We must have enough submission to run an 18+ showcase, if enough aren’t submitted we will contact and announce cancellation.
These rules are for our 18+ showcase. This is not a contest, and there are no prizes–it’s still a fun time, though! If your AMV could be considered PG-13, you can enter our contest.
This is our space to show AMVs that are above PG-13; too violent, with too many swear words in the music, or with a bit more than brief nudity. Please keep in mind, however, that this is not for erotic AMVs. We’ll let you know if your submission crosses a line.
➧Action/Rhythm ➧Romance/Drama ➧Comedy/Humor
➧Submissions must be created by the person/group applying for the contest.
➧No more than 2 entries per person/group over both the PG-13 contest and the 18+ Showcase. For example, you can submit two videos for the contest, two for the showcase, or one for each.
➧Contestants must be 18 or older.
