Yes! We did not have a contest last year and allow a bit more leeway due to that.

Sent in 2 and I wasn't sure about a third one that I wanted to submit. And it's a comedy AMV so it's eligible for a 3rd entry. Could I email you the link?

Go ahead and just use the form again, you can make a note under the entry details if you'd like to clarify anything about that submission. Thanks!
