    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!

    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!
  3. Just in case the email I sent doesn't get through. If we were to have filled out a entry form and then it gave a message saying it would email the details to send/upload your video file... and we never got that... would it be possible to get it sent out again?
    Video would have been called: Letter From A Friend Using the song "Caught in the Storm" by Our Last Night.
    Kind of been waiting for a few weeks and it just never ended up in my inbox. Didn't see anything in my spam either.

    Sorry I didn't see this post earlier, but I responded to your email a few days ago and saw that you uploaded successfully. Thanks for submitting!

    For everyone else, there's less than a week to go, so please get your entries in soon. Trailer/Commercial and Fun/Comedy in particular still need entries.

    Thank you to everyone who's already submitted, and best of luck to everyone in the contest.

    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.

    Hi, everyone!

    Submissions to the main contest have closed, and we received more than 200 submission forms (about 175 will compete after duplicates/DQs were removed).

    In case you missed it on the contest rules page, the Hentai AMV Contest is back again this year, and we need entries.

    The deadline is March 17th, and you can enter up to two entries (as long as they're under two years old).

    Thanks to everyone who submitted to the main contest, and anyone with Hentai entries, please get them in!

    Hello everyone!

    First off, thank you to everyone who submitted a video to Anime Boston 2018's AMV Contest. We received 208 entries this year, 175 of them made it through DQ checking to the prescreening.

    Secondly, if you will be attending the convention, there is a traditional unofficial editor meetup for dinner on Thursday evening. All editors are welcome, and you can find more information on the Anime Boston forums:

    And thirdly, the finalists for the AMV Contest at Anime Boston 2018 have been selected and notifications have gone out! If your video was not selected as a finalist, you can catch it on the big screen during the Overflow showings.

    The Overflow videos will be shown on Sunday 9AM-3PM in Room 312 of the Hynes. We will also be showing themed blocks and other fan-generated work all weekend, so stop in to check it out!

    So,without further ado, in alphabetical order, the finalists are:

    Arielle Otsuka
    Dragon Girl Sam
    Gina Nelson
    KeiichiFace (Tsunderbird Studio)
    Kireblue & Mycathatesyou
    Maboroshi Studio
    Mica Holmes
    MycathatesyouAMV & King Redeem
    PaNTSU oF d00m
    Paul Geromini
    Studio Hawk
    Yue Li

    If your name is on this list and you have not received a notification email, let me know and I can resend it.

    I'd also like to include another request for Hentai AMVs for the HAMV Contest, which closes on Saturday! We've only got five entries so far, and we need at least seven to hold the contest.

    Congratulations to all of the finalists, and thank you again to everyone who submitted.
