There isn't an upbeat/dance category? :c
Edite:
The Professional category, the AMV must have won a 'Best Of' or the editor must have won the category with any video.

The Rules wrote:The preferred format for AMV submissions is Xvid, but MPEG-1, MPEG-2, and Divx can also be accepted at your own risk. You may use any codec you wish, however your submission must have a file extension of “.mp4”.
Isn't this rather contradictory on two counts:
  • If MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 are accepted, then why does the file extension have to be .MP4?
  • Are we limited to XviD/MPEG-1/MPEG-2/DivX, or may we use any codec we wish?

Reading that rule made me die a little on the inside...coordinators should know better than to recommend such awful formats...thankfully they will accept "MP4s" so we can submit h264, lol...

This rule is pretty f**king stupid too...
The Rules wrote:All videos must have a 3 second “slate” that has your full name, your username, your e-mail address, the name of your submission (if it has one) and the category(ies) that you are submitting it to IN WHITE TEXT ON A SOLID BLACK BACKGROUND.
I really hate it when conventions pick coordinators that create unnecessary rules which makes it a pain in the ass for us to submit...

Congrats to the winners but it is odd to have 2 videos in a very similar style both getting an honorable mentions... Animu Stew and Rejected AMV's. I have seen both and Scott's Rejected AMV's imho is far more superior. I have also heard from various creators that the jokes in Stew are not original / been done before...

I would also recommend next year have a anti-troll rule so you have newer stuff in the contest. I run MTAC in Nashville and this year if the video has won more than 10 awards (I am considering 6) I won't accept it. People can make new stuff and limiting videos that have won less than 10 awards won't really reduce the field by a ton.
