Hi everyone! This post is to let you know that we are open for entries for the AnimeNEXT 2016 Animé Music Video (AMV) Contest. Being the largest independently-run anime convention in the New Jersey/New York metro area (14,500 attendees in 2015), AnimeNEXT will be held this year at the Atlantic City Convention Center in Atlantic City, NJ, for the weekend of June 10-12, 2016.
Contest Rules -- Entry Form
Please be sure to read the rules in their entirety. In particular, the maximum file size is now down to 300 MB (unless using FTP), and the preferred resolution is 1280x720.
Please also make sure that your e-mail is set up to allow messages from firstname.lastname@example.org without sending them to junk, to make sure that you receive the entry confirmation e-mail and any others.
Entries must be completely received by the end of APRIL 30. The form will stop accepting entries at midnight Eastern time -- no extensions will be forthcoming!
Here's some more reasons to enter our contest:
- We will ship certificates and prizes to the winners (even internationally) if they cannot make it to the show.
- Medals for the winners, like last year.
- All valid entries received on time (unless disqualified) WILL be shown at the convention, even if they do not make finals.
- No maximum video length. Bring on the prog rock, classical, whatever!
- The categories are not set in advance. If we have enough good videos in a genre, there will be an award for it. So send us your horror, your trailers, your upbeat, etc.!
