Spoiler :
Vancouver's longest running AMV contest is back!
http://www.animeevolution.com/programmi ... v-contest/

The quality of entries last year was astounding, let's make this year even better. The rules are the same, the categories have been shuffled a little, and there's a NEW award.

Two weeks until the deadline! We still need a lot more entries, particularly in Comedy.

Thanks for the entries, everyone who has submitted so far. We have a bunch of great videos. The problem, as always, is category distribution.

Dramatic: 11
Romance: 11
Trailer: 4
Upbeat: 2
Fun: 2
Comedy: 0


We really, really need some more :awesome:, :jester: and |:> in this contest. So I'm removing the 2 entry limit for anyone who submits videos in the red categories.

I know from the SakuraCon contest that there are plenty of these videos out there. So just let me have 'em. Before I start re-dubbing the Dramatic entries with Yakety Sax. :nose:

I have my doubts about entering: 1 Upbeat-Fun in its debut. 1 romance also in its debut.

Basically the two videos are making their debut this month so I dunno if Evolution will be the choosen one

If you don't mind me asking, what is the difference between fun and upbeat? Why not make them a single category? o:


Also, I'll see what I can do with messaging peoples and such.
