Congratulations to all of our video winners! It was an amazing contest overall and we received a lot of positive feedback about it. I will get the medallions out soon.

------------------------------
Like last year, Tekko will have two showings of the AMV Contest this year: an "early bird" showing Friday, April 8th at 10:30AM in the AMV Theater and the main event on Saturday, April 9th at 12 Noon in Main Stage. Awards will be announced on Sunday, April 10th at 3PM.

btw, if you are an AMV creator and plan to attend Tekko 2016 this year, please let me know by PM. We not only would like the opportunity to say "hi", but we would also encourage you to sign up for the Creator Spotlight event taking place on Saturday at 2:30PM after the AMV Contest main showing. It is a good opportunity to introduce yourself to the Tekko AMV crowd and show off some of your works!

Good luck to our finalists! :)

-----------------------------

Hi, everyone:

This year, Tekko 2016's theme category is Video Games & MMORPGs. We also have the return of our Extreme AMV Contest for extreme and adult content videos. Click here for the official rules & guidelines of the Tekko 2016 AMV Contest & Extreme AMV Contest.

If you have any questions or problems with submission, please send an e-mail as noted in the Contact Information section.

Edit 01-08-2016: Please note that we have a major rule change to our video source requirement: This year, we will accept all forms and origins of animation source, but please keep in mind when submitting your music video that Tekko is a Japanese pop culture convention.

Also, if you are planning to submit a video to Tekko, please also consider submitting your videos to the MTAC 16-Bit AMV Contest & Extreme AMV Contest. Both contests have virtually the same structure, which means you can use the same video entry information for both contests.

Thank you in advance for any and all submissions you consider for our contest. :D

Since the theme is video games, will you allow videos that use league of legends cinematics? They are certainly anime styled, but they were produced in America. https://youtu.be/B5h6-M1jpM8

To be honest, I am not sure if the convention is generalizing the video game theme or restricting it to Japanese-origin video games (as Tekko is branded a "Japanese Pop Culture Convention"). It's a fair question, and I will ask the convention about it.

I taked with PittJCS, and we are going to change our video source rule:

– As this is an anime music video contest, the majority (approximately 51% or more) of your video must contain Japanese anime or Japanese video game-related media (that originated in Japan). This year, we will accept all forms and origins of animation source, but please keep in mind when submitting your music video that Tekko is a Japanese pop culture convention.

Please note that last bit, as PittJCS prefers non-Japanese videos submitted at least have manga or anime inspiration (like Avatar / Korra and RWBY). Having said that, this rule change means we will not reject AMVs solely on the basis that it uses animation sources outside of Japan.

So, if you like, you may send in your request for your LoL-sourced video for review. :)

Still a long while to the deadline, but we got in quite a few early submissions. Keep them coming in, especially those VGMVs for the theme!

Tekko's off to a great start, and we are still looking for more of everything! Don't forget that we are seeking more Video Game MVs as well, so that we can possibly make the Theme category finally happen this year!

Also, we are seeking entries for the Extreme AMV Contest, and we take (almost) anything for it. If it's too hot for the all-ages main contest, our Extreme Contest will give you a chance to showcase your videos to the (18+) AMV fans!

If you have any questions about the contest, please let me know! :D

We're still looking for more videos, especially more Extreme AMV contest entries. Also, we are close to offering the Theme (Video Games & MMORPG) as a possible new category, but we would like to see more if you have them.

Keep those submissions coming, and if you have not received a response from me on your prior entries, please let me know. :)

Tekko's deadline is fast approaching! We're still looking for other videos for the Main Contest. It's still largely an open field, so please consider sending your contest-worthy videos our way!

btw, did you see that we have an "Extreme AMV" contest? Extreme basically is any kind of video that we can't show during the Main Contest -- ranging from curse-heavy to hyper-violent-blood-everywhere to hentai. The Extreme Contest gives everyone who has that too-hot-for-the-convention video a chance to entertain our late-night 18+ audience and walk away with a prize! So, if you have that video that other conventions pass on, check our Extreme Contest rules and give our competition a try!

I have your entry for MTAC, but no entry form for Tekko. Do you want me to add your video from MTAC to also be in this contest?
