Cool, I made it! *skipping dance of happiness* But ANext '06 is blocked out here at the .Org as far as listing contest participation. Besides wanting to add my vid, I want to see what's playing this year. (Editors are still fans first, right?)

Sorry, no. The deadline has passed, and as the convention is this coming weekend, the final contestants have been announced, and the contest itself has been compiled. Start crackin' for 2007! :)

Yooooosh~. Here we go with the full information on the contest.

The contest was played five times throughout the entire convention (Friday back-to-back 9 am & 11 am in Main Events, 6 pm in Panel 1 immediately following the AMV panel; Saturday 9 am in Main Events; Sunday 9 am in Main Events). Ballots were due Saturday by 5:00 pm. We had a total of twenty-four videos in the contest. The videos were separated into four categories: Trailer/Parody, Action, Drama, and Comedy (three, six, ten, and five videos, respectively). At the end of the contest, a recap was played, which was basically a slide-show collection of all of the title cards and a uniquely identifying screen shot from the video, one after another. Each attendee could pick their single favorite video in each of the four categories; this would decide the four popular vote winners. After the ballots were counted, the judges (myself and Meri) selected one other video that we felt set itself apart from the other videos in some kind of way (with both technical and artistic merits).

All five winning videos were played during the awards ceremony to a packed main events room, which took place Saturday evening during the judges' deliberation for the cosplay awards.

So here's the full list of videos! Links to their respective entries on "the org" are provided where available.

So there we go! I think that's pretty much everything I can think of. If you have any further comments, questions, or suggestions about the contest, feel free to let me know.

It is the decision of the individual editor (or editors) to make their own videos available for download online. It is *not* the decision of the contest coordinators or any other AnimeNEXT staff.

Big props to all the tech and general convention crew that helped out during all of the showings. Thanks, everyone, and we'll see you all again next year! *collapses*

yeah cograts to all winners :P
Even if the morrow is barren of promises, nothing shall forstall my return.

To become the dew that quenches the land, To spare the sands, the seas, the skies, I offer thee this silent sacrifice.
