Hello everyone. I participated in this contest last year and I was wondering why it was not listed or promoted over here or such forums considering how big this event is. So I'm just listing the details of the contest from the site as is. If you need to ask any questions or have any queries related to this contest, contact annika at firstname.lastname@example.org (You'll get response within 1-3 days).
Topics for 2018
You can submit amvs only in the following categories. (From what I can see, there is no freshness rule) So I guess you can submit any of your previous work that seem to fit these categories but it's better to check with coordinator before submitting.
DoKomi is celebrating its 10th anniversary. We also want to celebrate this occasion in our AMVs. Therefore, the following motive should be taken up in your AMV: The protagonists of the AMV are celebrating a party. For example, this can be represented by dance scenes, birthday parties, confetti cannons, dancing on the tables, etc.
Make us really hungry with great AMVs, in which you primarily show how things are cooked, eaten or prepared dishes, which make our mouths water.
Whether computer, console or board games: Show us how your protagonists do some gaming. This is primarily about the process of playing, not the game itself.
We don't mean AMVs which consist predominantly of "ingame scenes", e.g. Sword Art Online, .hack // Sign.
The deadline is 22nd of April 2018! The winners will be announced at the closing ceremony at DoKomi on 20th of May 2018!

The three best AMVs for each theme will recive material prizes with a total value of 450 €. The prizes are situated by our sponsors.
(I don't know if total value is considering all 9 winners but you will get merchandise and stuff like tshirt, pendant, etc. but it can vary)
The above image is from last year's closing ceremonies. This contest might be different from the ones we usually participate in meaning there are no finalists mentioned, the judging process might be different, not sure if all videos are screened but 1st place video in each category is shown at closing ceremonies. If you are not attending the con, you might have to keep an eye on its official website for the result update but I'll see if I can post it here by then.
