It’s that time of the year again. Time to dust off those source DVDs, BluRay’s, and CDs and blend them together in your favorite NLE (Non-Linear Editor) in order to make an AMV to submit to Youmacon! Going on our 13th year The Fan Art Theater Competition at Youmacon is a yearly celebration of AMVs and other fan created videos as editors from around the world submit their works for chances at awesome prizes, unique awards, and of course the chance to have their videos played on the big screen in front of an audience at the convention itself. If you or someone you know makes AMVs or other kinds of fan created content (we accept all forms of footage, not just anime) then click the image above or forward this post on! We LOVE getting TONS of videos and can’t wait to see what ya’ll send us this year!
