Tora-Con 2016 AMV Contest **Winners Announcement**

Post by ibmman » Tue Dec 08, 2015 8:11 pm

Tora-Con is a two-day convention at RIT in Rochester, NY. For 2016 we will once again be hosting an AMV contest, with screening and voting on both Saturday and Sunday.

What: Tora-Con 2016
When: April 23 & 24 2016
Where: Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, NY USA
Convention site:

AMV Contest entry deadline: March 12th, 2016
Rules: ... Vwbk0/view
Entry form: ... ubmission/

Please read the rules before you send us videos. We had some issues last year with receiving a handful of videos we would not have been able to show due to scenes with nudity, etc which we had to ask editors to make changes to. Tora-Con is a family-friendly convention and want to keep parents (and the university) happy.

Email with questions.
Hope to see some videos soon! Tell your friends! Have your friends tell their friends!
