Hello everyone. My name is Erik Norelus {kireblue}, and I am pleased to inform you that Seishun-Con is now accepting submissions for its 2011 AMV contest. For those of you that know me as Momocon's AMV Assistant Director, feel free to submit your AMV Exhibition videos. The submission deadline will be @ 11:59pm on Monday, May 16, 2011; so here is you chance to win awesome prizes and bragging rights for an entire year. The rules and guidelines for the contest are as follows:

AMV Contest Rules and Guidelines

General:
All submissions must consist of at least 50% Japanese animation, anime-style video game cutscenes or anime-inspired stills to be accepted into the competition. Also, videos must be under 15 minutes in length

Entrants are are only allowed to submit one video to a category. Also, entrants are only allowed to submit to two of the five main categories, and a single video can not be submitted to more than one category.

Videos submitted that contain excessive violence. sex, mature or adult content will not be shown during main competition. However, depending on the number of "adult" submissions that we receive, there may be a "Mature Audiences Only" award. Entrants are only allowed to submit one video to this category, but since this category is not a part of the main competition, editors that submit to this category will still be able to submit to two of the five main categories.

All submissions must be in Seishun-con's possession by 11:59 pm (EST) on Monday, May 16, 2011. Attendance to Seishun-con is not required to enter the competition and will not improve your odds of winning. Prizes will be awarded to the top video in each category, and will then be mailed out to the winners that are not present at the convention. A photo ID will be required to claim a prize during the convention.

Categories:
The AMV contest is split into five main categories, and the "Mature Audiences Only" category. Entrants are allowed to select the best fit category for each of their submissions, but if our judges strongly disagree with the genre of a submitted video, it may be moved to a better fitting category.
