AnimeNEXT 2016 AMV Contest (It's Over!)

Post by Scintilla » Sat Feb 13, 2016 1:00 pm

(EDIT: Finalists post - schedule of AMV events - overflow block schedules - AFTER DARK sing-along playlist - all-ages sing-along playlist - complete playlist of finalists w/winners)

Hi everyone! This post is to let you know that we are open for entries for the AnimeNEXT 2016 Animé Music Video (AMV) Contest. Being the largest independently-run anime convention in the New Jersey/New York metro area (14,500 attendees in 2015), AnimeNEXT will be held this year at the Atlantic City Convention Center in Atlantic City, NJ, for the weekend of June 10-12, 2016.

Contest Rules -- Entry Form

Please be sure to read the rules in their entirety. In particular, the maximum file size is now down to 300 MB (unless using FTP), and the preferred resolution is 1280x720.
Please also make sure that your e-mail is set up to allow messages from amv@animenext.org without sending them to junk, to make sure that you receive the entry confirmation e-mail and any others.

Entries must be completely received by the end of APRIL 30. The form will stop accepting entries at midnight Eastern time -- no extensions will be forthcoming!

Here's some more reasons to enter our contest:
  • We will ship certificates and prizes to the winners (even internationally) if they cannot make it to the show.
  • Medals for the winners, like last year.
  • All valid entries received on time (unless disqualified) WILL be shown at the convention, even if they do not make finals.
  • No maximum video length. Bring on the prog rock, classical, whatever!
  • The categories are not set in advance. If we have enough good videos in a genre, there will be an award for it. So send us your horror, your trailers, your upbeat, etc.!
We look forward to your entries! Please post here if you have any questions.

Three weeks left!

Similarly to last year, you can track the relative distribution of entered elements here. In particular, we could use more parodies.

Thanks guys, keep 'em coming! I am FINALLY through the backlog and have checked all the videos we have received, so if you haven't received an e-mail from me (please check your junk folders just in case), then you are all set!

One note to those who may yet enter: there's some auto-formatting on the entry confirmation e-mails that is screwing up any URL that ends in a period. If you click the upload link in your confirmation e-mail but get the "You have followed an incorrect link" message, and there's a period after the URL in the e-mail, try tacking it onto the end and loading again.

You gave your address as Houston, Texas; if you've moved since then, I don't have your new address.

All right. I don't have the play order set yet, but I have the finalists, and I believe I have the categories as well -- though it certainly wasn't easy this year; this may be the most difficult category balance of finalists I have ever had to work with.

The following 30 finalists (out of 116 validly entered AMVs) are given in alphabetical order by credit name within each category:

ROMANCE/SENTIMENTAL
Maboroshi Studio + MomtoCutiePia
PieandBeer
PiercedSky
Ram4919911

CHARACTER PROFILE
Celia Phantomhive
Drabaz
Kazemon15
PieandBeer
Rider4Z

DRAMATIC/SERIOUS
Dragonrider1227
JanAnimE Productions
MadMegatax
Pikapwn
Shin and Xophilarus

ARTISTIC
Buggy
lolligerjoj
OnyxAMVs

FUN/UPBEAT
Celia Phantomhive
Cirera
Erik Heckert
Glitzer
James Blond
Katie Parody
Nathen McMullen
Shin

COMEDY/PARODY
Gina Nelson
kasiokami
Miracle Falcon
Rider4Z
Speedy180

Congratulations to all the finalists! Please let me know if there are any questions.

(As for the preshows, I do not expect to announce those before the convention. Not that I've even decided yet.)
