AMV Contest


The AMV Contest will be held on Saturday at 3:00 PM in the 1st Floor Ballroom.

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 21st, 2018 at 11:59pm CST!


  • Action 
    AMVs that get our blood pumping. Running, gunning, and explosions, baby!
  • Comedy 
    AMVs that make us laugh! This category can include AMVs set to funny songs or comedian standup.
  • Romance 
    The AMVs that melt our hearts and celebrate the relationships between our favorite anime characters.
  • Drama 
    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!


In addition to the rules above, please abide by the following:

  •  If you are submitting multiple AMVs, please submit them separately.
  •  We have provided a space for you to link your AMV ( or work well)
  •  Do NOT link YouTube videos. We will not download these. Please use an upload site such as the ones listed above.
