What is Project Org Editor?
Project Org Editor is an online AMV tournament held over the course of 2 months. During that time, participants compete in week long preliminary rounds by creating AMVs that adhere to specific themes. Submitted videos are then judged on their portrayal of the theme, creativity, editing, and overall enjoyability. After the preliminaries, the top scoring participants will then compete in the finals to determine this year’s Project Org Editor champion.

What’s new for 2020?
For the 2020 competition, there will be 6 non-elimination preliminary rounds, and 1 single-elimination final round. Editors can participate in as many preliminaries as they like, but are encouraged to take breaks, and skip rounds as they see fit. To be eligible for the finals, editors will need to participate in at least 3 preliminary rounds, and their top 3 scores will be added together to form their total score. The 5 participants with the highest total scores will then compete in the final round to determine the winner.

Prizes
The competition is hosted on AnimeMusicVideos.org, and receives prize sponsorship from MomoCon. The 1st place winner will receive a $100 cash prize, the 2nd and 3rd place winners will receive $75 and $50 respectively, and $25 will be awarded to preliminary round videos that receive Judges’s Choice awards. The top 5 participants, and recipients of Judge's Choice awards will also receive a 4-day membership to MomoCon 2021.
