Saturday Morning AMVs


Saturday Morning AMVs is Katsucon’s PG-rated AMV contest! We created this event to offer a more family-friendly alternative for our younger members to enjoy AMVs as well. Bring the kids, bring the grandparents – there’s plenty of fun to be had!

This is an all-ages AMV event geared toward children.

Saturday Morning AMV submissions for 2022 are open! Click on this link to submit.


1) This contest is rated PG. If the AMV doesn’t seem to fit in this category, the AMV Department will contact the entrant to inform them of the category it is most appropriate for. 

2) Please do not add bumpers or credits to your AMV.  

3) No audio may be taken from the original anime. 

4) No subtitles/fansubs are allowed unless you add them in yourself. 

5) AMVs with poor audio/video quality will be disqualified. This includes interlacing issues, audio distortions, etc. 

6) No visible studio trademarks may be included in your video submission. 

7) Length: Please keep AMV video submission under 5 minutes and 30 seconds total in length. Any submissions over this length will have to be really good to make the contest. 

8) Only three entries allowed per participant per contest. This means you may submit three AMVs in AMV Showdown, three in AMV NSFW, three in AMV Blender and three in AMV Saturday Morning. 

9) We will not tolerate or allow any plagiarism (defined as “the “wrongful appropriation” and “stealing and publication” of another author’s “language, thoughts, ideas, or expressions” and the representation of them as one’s own original work). Any submissions that are found to plagiarize someone else’s work or submission will be removed and the contestant will be contacted by Katsucon’s AMV Department. If the video submission is found to be plagiarized, you will not be allowed to participate in any future Katsucon AMV contests. 

10) In the interest of featuring fresh and exciting content in our AMV competitions we ask that you refrain from submitting AMVs that have won awards in three or more AMV competitions. 

11) All AMVs should be at least 75% Japanese animation or game footage. 

12) Please submit your final videos in the video formats listed below only. This will help us greatly with giving your video the proper amount of time for review and preparing it for the contest. Any videos that require us to edit or change settings will be disqualified.
