Tora-Con 2018 AMV Contest - Results!

Post by Tora-Con AMV Contest » Mon Nov 27, 2017 8:25 pm

Tora-Con is a two-day convention at the Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, NY. For 2018 we will once again be hosting an AMV contest, with screening and voting on both Saturday and Sunday. The AMV contest is open to all editors, including those who will not be physically attending the convention. However, we do love seeing entries from local editors in New York State or the Northeast US!

What: Tora-Con 2018
When: April 14 & 15 2018
Where: Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, NY USA
Convention site: http://toracon.org/

AMV Contest entry deadline: March 10th, 2018 @ 11:59pm (Eastern Standard Time)
Contest Rules: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1JPIed5 ... 9vfdB/view
Entry form: https://toracon.org/contests/amv-contest/(scroll to bottom of page for entry form link)


Please read the rules before you send us your entries. Tora-Con is a family-friendly convention and want to keep parents (and the university) happy, so don't send send us videos with scenes containing nudity, or songs jam-packed with expletives.

Note that we do have a "freshness" rule, so we request that you not enter videos that have won an award at two or more conventions, or videos that are more than two years old (from their premiere) based on the date of the convention. This is in part so we can give new videos and up-and-coming editors a shot at getting into the contest. See the complete rules document for more info on this.

Prizes for winners in the past have included trophies/plaques, and gift certificates to Amazon, Rightstuf, etc!

Email amv@toracon.org with questions.
Hope to see some videos soon! Spread the word around to your AMV-editing friends!

Hello everyone!

The Tora-Con 2018 AMV Contest will be closing submissions this weekend--at midnight on March 10th!

We are particularly low on comedy, upbeat, and trailer AMVs! If you have a finished AMV from one of these categories that meets our contest rules, then you should definitely send it our way!

Yes! We were surprised that we didn't even have enough videos to fill the category! Although comedy is usually not a very "popular" category, we usually at least have over 6.
