Heads up, guys! Due to some issues we've had getting the contest announced/publicized, the con chair has asked us to extended the submissionsdeadline to Friday, June 1st, 11:59PM CST.

This should give anyone who wasn't aware of the contest a little extra time to put together a submission.

What a contest this was!

Sean.PNG wins Best Action using a Yu-Gi-Oh movie. That's a sentence I never thought I'd say.
Maboroshi Studio gets his first win of Season 4 with an anime that looks like it would scare the everloving pants off me.
ZephyrStar makes his own freaking animation and merges it with existing anime to create a fantastic video.
and DopplerDo gets Honorable Mention and an unsurpassed fifth video going to the Nationals, beating the record of 4 set by Nicolio1313 way back in Season 1. If we end up instituting a rule next year limiting the number of wins a single editor can have in one season, we're going to call it "The Doppler Rule." \o/

Be sure to check out all these videos and more at http://amvleague.com/akon2018.html - and remember that if your video didn't qualify here, you CAN still resubmit it to another event! We had a lot of really good videos that just didn't score high enough in this very crowded field, and we'd love to see them shown at another con!

I'll be sending out gift cards probably tomorrow or Thursday, depending when I can get up to the bank and deposit the money A-Kon gave us. ^^

I am so happy to be mentioned honorably here. I'm not sure how the list of entries just gets stronger and more competitive each time. I freaking love the league :D.

It would really bum me out if the result of working (mind-bendingly) hard to make a flurry of videos I felt passionate about this year kept someone else from getting multiple awards in the future, especially if someone sweeps only once every few years. If someone was trolling with one single video, I could see a limit being appropriate but considering every video just gets one shot, it wouldn't seem fair to truncate someone's possible entries just because I had a good half year in the league.

Just adding my two cents in case you're actually serious about making my hard work the reason to limit others' wins in the future.

Hey AMV fans.

Go here real quick: http://amvleague.com/akon2018test.html

At the bottom of that page is a poll; I want as many people as possible to vote in that poll.

It's not going to result in an award or affect this year's Nationals in any way; it's just that next year we're going to be experimenting with the possibility of adding some Fan Voting to our AMV League events and I want to make sure that the polling method works.

Thanks everyone. :D
