Hi All,

It’s with great sadness that I inform you all that Otafest has been postponed till next year due to the COVID-19 situation. So, what does this mean for the entries you have summited to the AMV Contest?

Since the announcement was made with still a over a week to go before the contest deadline, and we have received only about 1/3 of the total videos we usually get, we cancelling the contest for 2020.

HOWEVER, after discussions with Otafest, for next year we would relax the freshness rule and increase the amount of entries a creator or group can submit so that those who submitted into this year’s contest could resubmit their entries into the 2021 contest if they so desire. We have plenty of time to work out the exact details and will incorporate them into the next years contest overview and rules.
Thanks to everyone for supporting Otafest’s AMV Contest and can’t wait to see all your amazing videos you send to us next year!
