What can I enter?
The allowable footage types include but not limited to the following:
* Video games(both Japanese and Non-Japanese)
* Live Action
* Non-Japanese Cartoons(Avatar The Last Airbender/Korra, My Little Pony, ect…)
Each person is only allowed to send in 2 videos. If your part of a MEP you wish to send and already hit the 2 video limit please message me and we’ll discuss from there. Also all videos submitted in previous contest are not allowed. While not a rule if your video has won more then 3 major awards in other VAT Contest before entering Anime Crossroads 2017 I strongly suggest sending another video instead. This way we get to see more new content. However I’m not going to say you can’t enter if that the only video you want to enter.
