Thank you for your interest in Hamacon 10 Anime Music Video contest!

Please read all the contest rules before submitting your AMV. Our goal is to fit as many AMVs in our allowed time frame as possible. Hamacon attendees who come to the AMV contest will be allowed to vote for their favorite AMV in all categories. Thus compliance of the rules is necessary or your AMV will be subject for disqualification with no expectations. The AMV Director reserves the right to reassign videos to other categories if need be. Not all AMVs will be able to be shown, so it is up to the AMV Director’s discretion to choose which will be shown.

AMVs will be shown Friday, and the winners of the contest will be announced during intermission of the Cosplay Contest on Saturday evening.

If you have any questions feel free to email the AMV Director at
