Anime Boston 2018 AMV Contest - Finalists!

Post by LantisEscudo » Fri Dec 01, 2017 8:13 pm

Hello everyone,

I'm pleased to announce that the 2018 Anime Boston AMV Contest is open!

The rules are here and the FAQ is here.

There are only a few minor changes from last year:
Deadline is March 2, 2018
Maximum video length has been reduced from 6 minutes to 5 minutes

I'm astounded every year with the videos that we get submitted, and I can't wait to see what we get this year.

Good luck to everyone, and get submitting!

Re: Anime Boston 2018 AMV Contest is open for submissions! Two Weeks Left! Deadline 3/2!

Hi, everyone,

Just a reminder, there's less than two weeks left until the submission deadline, so please get your entries in soon!

We've got a lot of great entries so far, but the numbers in the Trailer/Commercial and Fun/Comedy categories are still a bit low, so we'd love to see more there.

Thanks to everyone who's submitted so far!

Re: Anime Boston 2018 AMV Contest is open for submissions! Last Day to Enter! Deadline 3/2!

Post by LantisEscudo » Thu Mar 01, 2018 10:20 pm

Hi, everyone.

This is one last reminder that there is only a little over 24 hours left to submit! Please get your entries in as soon as possible!

Also, a quick note, I'm directly in the path of the winter storm bearing down on New England tomorrow, so I may lose power. In that case, I will not be able to send confirmation emails until it's back up, but I will get them out to you as soon as possible. I've been luck in past storms, so crossed fingers. The form WILL CLOSE ON TIME, as it's an automated process. If you may also be in danger of losing power, please upload earlier in the day so you don't miss your chance to submit!

Thank you to everyone who's submitted so far, it's looking like it'll be a fantastic contest and a very difficult selection process for the finalists.

Hey again, everyone!

Submissions to the AMV Contest are now closed, and we had another really huge year.

We received over 200 submission forms, and about 175 videos will be competing after duplicates and DQed entries are removed.

Finalists will be notified in about a week and a half, and we'll post the list of finalist editors at that time (just the editors, not their videos).

Thank you to everyone who submitted to the contest, and good luck to all of our entrants!

Can anyone tell me what anime the winner of the action AMV is from? I know the title was Up in Flames but I missed what it was called and it looked awesome.

Sure! The anime is Flip Flappers. The full list is now posted, so if you're wondering what anything else was, you can check that thread.
