Such Otakon, Very 2017, Much DC, Wow

Postby VicBond007 » Fri May 26, 2017 6:50 pm

Sorry for The Lateness. Otakon is totally happening guys!

AMV Contest Rules:
http://vicbond007.net/otakon2017_rules/

AMV Contest is accepting submissions at this time. The deadline is pushed way back this year to make up for the late rules. There is ZERO chance for an extension. Pre-screenings for all entries will be on July 8th, which means I'm spending my 4th, processing last-minute AMVs. 'Murrica.
Also, the anti-trolling window was widened since we've always accidentally lined it up with AnimeNext in the past, people might have submitted to said convention expecting their entry to also be allowed into the Otakon contest as well. We don't want to "punish" anyone because of the unnaturally late deadline.

AMV Theater will be back and bigger than ever. Our room is 100% larger and 20% cooler than previous years!

Don't you think I didn't notice and appreciate this. Thanks!

Got my entry uploaded already; there's no other step required after that, right?

You can also use an FTP program like FileZilla to do the FTP transfer once logged in.

Yeah, same here for the past MONTH since I spoke to them at their table about Zenkaikon.

Has anyone received confirmation letters about their videos being testes and approved yet? I haven't heard anything back yet from the contest about that.
