- Due to the number of entries we have received and limited hours we have to show Non-Finalists in the Sunday block in the AMV Room, we will show only one video per creator (the one with the higher score). If you have a video in the Pre-Show or Contest, then your other Non-Finalists video(s) will not be shown in the in the Sunday block. This guarantees at least one video from all accepted entrants will be shown during the weekend.

I've never submitted to this con, but have submitted to other cons you've run... this latest video i did... I'm not positive if its quite the 13+ appropriate mostly in terms of the concept of the video itself as i did censor the song of most terrible language. I was wondering if one can send a preview link to a video to see if it would be acceptable, or is it more of a "Submit and hope for the best" kinda deal? as i would love to submit this video to as many cons as figure i can send it to that might accept it... but was wondering if it might just be shot down and disqualified for being maybe just over the appropriate level allowed.

If you submit, we will go over it first and if the language is to much but can be censored we would let you know, OR you can send a link to us first too

I have a few projects to work on for this year, but with my track record latley not much as been getting finished. I'll work on half the video and then lose interest in it... maybe this will help motivate me to finish a video.

I never received an email after registration. I can't remember when exactly I signed up, but I think it was a week or two ago. Let me know if it went through.
