Once we received your video we will send your confirmation that we have received it. If you do not receive confirmation within one week of sending your video in, please email us again.

JUDGING
Judging for the AMV contest will consist of a panel of a minimum of three (3) to five (5) Tsukino-Con staff members. Of these members, the AMV Contest Coordinator must be in attendance. All categories must have a minimum of five (5) entries, no more than seven (7) entries will be permitted in a single category.

EXEMPTIONS
In the interest of fairness for all competitors, staff members are ineligible to submit videos for the contest. Should staff members wish to submit videos, it will only be granted exhibition status, to be played on the Tsukino-Con AMV Showcase.

AMV SMACKDOWN
AMVs that win contest awards will progress to the AMV Smackdown. Winning videos will compete head to head against winners in previous years to determine which winner is the current best in its respective categories. After audience voting, the winner of the head to head battle is crowned smackdown champion and will represent its winning category in Tsukino-Con’s AMV Smackdown 2020

Good afternoon everyone! I have to say that we had another fantastic year of AMVs that were submitted, with a grand total of 80 Videos submitted from over 10 countries. The final results showed us 37 finalists and several tight races that lead to two different category winners winning by a margin of either 8(Action) or 6(Fun/Upbeat) votes apiece! Which always makes for an exciting contest! Without any further ado, the winners from this years contest, as well as the AMV Smackdown winners are as follows:
