Okay, can someone post the "Otakon AMV is that awesome" screen? I didn't manage to take a picture of it. Also, it'd be great if someone uploaded the contest intro video ("Twilight" by E.L.O). Somehow I wasn't expecting the DC Convention Center... the Baltimore version was still in my head when all of a sudden the roads weren't the same. Lol. Great to see the updates.
With that being said, I've written down some of the winners. So... reporting in...

Missing: Best Overflow (really good, I just didn't write it down. It was Persona 5 set to a French song), and Iron Editor (I missed it this year
). If anyone would like to report that, it'd be nice.
Dragontamer's Shoutouts: Romance Category was incredibly
strong this year, probably the strongest overall category IMO. I didn't get to watch much Overflow this year, but I want to shoutout the "I'm not a Loser" video set to Yamcha from Dragonball. Which was a cool concept.
