I've been asked if we accept international submissions - and yes, we do. If an international submission is an award winning video, we will ship the video editor the award plaque or medallion (whichever the convention goes with this year), just as we do if an American video editor submits a video but isn't present at the convention.

Let me ask a question for people who run and participate in other contests. For the Animefest AMV contest, I require a link to download the video, but I don't accept just a link to a youtube video. Is that behind the times? Do other contests accept a link to a youtube video?

Thanks in advance for any responses.

I have never actually seen a contest that accepts YouTube links so no they don't so no need to worry about that :DD It's cool of you to ask to make sure so thanks!

We've got ten days left until the submission deadline for the Animefest 2015 AMV contest! Get those videos in! If you'll forgive me for fishing for a moment, I'd love to see more Comedy and Drama vids.

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to ask!

I should be posting the list of finalists by 8/19. It may be an incomplete list - there were some finalists who submitted their video using their real name that I would like to contact and see if they would prefer that I use a pseudonym or studio name.

I would like to give my congrats to all of the finalists, and to encourage those who didn't make the list to keep on making their videos. We got a lot of great submissions this year, and narrowing it down to a finalist list is always filled with tough decisions and close calls.

So, to talk about the contest. I wouldn't feel right if I didn't start by eating some crow - we had technical difficulties at the AMV contest panel, which lead to us having some real audio issues. The audience was forgiving, and the creators that were in the house took our problems with grace. To them, I would publicly like to give my thanks, and to apologize again for the problems. We know how to fix things in the future, and will have the equipment on hand so that next year these problems won't rear their head again.

On the good side, we pulled in a huge audience for the contest. We originally had planned to hold it in the largest of the panel rooms, and at the last minute relocated it to main events - and it's a good thing that we did. The room was filled.

The videos that were submitted this year were an amazing bunch, and it was a pleasure to run the contest. Congrats to all of the winners, and everybody who entered has my admiration and appreciation.
