    Hello, all! Once again, the Anime Detour anime convention, taking place in Minneapolis, MN, is holding its annual AMV contest.

    A complete list of rules and the entry form are available here -

    Entries are due by March 1st.

    Here's some general info about the contest:

    We will accept entries from all over the world, but can only award/mail physical prizes to those within the United States. Entries from outside the US will be considered exhibition entries (but we do enjoy watching them!).

    We are an all-ages convention, so please pay special mind to the content of your AMV entry. Entries with extreme violence, depictions of sexual acts, or which use songs with strong language/swearing will be disqualified. If you have specific questions regarding the appropriateness of your entry, please contact the contest coordinator ahead of time.

    Video length (including credits bumpers) cannot exceed 5 minutes. NO EXCEPTIONS. This is to ensure that we can include as many entries as possible, as we have a limited time to play the contest proper.

    If you have any other questions or need clarification on anything, feel free to reply to this topic, direct message me here, or email me at:
