Sure thing! We will be posting the initial numbers in the morning since everyone has until Midnight tonight. By initial numbers I mean that sometimes we may move an entry into a different category when we do the Judge's Panel depending on if there is an over all consensus.

Alright ladies and gents,
After processing every entry and making sure that they all worked we have this year's numbers. We had a smaller turn out than years past, yet higher percentage of international entries this year as well.

We have processed a total of 52 entries this year:
Action: 21
Comedy: 08
Drama: 16
Experimental: 5

Exhibition: 2

While the total is currently final, the amount in each category may change as some entries may be re-categorized during the Judges Panel. I hope this will help you out if you are planning a strategy for next year. We'll continue to do this each year if you want us too. Hope it helps. ;D

Huh! That's a bit of a drop from the estimate you posted, yeah. I find it helpful to know all this, thanks. If you don't mind me asking, is it normal for entry #s to fluctuate like this? Could it partially be due to the glitch when posting the contest on AMVs.org? Thanks for all you do!

The entries do tend to fluctuate from year to year, but I think the glitch we had on AMV.org may have been a big factor. This hasn't been the lowest number in recent years, but no where near the almost 100 entries we had a few years ago.

So I guess not many people submit just for exhibition? I am also curious now as to how many AMV's will be shown in competition. Will you guys show more AMV's in the categories with more submissions? Or is there an even spread between each category. Either way, I can't complain about the lower number of submissions, just means my chances are better. Keeping my fingers crossed.

The overall rule is time and quality.
We have a certain amount of time that we can make the show. Categories with more entries tend to have more "high end" submissions so we try to accommodate for that, however, we do try to have at least 5 videos per category, then we add on more in that category while watching the overall length of the show. This can change if say some of the higher scoring entries are much longer. In that case we may only add 1 or two extra beyond the 5 minimum, versus having enough time to add a higher number of shorter entries.

I hope this sheds some light on why we tend to have longer run times for Action and Drama. These are the most popular submissions. Sometimes we put EVERYTHING we get into Comedy or Experimental and still barely hit the 5 entry mark. I know that Comedy is the most difficult to do, but if done right, it's one of the main things that the audience tells us they're looking forward to. Ironically, we tend to get the fewest entries for that each year. The audience always say they want more Comedy. Perhaps by creating awareness in the AMV community, we can give them what they want, right? I hope so. This is why we have been trying to show everyone some of what goes into making the show.  ;D

Forgot to mention, we don't get very many exhibition videos each year. Generally less than 3 or not at all. We tend to give priority to the contest editors first, so many times the exhibition submissions to make it to the main show. That's not to say that they can't be shown at Con though.

Out of curiosity, how soon will we know if our video has made it in?

Woohoo! Thanks for keeping us so much in the loop this year. Here's an extra question: is there any chance that the judges' totals for our vids might be available to us after the con? (At least of our own videos, asking for all to be posted is a bit much I know.) If it's too much trouble I get it but I've always personally wondered about how my vids have fared.

Sure thing. Send us a request via email or in person after the show and we can certainly do that for you.

They are on schedule. We just had the Judge's Panel on Sunday and are now putting together the show schedule. Once that is done, we will be emailing everyone. For those of you worried about deleting your spam folders... no worries. We're sending them all out tomorrow. You should expect your emails by tomorrow evening at the latest.  ;D
