About Tora-Con:
- Tora-Con started out as nothing more than a simple cosplay contest hosted by the RIT Anime Club at the Rochester Institute of Technology in the spring of 2004. Since then, it has grown to be a two-day convention with 2,700 attendees!
- Tora-Con is an annual celebration of anime and Japanese culture. Some of our recurring events include the Cosplay Contest, Cosplay Chess show, Idol Singing Contest, concert, dance, and of course... the AMV Contest. :D
- Since our convention is located on a college campus (with college oversight), we strive to make our event as family-friendly as possible. Anime fans of all ages are welcome at Tora-Con!

Update on contest status:

It's been 3 weeks since we started accepting applications! Entering early usually means you will "beat the rush" and receive approval of your AMV faster. As time goes on, more people will begin applying and the approval process will slow down. Here's a look at how many videos have been accepted so far:

- 2 videos in the Action, Romance, and Drama categories respectively
- 1 video in the Trailer/Other category
- 0 videos in the Comedy/Parody and Upbeat categories.

Keep the AMVs coming! Thank you to anyone who has applied already!

Having trouble with the upload tool--it remains stuck on 0% for me.
If you are unable to upload your video using our upload page, but are able to otherwise upload it to GoogleDrive, DropBox, or a similar file sharing service, you can send the link to us at amv@toracon.org. Thank you for participating!

Here's another 3-week update: We are are just a little bit over 3 weeks away from the contest deadline and still pretty low on contestants. This is good news for editors, because it means better chances of becoming a finalist--so enter today!

- 6 videos in the ever-popular Drama category
- 4 videos in Action
- 3 videos in Upbeat
- 2 videos in Romance
- 1 video in the Trailer/Other category and Comedy/Parody categories

One of these shiny award plaques (plus a possible additional prize) might be yours!

I recently entered a video into your Drama category but I entered the wrong file name. The right name is Ashes by DivineAMV. Sorry for the inconvenience.

That's ok! We'll figure it out. Thank you for the heads up!

BTW editors--the AMV Contest Coordinator (that is, me) will be out of town for a few days. We appreciate your patience as approval of new submissions will be delayed a bit. Thanks!
