Contest screening list and winners!
2015 was another fantastic year for the Tora-Con AMV Contest! We had a record-breaking 74 entries that made it to the judge's screening, and 39 finalist entries that were a part of our convention screenings on the 18th and 19th. Myself and my fellow AMV Coordinator would like to thank everyone who sent their AMVs to our little contest, our dedicated judges who reviewed nearly 4 hours of videos, and to the attendees who watched and voted on the convention screenings. We really appreciate all of you--without you, there would be no AMV Contest!
Anywho, I am sure many of you are eager to find out which AMVs were a part of the convention screening and which AMVs won! Below is a copy of the final video list. Any videos that won an award are highlighted in orange. If you have any feedback, let us know!
