The organization, and the support from Discord to the users' questions.
Evilspider was very helpful
The opportunity of get feedback from other editors
As always, it's the passion with which users devote their time to creating unique videos for this competition that is the biggest reason I'm drawn in. So, by far, it is discovering new faces each year, but also being able to test my mettle against them.
the ability to nominate videos for categories and vote for finalists
we can share our works with different people whatever the countryies or languages.

I really like this contest, it's a lot of people from different countries participating and making a lot of works to enjoy, the new category nominating process was cool.
the voting system

он до сих пор проходит)
Good communication by the organizers, incredibly nice to the editors and helpful! <3 evil spider Sorry for being annoying tho haha
Vast amount of emotional entries.
We can vote and get comments.
Probably the amount of feedback you get from other editors. It's always fun to read all the comments.
I really like the judging process, and I think having contestants themselves nominate videos for categories is a good thing too. The site looks cool, the technical checks are fast, pleasant contest overall I think.
The new look of the site
The point, thats the viewers and the competitors opinion must be taken into consideration.
Excellent order and work of the staff
I like that it is the most international AMV contest. I also like the way the rankings are done unless people do it seriously and take their time.
WHAT DID YOU DISLIKE THE MOST IN OUR CONTEST?
They were some categories in the nominations that had missing videos. While others, had videos that had no relation with the category itself. It needs more work and supervision. The application to compress the video didn't work for me (file not found problem), even when I converted it to AVI, and moved it to the same folder, which left me no choice but to upload the video itself.
To have a overview with all the AMVs. Its kinda hard to remember every amv by its name. It would be easier to have some visualls of the amv (3screenshots) to see which amv if from the editor.
Not many entries
I think that the main ranking must be done by a jury too
Probably the limited window time to vote for each step? But not that much.
i really have no time to rank all the vedio.and its such a hard time
Отсутствие номинации хоррор
it was oky for me
The lack of clarity on who the judge committee is who decides finalists and how much their votes apply to the finals voting so that there's a clear understanding if the finals comes down to how friendly you are. Often 1st place is decided by who's best but 3rd-10th end up being how much people remember you and often that can be swayed simply by commenting. Also lack of Artofeel entry.
Some of the video schedule felt pretty weird, but that's just the nature of the contest I think. Also I would LOVE for it to be an option to watch the videos while voting. Also voting Top 15 before the categories feels kinda whacky. Changing this would it make easier as well.
The categorisation is a bit confusing. Especially the fact that not all allowed categories could actually be awarded. For example, trailer got it's own category, while horror didn't, despite having more entries.
There are way too many entries in many categories. We don't need 10-12 videos in categories like drama, action or concept. You could say it's better to have more than less, but there are videos that clearly have nothing to do being nominated in certain categories when compared to their opposition, so their inclusion is totally pointless. I think having anywhere from 6-8 nominees per category is much better.
Uploading the videos to youtube before the creator can, stealing all the individual views
All good, I know they take great care
The period of time people can submit their videos. For me it's too long. Also the lack of hype around it. It should have a promo.
WHAT WOULD YOU CHANGE IN RULES AND/OR ORDER OF OUR CONTEST TO MAKE IT BETTER?
Solve the bugs in the AMV application, and have more supervision on the categories
At bit more time between the Finalists and Finalvotings. 3Days is kinda tight, if you have a job, kids and stuff. I just sit for around 5 hours to work through it.
Add something to attract more editors
It would be nice if in addition to voting for the winners, a jury could also give points and make the ranking taking into account the two scores
I'd rather reduce the screening period by posting more videos each time and let the voting period be longer.
i mean its not easy to make a contest.just keep it moving forever

i dont know but i wish you good luck
If the finalists are going to have a vote they should have to have rated the other finalists videos so that there's at least the idea that your video was watched by the others at the very minimum before they start doing the placing order.
Look 2 question ^-^
It would have been good if the next participant knew when his video would be approximately scheduled to be published. )
Plz add a Translator cuz Google can't get 100% accurate (talking about russians comments) :''')
Nothing.I wish Akross will get more and more AMVs from great editors.
I guess just the categorisation, as mentioned above.
It'd be really cool if you allowed Western/anime-influenced sources into next year's contest.
No, all its OKAY :D
Maybe put judges. It may be paradoxal because I said the way the rankings are done but we can close your eyes : people ranking are good only if people do it seriously. Previous years has proven that people ranking is not agreed by a lot of people. It needs a promo, more visibility and a better communication. Good luck Akross staff!
