2019 VCA Updates, Questions & Feedback Thread

Q: What are the VCAs (Viewer Choice Awards)?

The AnimeMusicVideos.org Viewers Choice Awards is an annual opportunity to recognize and acknowledge the videos that stand out above and beyond the rest. It is a way for everyone who enjoys anime music videos here to say “Thank you” to the ones who went out of their way to put that extra effort of creating a video that is really exceptional. And so every year, we let members vote on what videos they thought were the very best from the previous year. There are awards for Best Action, Editor of the Year, Best MEP, and quite a few more! If you want to see what has won in previous years you can go here and click through the years!
Hello everyone. It's that time again! The 2019 A-M-V.org Viewers Choice Awards are about to begin! We're continuing and improving on the changes that we made last year, but if you need a refresher, here's a list of the major differences from previous VCAs.
  • *All videos that premiered online in 2018 are eligible to participate in the VCAs (even videos that aren't cataloged on A-M-V.org).

    *Voting will be conducted using google form verification, and will be open to both A-M-V.org members and non-members.

    *Nomination threads will be created for each category, and every eligible video that gets posted will be added to the corresponding voting pool for round 1. Note: If I feel that a nominated video fits into multiple categories, I'll add it to the voting pool for those categories as well.

    *Videos that use non Japanese animation will be allowed to participate in the VCAs as long as they adhere to "the spirit of Japanese animation". Moderators will serve as a final say as to what content qualifies, and so we won't be making a comprehensive list of what's allowed and what isn't. But RWBY, Samurai Jack, Avatar, Korra, and various Video Game Cinematics have already been approved.

    *The top 6-8 videos voted on by the community will automatically move on the the 2nd round of voting. Moderators will then select an additional 4-6 videos to be added as well.

    *After the 2nd round of voting, the top 4-6 videos voted on by the community will move on to the final round of voting.

Right now users are nominating videos. You have until February 27 to do so. Voting will come next after this round is done.

Just click any of the links above in Kireblue's post to be taken to the thread for that category. Check the list in the first post of that thread to see if your favorite AMV for that category has already been nominated by someone else. If it hasn't, just reply in that thread with a link to it on YouTube or here on the Org (if there's an entry for it) and it will be added to the list of nominations for that category.

The first round of voting on the nominated AMVs will then start on March 1.

To make searching for videos easier, I added links in the nomination threads that'll take you to filtered search pages for A-M-V.org and AMVNEWs.ru The link to the Org Catalog is also filtered by year |:>

Here's what it looks like for

We're working it.I finally finished cataloging all the winning videos that weren't available on the org, and so I hope to have it updated before the start if voting.

For the most past, we've pretty much just copied over the same categories every year. The org has never had a psychedelic category, but I plan to gauge interest in a few category changes after this year's VCAs.

On account of only maybe one video in "Lip Sync" not being from comedy or parody/trailers, I'd propose calling it the "Sloppy Seconds" category.

-But slightly more serious, since "Lip Sync" has always umbrellad every other variety of sync, it would be a service to remove the "Lip" from it. Some people get flustered over those things.

There is one complaint about the gooforms, but it's nothing you really have control over.
Let's say you vote incrementally and update your submitted form. A little dialog box appears at the bottom of the page (something irrelevant about using a link so others could update the form as well), the sort that doesn't go away at all and selecting redirects elsewhere. The problem is that the last element in the dropdown box with the catagories--submit--is obscured by the dang box. It can be rolled just below the message and--if you don't catch the last few pixels of the message's shadow--you can hit submit that way.

I just increased the height of the google form window, and so that should help remedy that problem :D
