AMV Contest

Updated Nov 9, 2022 @ 2:53 pm

Prepare for a competition across time as we invite you all to join us for the return of the Anime Los Angeles AMV Contest!

Anime Music Videos, or AMVs, are short fan-made music videos that pay homage to many of our favorite shows. Whether you are a renowned award winning talent or just starting out with your first ever project, our event welcomes creators of all skills and experiences. With some persistence, a desire to create, and admittedly a bit of luck, you just might see your work compete on the main stage!

Of course, if you prefer to sit back and enjoy an evening of awesome videos, we have you covered too! Our judges spend many weeks collectively deciding the best of the many submissions we receive in order to present to you a night of unique, one-of-a-kind entertainment that can only be seen at ALA! Best of all, YOU the audience get to decide the winners of each of the main categories, as well as the coveted Audience Choice award granted only to the best of the best.

The AMV Contest will take place on Thursday in Main Events, seating beginning at 7:30pm. Winners will be announced on Sunday, also in Main Events.

Please be sure to review all of the rules below before submitting your videos, and send any questions you have to

We can’t wait to see you’re amazing creations this year. Take care, and good luck!
