Thank you once again to everyone who participated, whether you were part of the competition, the showcase, voted in the People's Choice Award or were sitting amongst the crowd during our screenings event!

The feedback helps us makes the event better for you guys, and whilst we are not perfect and know there are areas we could have improved on, I am sure we will tackle these areas and work towards making next year a fantastic year for you all!

The 12th Edition of the SMASH! Anime Music Video Competition is back! Plus debuting the SMASH! AMV Showcase!
Hi everyone! Anam the (assistant :roll: ) AMV Co-ordinator here!

Thank you everyone who participated in last year’s SMASH! AMV competition, including the voting for the People’s Choice Award! We have had another successful year all thanks to you guys!

The SMASH! AMV Competition has returned for it’s 12th edition in 2018. After seeing how the numerous change we underwent played out, we decided to keep some of them, whilst changing a few others. To find out more about what we have in store for you this year, then keep on reading this post! :D

To find out more information, click on the links below:
Main AMV Page
Rules and Submissions Guidelines
AMV Submission Form

When does the competition start: NOW!
When does the competition close: Sunday, 17 June, 2018 @ 11:59 p.m. (AEST/UTC+10) (Deadline for your timezone is at the end of this post)

--------

This year, we are introducing a new feature – the SMASH! AMV Showcase! What is it? Well, simply - it's a showcase for AMVs! However, the AMV Showcase is strictly not competitive (that is, you will not be eligible to compete for any of the AMV Competition awards). You guys might ask - but why bother entering if I don't have a chance to receive an award? Well, every year there has been an increasing amount of people attending our screenings, making it one of the most popular events at SMASH!. Our screenings event has received a lot of positive feedback, and we thought that we can utilise this popularity and allow other editors to gain exposure! Introducing the showcase allows you guys to submit AMVs (without feeling the pressure of the competition). It is also a great way to gain exposure, especially if you are a small editor! We always get questions about the various types of AMVs that are screened, so there is no doubt that you will gain some interest as well!

In addition, we have some other changes to the competition, including:
● You can now enter up to TWO (2) AMV submissions! – this number counts for BOTH the AMV competition and the AMV showcase.
● Reverting back to our old category system – we felt like the number of categories we provided was somewhat overwhelming and therefore we have decided to go back to our old category system (with some slight variations).

To find out more information about the other changes and additions our competition this year, please refer our main page as well as the rules and submissions guidelines to ensure that you are fully aware of the requirements of your AMV before entering the AMV Competition and/or AMV Showcase.

--------

That’s all for now!

For those who choose to come back and enter our AMV competition this year – welcome back!

For those who are new, your participation in the competition is greatly appreciated, and thus, we will do our best to showcase your amazing work!

If you have any questions or issues, please feel free to contact us either at amv@smash.org.au, through direct messaging on the forums, or simply feel free to leave a message on this thread and we will get back to you ASAP! :D (You may also PM Renato in this forum as well)

We are all looking forward to receiving your entry and your participation for this year. And if you do choose to participate, then we wish you Good Luck and all the best!

- Anam

I sent two in, but I'd like to make sure that this rule:
Rules wrote:10.
The AMV(s) entered into the SMASH! AMV Competition must be exclusive to the competition.
As such, it must not be shown on the internet until the results are revealed on the final day of the SMASH! convention, which is Sunday, 15 July 2018.
means that it's okay for the video to have been in convention finals, as long as it's not available online?

Yes that is correct! As long as it is not available on the internet until the end of July 15th. You will be able to publish your video online after this date 8-)

Yes you can! When filling out our form, there’s an option asking if you are going to submit another AMV - just say no for now and when you are ready to submit your second entry, you can fill that same form and we will do the rest for you :wink:

Hopefully that’s helpful :) (and it wasn’t a dumb question, we’re happy to answer any question :D)
