Sure thing! I will be submitting my entries in an hour or two. But I had a question with regarding one of the AMV's that I wanted to enter. No I'm not sure if comedy would be one of the categories for the AMV contest, but if so, I have an AMV that features music, although it's just singing with no instrumentals. Now I just uploaded the full version of the AMV here, and I'm not sure whether or not I have to take out the ending credits or not. Judging by the rules of other AMV contest, I probably do. Just please specify whether or not I do.

But on to the AMV itself. Now before I show you the link to it, I have one VERY important question I have to ask you...
"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step"
-Laozi (Chinese philosopher)

"Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man HOW to fish and you feed him for life."
-Mr. White (Tenkai Knights) via Laozi

"That's what Blue SNOW said"
- Brian from Family Guy, and me (in that Family Guy parody video I made that's on YouTube, amongst other places)

Yes, credits need to be removed.... Just singing can be op too, so long as it's a song... And the other important questions is?

Vlad

Ok, thank you for telling me. The other important question in relation to one of the AMV's I want to submit is...

Are Asians More Androgynous? :lol:

https://www.animemusicvideos.org/members/members_videoinfo.php?v=202678

And the description before you see the description spells it out as to the full explanation for why I made this AMV. And since it's LGBT/Queer Month, (here in America at least) i'd figured that this would actually be helpful regarding the Androgynous community in general, since at least here in America, they don't often get talked about, also w/ regards to what issues they have to face as Androgynous people. So even though this is a comedy AMV, like I said in the description, I hope that this AMV will start a conversation regarding the Androgynous community and the issues they have to face. So ok, here's the link to the Youtube version of it as well. Since i'm a Youtube Partner now, a good chunk of my income is dependent on money I make from the ads on my videos so please disable Adblock and/or other like programs before you click on the link out of respect for all the hard work I put into these videos I spend many hours making. Thank you and here's the Youtube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DX8F4wPSvzo

And an "AMV contest" version of the AMV will be "rendered", uploaded, and linked to you guys within the hour so you don't have to worry about that.

Ok, i'm just about to submit my entries, sorry, that LAST AMV took much longer than I expected to fix. Plus, I realized that when you render an AMV in 720p, even if the original footage is mostly 480p anyway, it will STILL look much better rendered as a 720p AMV, rather than a 480p AMV. Just as an FYI. Ok, here they are, in like 10 minutes or so.

Ok, bad news. The form is down and there was still like a half hour when I tried to submit my AMV's. What gives? I sent an email to the AMV email address so you can contact me there, or on here. Either way is fine. Ok, thank you in advance.
