The Matsuricon VES AMV Contest is now open for submissions. What is Matsuricon? We are a annual Japanese pop-culture convention based out of Columbus, OH, USA and will be to be held on August 16 – 18 of this year. What is VES? VES stands for Video Entertainment Showcase. We have a specialized room at Matsuricon called the VES room. And in this room, we show AMVs, MMVs, GMVs, MADs and any other sub-genre of AMVs that we can think of. Our contest is scheduled to be held on August 17th, and on the same day we’ll announce the winners. But of course, we need videos to compete in the contest. So, we’re inviting all editors to submit their videos to our contest. Registration ends on July 15th. All types of video sources are welcome (though we know the bulk will be anime). And we even have an 18+ contest as well.
