AnimeNEXT 2018 AMV Contest (Winners Posted!)

(UPDATE -- All the playlists in one place: Contest playlist and winners here - Panel playlist here - Sing-Along playlist here - Dance playlist here)





Hi everyone! It's that time of year again, and the AnimeNEXT AMV Contest is now officially open for entries. The entry form is live at http://www.aquilinestudios.org/ANEXT2018 with a link to the rules. PLEASE READ THE RULES, as the one regarding number of entries has changed!

If you haven't heard of us before, here's a few reasons you should consider entering:
  • Have your video shown at the longest-running (and, dare I say, best) animé convention in the NJ/NYC/Philly area!
  • Prizes!
  • MEDALS! Unique to 2018! (See the medals for 2017 - 2016 - 2015 - 2014)
  • We're on the Contest Calendar, so you can officially list us on your video's info, all green and bold and confirmed! (But remember, just adding us does NOT enter you into the contest: you must go through the link above!)
  • No fixed categories - we pick the finalists first without regard to categorization, then pick the categories to fit the finalists. So send in your artistic, your horror, your trailers, your epic space operas, etc.!
As always, e-mail will be our primary method of communication for matters related to the contest, but I will be checking this thread and my PMs here with fair regularity as well. I hardly ever check Facebook, so please don't rely on it.

The deadline is APRIL 28. For those of you unfamiliar with our contest, that's a HARD deadline: due to the logistics of the matter, there will be no extensions given, and I may not even post a one-week reminder. I can't wait to see what everyone has for this year!

Four weeks left! And according to my handy category summary, you know what we could really use more of? TRAILERS (and other parodies).

Yes, as we state in Rule #14 (Technical Specifications): "We recommend you include two seconds of silent black leader on the beginning and end of your video, as our hardware may not sync the first 1-2 seconds of the video file properly."

REMINDER! If your e-mail matches one of the following patterns, it means we received an entry form for you but not your video file(s) yet, and therefore your entry is NOT COMPLETE YET. You have ONE WEEK -- until end of Saturday, April 28 (Eastern time) -- to get the file(s) in. Please use the personalized link you received in your entry confirmation e-mail. If you need the e-mail re-sent, please e-mail us to let us know.

cne***@gmail.com
nyr***@yahoo.com
wha***@gmail.com
sem***@gmail.com
vip***@gmail.com
new***@hotmail.com
Afr***@yahoo.com
bfo***@gmail.com

Whereas, if your e-mail matches one of the FOLLOWING patterns, it means you sent in your personal information (Step 1) but no video information (Step 2), and therefore your entry is similarly NOT COMPLETE. If you still want to enter the contest, you have one week left!

Something I need to add for next year: a big honking note on the Step 3 (Another Video?) page saying "DO NOT CLOSE THIS PAGE WITHOUT CLICKING ONE OF THE TWO LINKS ABOVE. You will not receive a confirmation e-mail otherwise." There was some confusion about that, and the fact that it caused one entrant not to get a confirmation e-mail until the day of the deadline is my greatest regret about this year's contest so far.

7:00 - 9:00, Panel Room 303: AMV Contest Screening - Seating may begin 15-30 minutes prior to show time

SATURDAY
12:30 - 2:30, Panel Room 303: AMV Contest Screening - Seating may begin 15-30 minutes prior to show time
