Note to self: do not start another AMV project where the deadline for the contest you want to enter the video in is a little over a week (thankfully, it's a short video for the Trailer/Parody category).

Also, there's one video that I wasn't sure whether or not I've already submitted to the contest, so I ended up submitting it if I did.

I have edited the subject and the submissions form is closed for both contests. here is a few bit of information for you all:

The Nice Contest: (Main contest) There are 121 Line Items in the entries. about 4-5 are duplications due to errors in accessing it, so we have approximately 116 ENTRIES! HOLY TOLEDO! we received 61 entries after October 4th, 2017!

The Nightmare and Naughty horror contest has received 11 entries, and since these tend to be 18+, not as many are submitted here instead of the main contest!!!!

My Judges and I will be very very busy with all your entries... We thank you for submitting and wish you the best of luck for this year!!!!

So here are the final numbers: 125 individual submissions between the contests... who'd a thought that the Nightmare, Naughty and Nice contests would be a great theme! the Nightmare and Naughty contest got 11 entries (most for the 18+ contest at the 3 year mark that we've had it) and that leaves 114 individual submissions for the main Nice Contest!!!!

Lessons learned for next year:
separate submission links are not necessary! we can put it ALL in one nice neat google form and sheet!

Using the Google Forms made it easy to get the information from the submissions to the judges sheets! (took an hour to get that plus other formatting done! I got the copy paste done in about 10 minutes!

Rules tweaks will happen again (rules are reviewed every year) but there will be some major changes in the rules for next year, and for the better keep an eye out for them in the beginning part of the year.

Try to have an actual upload link in the form, but I will make that part is a bit better worded for next year at the very least!

I would appreciate any feedback you can give me about the google form for the submissions either here or privately, I thought I made it to be simple and straight forward only two things I really noticed: some of you entered filenames that did not match what I ended up downloading so please I'm literally asking the file name so we can find your video without insisting you put a specific format for the file name. I hope you all loved the fact you didn't have to type up a text document this year! I certainly loved not having to go from one text document to another just for a few bits of information!!!!


Thanks again for EVERYONE that submitted! you are making my judges and I work overtime this year! WE LOVE IT! Keep doing that voodoo that you doo sooooo well!!!!!

If I'm one of the people you're sending an e-mail to, I haven't gotten one yet. If you need to speak to me, send me a private message here.

I never received an email either. I'm not sure if this email thing was applicable to all categories, but my entry was a part of the nightmare and naughty entry.

If you did not get an email then there is nothing wrong at this time. a few people submitted information and did not submit a video, some people submitted incorrectly and I've emailed those editors to clear up the issue and some I have not heard from.

Yes as soon as I have the finalists they will be announced. we are working hard to judge all 125 videos and make sure that there are no mistakes! This is a hard year to judge, not only the number of videos but the quality of them!
