Tsukino Con 2017 AMV Contest (WINNERS ANNOUNCED)

Post by TsukinoCONtest » Wed Jan 18, 2017 12:01 pm

Hello everyone in AMV land! I am the current coordinator of the Tsukino-Con AMV contest. Last year, we had a very successful contest thanks to your guys submissions, and from the help of former coordinator Allegoriest. Unfortunately this year, Allegoriest has stepped down from the coordinator's spot due to life changes, but the contest is still open and ready for a brand new wave of awesome AMV's.

The contest looks to be a lot of fun again, especially with us formally adding our new Best of BC category, which was a huge hit last year, and hopefully we'll see more great success for this year.

There have been a few changes for this year's contest with regards to submissions, so take a quick look, to make sure you're acquainted!

As a BC creator, you can choose to submit your video for its consideration in another category in addition to Best of BC.

A couple oddities I noticed:

1. shouldn't people also include the title of their videos with their submissions?
2. the categories in the Quick Rules and in the Full Rules don't line up!

Also, just a fun fact, but I was torn between grad schools and had things happened differently this might have been my home con...!

Thanks for spotting that, I suppose it must have been missed upon posting.

Pretty neat fact too!
