After a very successful first year at the Portland, Oregon Moda Center, with new and improved AMV programming and the most amount of AMV submissions ever received at Kumoricon, we are thrilled to continue making this one of the greatest AMV venues in the Northwest.
We also wish to thank Vlad Pohnert for his time and effort assisting us and hosting some of our newest AMV panels. We couldn't have made our growth possible without his support.
To spice things up this year, we have TWO new categories: FAN FICTION and GUILTY PLEASURES!
We are also pleased to announce yet another opportunity to be involved. We are opening up online submissions for one of our newest events from last year "AMV Battle Royale!!!"
We are looking for 4 qualified editors interested in editing in front of a live audience. This year we anticipate a larger turnout, as well as more amazing prizes!
