AMV Contest


AMVs. Anime Music Videos. You take some anime, smoosh it with some music, boom. You've got a video. An ANIME MUSIC VIDEO!

And we've got a contest for doing that. Isn't the world crazy? Here's the rules:


AMVs submitted for the contest must abide by the following rules:

  • AMVs may not exceed 3 minutes and 45 seconds in length.
  • AMVs must be kept at a maximum of PG-13. This means no hentai, excessively foul language, or excess gore.
  • All AMVs must be at least 75% set to music. The only exceptions to this rule are AMVs in the Parody and Comedy categories.
  • Please remove any credits before or after the AMV.
  • You may enter one AMV per category, meaning you can submit up to a total of six AMVs, provided they are in separate categories.
  • AMVs will be judged by the audience for a winner in each category.
  • You MUST be present at the end of the AMV Contest to claim your prize.
  • All AMVs must be received by Sunday, January 22nd, 2017 at 11:59pm CST!

    The AMVs that melt our hearts and celebrate the relationships between our favorite anime characters.

    These AMVs are intense and keep us on the edge of our seats. If you really want us to feel for the story, your AMV goes here!
  • Parody
    AMVs that parody another source. Movie trailers, commercials, etc!
  • Fun/Other
    AMVs that are just fun or don't seem to belong anywhere else. A dance AMV would be a good example!
