Anime Music and Parody Video Contest

Time To Be Decided

Let the video producer inside show off at this fan favorite event. Fans will compete for great prizes by submitting their amateur music and parody videos for judging by other members.

Categories and Judging

Videos will be judged in three categories:

Best Comedy
Best Dramatic
Best Action


- All entries must be received by Thursday, August 16th. No exceptions!
- Your videos must be submitted on one of the following formats: directly emailed to, a link to download your video emailed to or a CD/DVD mailed to the mailing address below. Please include a notation of which codecs you used when creating the video. All other formats must be specifically approved by the contest coordinator prior to submission otherwise your entry will be disqualified. (Note: 4shared and Mediafire are common delivery methods)
- All entries must be CLEARLY labeled with your REAL name, email address, and phone number. (We will contact you to let you know we received your submission)
- Only three entries per person/group may be entered in the contest. If the submitted media/tape contains more than three videos, the LABEL must CLEARLY indicate which videos are to be entered in the contest. If we can't figure it out, none of them will be entered!
- Each video must be at least 30 seconds long and no longer than 7 minutes. These limits will be strictly enforced. This time limit does not include any opening titles or description text (which we may or may not include in the contest showing).
- Animefest reserves the right to show any submitted video(s) at any Animefest sponsored event until the end of time. Likewise, Animefest reserves the right to provide links to submitted vidoes or host them on our website and the AnimefestTV Youtube page. The creators will always be given credit for their work.
- All tapes/media entered become the property of Animefest and will not be returned.
- You do not have to attend to enter the contest to win. However, all winning persons/groups will receive an award plaque, but only members that attend the award ceremony will be eligible for prizes.
- Only videos produced within the past two years are eligible.
- Videos cannot include subtitles from any licensed release. You're welcome to add your own subtitles or dubbing as you see fit.
- Videos and their music/dubbing must be suitable for viewing by a family audience. Adult content will not be permitted.
- Although it is highly unlikely if you adhere to all of the above rules, Animefest reserves the right to disqualify any video for any reason.
