AMV Contest


Let the video producer inside you show off at this fan favorite event. Fans will compete for awards and prizes by submitting their music and parody videos.

Videos will be judged in three categories:

Fun Videos
Dramatic Videos
Action Videos

* All entries must be received by July 19th. No exceptions!

* Your videos must be submitted by using the google form below. We will require a link to download your video. Various file sharing services are all commonly used, and we can use an download link. We do not accept entries that are just a link to a Youtube video.

* All entries must be CLEARLY labeled with your REAL name, email address, and phone number. If it is a group submission, please include the names and addresses of all members. (We will contact you to let you know we received your submission)

* Only three entries per person/group may be entered in the contest. If the submitted media contains more than three videos, the LABEL must CLEARLY indicate which videos are to be entered in the contest. If we can’t figure it out, none of them will be entered!

* Traditionally, the Animefest AMV contest has considered Romantic and Character Study videos to be in the Dramatic category, and Dance and Comedy videos to be in the Fun category. That being said, we appreciate when you tell us what category in which you prefer your video to be judged.

* Each video must be at least 30 seconds long and no longer than 6 minutes. These limits will be strictly enforced. If Queen can do Bohemian Rhapsody in 5 minutes and 55 seconds, you can make your video work in 6 minutes.

* Submission videos must be free of creator identification, including bumpers and credit rolls.

* AnimeFest reserves the right to show any submitted video(s) at any AnimeFest sponsored event until the end of time. Likewise, AnimeFest reserves the right to provide links to submitted videos or host them on our website and the AnimefestTV Youtube page. When hosting videos and links, the creators will always be given credit for their work.

* All media entered become the property of AnimeFest and will not be returned.

* You do not have to attend to enter the contest to win. This year, we will be giving Amazon electronic gift cards as rewards. The winners in each category will receive an electronic gift card worth $100, and the first runner up will receive a $50 electronic gift card.

* Only videos produced within the past two years are eligible.

* Videos cannot include subtitles from any licensed release. You’re welcome to add your own subtitles or dubbing as you see fit.

* Videos and their music/dubbing must be suitable for viewing by a family audience. Adult content will not be permitted.

* Although it is highly unlikely if you adhere to all of the above rules, AnimeFest reserves the right to disqualify any video for any reason.
