PILCON 2017 AMV/FMV Contest (Winners announced!)

Post by Birdwards » Tue Apr 25, 2017 1:45 pm

Hi, everyone! I work at a public library in Peabody, MA, and we're holding PILCON, our first-ever pop culture convention, on Saturday, May 6.

One of the events at PILCON 2017 will be an AMV/FMV contest. Any video source is eligible, be it from TV, film, games, comics, or any other medium; animated or live-action; Japanese, Western, or from anywhere else. We don’t have any set categories, themes, or anything like that, but we may divide the videos into categories if we get a lot of entries.

If any of you have any videos you would like to submit, we would love to see them! I know it’s kinda short notice, but the deadline is Sunday, April 30. You don’t have to attend PILCON to submit, but I encourage you to check it out if you’re in the area. Admission is free, and if you win Best in Show (as determined by audience vote), you can get a 3D printed trophy from us.

Click here for the submission form and the complete rules.
Click here for more info about PILCON.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask me in this thread or at the email address listed on the submission form page.

Just posting to say "Woah, I had no idea my home town was doing a small con at the library. Good for you guys!" I moved away in 08, but I'm all for helping out - I'll toss something your way if i have anything that is eligible.

I don't see any freshness requirements, so we can submit previously made videos?

My parents are both librarians (mother has a MA in Library Science from University of Illinois Urbana-Champagne, and father has a MA in Library Science and Information... Systems? Technology? I think... from University of Texas at Austin).

I like libraries. Libraries are awesome. I grew up in them, considering.

Thank you to everyone who has submitted so far! I'm thrilled with the response we've gotten.

Yes! We decided against including a freshness rule since this is our first year, and as a small con, we wanted to remove as many barriers to entry as possible. Assuming we get to do this again next year, we will probably add a freshness rule then. But for now, videos from any time will be gladly accepted.

Okay, I'll fill out the form. I will be submitting Boy at the Piano. It's probably my favorite of my pure drama (not romance) videos.

Let me get it uploaded...

Alright, we've sent confirmation emails to everyone who has submitted the form so far. If you haven't received an email, or the information in the email is incorrect, please let us know ASAP. If you haven't submitted yet, you have 50 hours left.

Thanks to all the editors, and good luck!

Here’s the full list of finalists:

Allegoriest

We received enough videos to sort them into categories; all finalists will be informed when the categories are determined. This Saturday, the attendees of PILCON will vote for the category winners and Best in Show, and we will also be giving a Judges’ Choice award. The winners will be announced at Closing Ceremonies, and will be posted online after the convention. Congratulations to all the finalists, thanks again to everyone who submitted, and we hope to see more of your work next year!
