been announced and with that we have arrived to our final deadline which is the 19th of December 2021. The only major difference in the rules is that I have upscaled the number of entries to 3!

Currently we're counting 35 entries:
Action - 8

Comedy - 2

Conceptual - 7

Dance/Fun - 4

Drama/Romance - 14



18+ - 2

Thank you for those who have already entered and I look forward to those to come! <3
