Anime Music Videos


AMV Contest Submissions are open now through December 1st! The link to each contest’s submission form is on the contest page, linked in the sidebar.

Welcome to the homepage for Katsucon’s anime music video (AMV) competitions! Please join us at the convention to celebrate fan created videos across categories such as Action, Comedy, and Romance. Vote on your favorites and crown the winners with us at the Sunday award show!

We have three AMV competitions (Showdown, Saturday Morning, and NFSW) and a ‘Blender’ pre-show.

· AMV Showdown is our main event at Katsucon. It is a PG-13 rated contest which shows both Friday and Saturday afternoon.

· Saturday Morning AMVs is an all-ages, PG-rated contest which shows on (you guessed it!) Saturday morning. It features both new videos and some age-appropriate entries from the AMV Showdown.

· NSFW AMVs is our 18+ contest for the wild AMVs too raunchy for our other shows.

· Blender is a short AMV compilation that serves as a pre-show to the AMV Showdown. It is a great place for first-time editors to submit a short clip to show their stuff and for experienced editors to showcase ideas too short for a full AMV. Clips can be from 15 seconds to a minute long.

We welcome participants of all skill level to enter the AMV contests! Please see the rules pages linked to the right to find an overview of how to submit. For any questions, please check out our FAQ. Please contact us at [email protected] if you have a question not answered in the FAQ.
