The 17th annual AnimeNEXT Animé Music Video Contest is open for entries! Still the only contest where the winners of the coveted AnimeNEXT Medals are decided by your fellow con-goers, the AMV Contest is ready and waiting for YOUR videos. As always, we’ll have prizes, big screens, hundreds of fans, and of course, excitement! And exclamation marks!
Please read through the rules completely before submitting your entry, especially as the rule on number of entries has changed since 2017!
Entries must be received by April 28. All valid, non-DQed entries will be shown at the convention, but there can be only two hours of finalists. Do you have what it takes?
Check out the cool intro video for our 2016 AMV Contest that our staff made.
