Postby Vlad G Pohnert » Sun Mar 11, 2018 9:12 pm


This year Animethon is celebrating it's 25th Anniversary and has moved location to the Edmonton Shaw Conference Center. This means an exciting bigger and brand new Main Events room where the contest will be held!

DEADLINE: Sunday, June 17, 2018

QUICK RULES SUMMARY (Full set of rules can be found HERE):

AMV fixed categories have been eliminated and replaced with a larger number of elements that make up the essence of the AMV (i.e. Dramatic, Artistic, Parody, Trailer, Effect Oriented, etc.) found on the entry form. Once all entries have be received after the deadline, all the selected elements will be tabulated and all accepted entries will be grouped into the top six most common categories for judging.
