Regarding Awards: Due to the special nature of these awards (custom designed and made out of metal) the awards are still in production. As soon as they are ready they will be shipped to the mailing addresses provided on the entry forms. If there are any delays that cause the awards to take longer than expected (currently 2 - 3 months) then we will send out a mass email to the winners informing them of the delay. If your mailing address changes between now and when we ship the awards, please reach out to us so we can make sure you receive your award(s). We thank you for your patience and cooperation!

It's time to get ready for the biggest NDK yet! This year we are celebrating Nan Desu Kan's 20th anniversary and we want to go all out!

Official Rules
Submission Page
Submission deadline is August 12th, 2016

Final Countdown to Deadline

We are currently in the process of redesigning our world famous Asukas. This year our girl will be given a new pose and be made from real metal!
Image

In addition to new and improved Asukas, this year only we are adding a special category called AMV Legends.
This is a one time only category for the 20th anniversary of Nan Desu Kan. Only editors who have won in a previous NDK AMV contest (any category excluding Iron Chef) are eligible for this category. Videos may be any genre and to mark your video as Legends simply list it in the Note section of the submission form. This video does not have to be exclusive but must follow all other rules for Nan Desu Kan's AMV contest. In addition to an Asuka, a 2TB External Hard Drive will be an included prize for the winner. If we do not receive enough entries to keep the category competitive, videos entered into the Legends category will be resorted into the category that will fit it best. While we will do our best to reach out to past winners and extend invitation, sadly our logs only go back so far. If you do not receive an invitation either on AnimeMusicVideos.org or via email, please simply note the year and video you won with on your entry form when submitting to the Legends category.
So once again we are looking for the very best AMVs from around the globe. If you think you've got what it takes, show us your stuff and submit today!

Here is a recap of the phenomenal contest from last year.

Action/Adventure: Vintage Misery - Shin

Does the 70% anime rule apply only to videos with live action? I'm guessing not, but that seems to be the way it's written.

Just to clarify I don't run this in any way shape or form and Im not trying to step on anyones toes or anything but since its been a fe was days and there was no answer and Ive been submiting long enough to feel I know the answer I figured I'd answer. If anyone involved more directly with the contest wants to clarify or if I'm wrong and they say so I'd go with their answer that being said:

No, the 70% anime rule applys to all videos. So your video can contain other sources but it mudt still be mostly anime footage.
Again if yue or any other staff member says this is in correct take their word for ig over mine thats just how I've always interpreted it and alk the videos I've seen in the contests in all the years I've been going have seemed to follow this rule as well.

On a side note so I don't have to double post... Does anyone know if we are planning a meet up again this year for those of us attending the convention? There's usually a thread in the anime convention section for it but I didn't see one this year so I figured I'd ask.

I wanna submit this year and I saw you can submit up to 2014 to an extent. I was curious, since slide shows aren't accepted would a full manga music video be accepted? The one I want to submit is from March 7th 2014. I just want to double check. I have some new videos I'd like to submit since you are giving editors 3 entries this year ^_^

With me getting ready for Otakon this weekend, I totally didn't realize that the deadline for NDK was a few days away.

Just sent a couple of my videos as entries for the contest.

Hey there.

I didn't see my entry in the contest or overflow. Can you confirm that you received it? Gurren - An American Musical by Studio Hawk?

Congrats to the finalists, but I have to say this was my reaction when I heard my Ghibli colab with my wife was in Upbeat/Fun... lol

Hope the contest is a huge success!
