FanimeCon 2012 AMV Contest Finalists and Winners (Updated)

Video Podcast SymbolOK, it appears as though the AMVs that were shown at this year’s FanimeCon have started hitting the org, so I figure now’s as good a time as any to post about it…

Overall there were some amazing videos this year, and aside from the usual technical glitches (c’mon people, just burn a frakkin’ DVD and take all this unpredictable computer software out of the equation!) the contest went off pretty well. Unfortunately we missed the actual contest on Friday evening; fortunately they had a repeat showing the following day.

Thanks to Gintoki23 on the FanimeCon forums for posting this list – for some reason we never received a ballot, and I couldn’t read the video names on the screen, so I couldn’t write them down during the showing.

NOTE: I’ll update this post periodically as I find more links to the videos, so please check back often. Also when I learn which videos were the winners in the various categories, I’ll update this post with that info. If any of the videos that I linked to are incorrect (I have been known to make mistakes on occasion ;-). Plus I missed a fair chunk of the AMV contest, and on top of that, my memory is a bit hazy…) please let me know. Also, if you know of a link to any of the videos that I don’t have yet, please let me know as well.

Update: 2012-05-31, late evening: I’ve found a few more. For some reason I never think to look at other places (i.e. Youtube), and when I started searching Youtube, I started finding some more.

Update 2012-06-03: Removed a few incorrect links, and updated with the winners. Also found a link to the official listing of videos. Thanks to foester, Gaki and Marin Jei El on the Fanime forums for the additional info/corrections.

Behold the list of AMV contest entrants in all its glory, below the cut.
