Aw, thank you! I submitted to Upbeat, so it may have been bumped out based on strong Upbeat videos.

To #2, I think it's quite possible - I'd like to put some extra polish on it, as there are a few parts that definitely show the rushing I had to do on it :sweat:

Oh yeah, this is probably a strong year for Upbeat, especially considering a number of videos in other categories that could easily also been in that category.

I am fairly sure that the top 2 hours of videos are taken regardless of category, rather than the top X videos in each category. But Vic could confirm or deny that.

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.

Be sure to watch the Romance Category as well. You really should be proud, the Romance Category was IMO the strongest this year.

EDIT: See the list from earlier in this thread. Its only missing your video. The first "Romance" video is Shin's "Sour Diesel". Currently #20.

Kinda late to the party (I thought I would be emailed if my vid made it to the finals so it totally went over my head lol) but congratulations to all finalists and winners!!! And a BIG thank you to everyone who voted for my entry! After washing out at three other contests, second place is more than I was hoping for! :DD
