Anime Detour 2007: AMV and WTF Contests!

Post by RevolutionaryJo » Sat Dec 09, 2006 1:15 am

Just a reminder that Anime Detour will be having a couple AMV contests again this year.

AMV Contest
AD's original AMV contest open to members of all ages. Deadline for submissions will be March 2nd, 2007. Get your submissions in early if at all possible! Click here for contest rules.

Whiskey Tentacle Foxtrot
This contest is a search for the most painfully bad AMV in existence. It can be cliché. It can be cracktastic. It can be sappy. It can be in super fansub quality. It can be just plain wrong. But in the end, only one lucky vidder will be presented the WTF award. Please note, this will be an 18+ event!

We have a theme this year for WTF: Everything's Coming Up DDR!

Click here for WTF contest rules.

Happy vidding!

It falls on my birthday too, but there's really no better place to celebrate it than at con. ;)

Despite all that programming stuff I'm supposed to be in charge of...

My birthday is going to be on Friday, the 23rd.

Reminding me that I forgot to list the dates of the con in my original post!

AD happens March 23rd-25th 2007 at the Ramada Mall of America (Thunderbird) in Bloomington, MN

Oh and i noticed it says we cannot enter a video with "excessive violence".. I guess this means no bleach :cry:

I'm guessing that excessive violence goes along the same lines as what can be hosted on this site.

Looking forward to AD this year...
wanted to go last year but the plan fell through.
Lucky for me it happens over my spring break (when I'm back home in Minnesota)
With some luck I'll be able to submit a vid to the contest as well

Leave my head at home if you do, though. I hope I have something to send this year for both contests. Wish I could go, but I like the warm springs down here....

Bleach is just fine! "Excessive violence" means the same as the org's rules. If you're not sure about a scene or anything you're considering using, feel free to ask here, PM, or email me via the rules page. Always happy to answer questions.

Encouraging entries to the AMV contest comedy category this year! Last year I think WTF took a few too many away from the main contest and we only had two comedy entries.

Just discussing the lack of comedy entries with Judgey. I'll prolly make one.

Not this year, sorry! Need to make way for as many entries as possible in the AMV contest proper.

If you'd like to submit up to two for WTF though, I'd be willing to accept that. We would only show what we had time for, of course. So it depends on how many other entries we get.
