PostSubject: G-AMV 2014   Wed Nov 27, 2013 7:30 am

G-Anime is proud to announce its upcoming AMV contest (Anime Music Video). AMVs are videos created by amateur based on a chosen song and Japanimation scenes. It’s a way of redrawing anime and music in the way a creator would like and this contest is a great opportunity to share this wonderful passion among otakus.

- The AMV contest is open to all except for judges and the con staff.
- Each participant can only send one AMV/GMV/M@D per category. A maximum of 2 AMVs can be sent per participant.

I sent my video in PBE and I take it, you are the judge by the email?
however I forgot to send the AMV title which is " Fear Avenged ".
and I have no experience in encoding what so ever so I have sent a 200mb MP4. if it is not acceptable I understand but I thought it was worth a shot.
