Otafest 2016 AMV Contest - With Finalists

Post by Vlad G Pohnert » Mon Feb 29, 2016 11:10 pm

And it give me great pleasure to announce the opening of submissions for Otafest's 2016 AMV Contest

Every year we get a awesome set of AMVs and it has become one of Otafest's prime events. As in previous years, we will also be playing all accepted non finalist entries sometime during the con.

New this year is a date change to July 1 - 3, 2016... And some of you may ask, Is that not the same weekend your at AX? Indeed... But I have made special arrangements to be at the contest (sort of) and I have an assistant helping me as well who I totally trust.

The con is moving to the Calgary Convention Center so this year the AMV contest will be in a much larger Mina events room!


Rules and submission forms can be found HERE
Deadline for submissions is Friday, May 13, 2016

Hope to see some more awesome submissions!

Damn. May 13th, 2916 seems WAAAYYY further into the future than May 17th, 2016. But if you have that many contests you're coordinating, then it's to be expected. :awesome:
