Thank you everyone who participated in last year’s SMASH! AMV Competition, including the voting for the People’s Choice Award! We have had another successful year all thanks to you guys!
The SMASH! Anime Music Video Competition and Showcase for 2019 is back, and it is better than ever! We made a couple of changes this year, so to find out more information, keep on reading this post (or refer to the links below):

When does the competition start: NOW!
When does the competition close: Sunday, 9 June, 2019 @ 11:59 p.m. (AEST/UTC+10) (Deadline for your timezone is at the end of this post)
Reviewing the entries we received last year, we decided to make some changes to the categories for this year's competition. To summarise, we have simplified the category names, while allowing for a broader range of genres to be included. We have also updated some of the category definitions (which you can find out more here).
In addition, we introduced the SMASH! AMV Showcase last year and as a result, we received a lot of entries for the showcase! We had huge crowds last year at both our competition and showcase screenings, including a lot of the audience coming up to us asking for more information about our entrants ( some of you probably noticed new fans keeping up to date with your work!). Since it was such a huge success last year, we decided to bring it back! For those who are not aware of the AMV Showcase - it is a non-competitive event where we allow you guys to submit whatever AMV you want to showcase to our Australian audience! We always end up getting large crowds at our screenings, so this might be something you are interested in if you want to gain exposure (without feeling the pressure of the competition).
To find out more information about the other changes to our competition/showcase for this year, please refer our website as well as the rules and submissions guidelines to ensure that you are fully aware of the requirements of your AMV before entering the AMV Competition and/or AMV Showcase
That’s all for now!
For those who choose to come back and enter our AMV Competition or Showcase for this year – welcome back!
For those who are new, your participation in the competition is greatly appreciated, and thus, we will do our best to showcase your amazing work!
If you have any questions or issues, please feel free to contact us either at email@example.com, through direct messaging on the forums, or simply feel free to leave a message on this thread and we will get back to you ASAP!
We are all looking forward to receiving your entry and your participation for this year. And if you do choose to participate, then we wish you all the best and GOOD LUCK~!
