Большое количество участников, довольно много разных стилей, направлений. У всех какие-то свои подходы к выражению творческих идей.
i love that the contest still continues to run. i appreciate the dedication of the site's organizers to keep it going for almost 20 years and the generosity of the donators to contribute to it. i also appreciate that it accepted non-exclusive entries this year, otherwise i wouldn't be able to enter something. :'D also the discord server was a nice bonus.
I liked the ease with which you can participate and that they accept almost all AMV genre's.
Как всегда = СТАБИЛЬНОСТЬ.
Что можно добавить больше одного клипа! Хоть я и провалил это, но как говорили великие люди: "Я ЕЩЕ ВЕЛНУСЬ!" (Максим Доши).
Приличное количество хороших работ в этому году. Несмотря на общий спад.
Я первый раз на этом конкурсе, мне в принципе всё нравится
This year like the others I enjoyed a lot and it was fun to participate, it's not important to win for me the important thing is to get to good goals.
Decision to allow multiple entries
At AKROSS CON2022, there were many participants from other countries, and I was very happy to see an AMV that was not seen in Japan. Also, I was very happy to receive comments on my videos from AMV producers from other countries. There are many good AMVs in Japan, but I noticed that there are many wonderful AMVs in other countries, so I wanted to learn more by watching past AKROSS CON videos. I am happy that I was able to participate in this long-established competition and that I was able to meet many wonderful AMVs.
The most I like about this contest is the voting system. Thank you.

Entering a video, watching other contestants videos and waiting for the results.
First point: the acceptance of multiple entries this year. If you come to compare 2021 development vs 2022, you see that you got more entries than Last year. There's still a space for refining some other rules but it was nice to see people managing to make 3 videos exclusives for the contest. Personally didnt expect to see that in its first year. But as you can see, this generation of editors is young and has potential to do more in the future. Second point: It's always a pleasure to read comments from editors Such as: deviant, Iceberg, NIGHT, anejo, dumtumdum, and many others here I dont remember at the moment. Third point: the return of several editors. Seeing Back JustRukia, Be@st, VIDOK... it refreshed memories. Thanks, I consider an honor to compete with you guys. As a final: Takeshi, Fobos, Danny, BloodSlayer, Rika, Lee.... you guys are young and there's still a large way to go. I personally expect to see your development in the next years
Организация конкурса и его оформление.
After looking at the works of other authors, I begin to understand what I lack and what I should learn from them.
WHAT DID YOU DISLIKE THE MOST IN OUR CONTEST?
Наверно, достаточно большое количество разных по стилю клипов создаёт и сложности. Чтобы объективно оценить каждый из них нужно много времени. Чтобы понять идеи автора и оценить технические особенности, иногда требуется значительно больше, чем один просмотр. Но это замечание, скорее, просто констатация факта, а не претензия в отношении конкурса.
the lack of interest to it, but i don't think i can blame that on the organizers.
The waiting times. It is a bit tedious not having an exact date of the publication of the video that is sent.
Nothing in particular
Заливка не премьерных клипов на конкурс. Клипы, должны быть исключительно созданы на сам конкурс ( На то он и конкурс).
Авторы уже не те, что раньше. Вот раньше - это да! А теперь одни залётные фраера.
То, что он пересекался со многими другими конами, из-за чего зафейлил 3 клипа на кон, мде. Но да ладно, надеюсь доживем до 24-го :D
Не очень нравиться идея заливать больше 1 клипа от одного автора. Если насчет эксклюзивности еще можно понять, то заливать конкурс клипами сомнительного качества лишь бы были, как по мне не очень. Как-то это не в духе конкурса. Если такие решение помогут конкурсу дальше выживать то ладно.
I have nothing to dispute against the contest.
Not in particular. I would like to participate in this contest again in the future if there is an opportunity.
I don't like the fact that many people judge and rate videos subjectively, in a bad and unfair way for the authors, just because they're not friends with them. But that's something you can't control, I'm just stating it. Thank you.
The only point here is that we need the exclusivity rule Back. I feel this rule was added 'in case the multiple entries rule fails' but as we can see, the community has proven to be active enough to actually submit and fulfill the deadlines. Besides for younger editors it Will be discouraging to compete against videos made several time before the contest. Big Contest when its first started was known to accept even old entries since it was beginning. AKROSS Con has been known for being an exclusive contest. You dont want the contest to lose its prestige. Even the numbers this year proves that very few old videos were submitted and the rest of videos were made for the AKROSS Con. And another fact: there's no way to actually completely check if the video has participated online in another contest. What if a video has already won an award and its submitted here? It's true that some editors May mention that in the comments but even for experienced editors there's always the video that its the first time being watched
Clips that did not comply with the rules were accepted in the competition.
WHAT WOULD YOU CHANGE IN RULES AND/OR ORDER OF OUR CONTEST TO MAKE IT BETTER?
Я впервые участвую, так что пока не знаю, что можно было бы улучшить. Возможно, есть смысл определять больше жанров. Например, мой конкурсный клип - это альтернативная история. То есть, сюжет оригинального аниме, переработанный в стиле "на самом деле всё было совсем не так". Впрочем, думаю, что большинству авторов достаточно обычных жанров, а на всякие экзотические найдётся не много охотников.
don't really have any suggestions to this.
In particular, they accept videos with a "random genre" or "music" because I have seen many videos of the contestants who do not fall into one or two genres, but rather their video is a demonstration of making a video with the music they they like it and the genre, the theme they leave it aside and they stick more to the song.
I would not change anything I think the same formula has turned out well in these years so everything is perfect
Можно было бы убрать сомнительные номинации (лучший дизайн и прочую туфту) и добавить что-то более конкретное: Самый глубокомысленный или Самый тупорылый.
Сделайте не 3 клипа, а 4 на акк в следующем году, хехе)
Возможно анонимность до завершения конкурса.
No, I wouldn't change anything the rules are fine like that.
Contest needs more promotion I think
I think it's fine as it is now.
In my opinion, it should be made more clear of what source we're allowed to use. You make it look like we can only use anime style (not exclusively japanese) footage to participate, but at the same time I see you allow entries with footage which is not even close to anime (visually) style. Thank you.
Like I mentioned in dislike. Keep the prestige. AKROSS Con is very well known for being an exclusive contest. In the future, when we get a sponsor for the contest, it Will be nice to see some awards. Thats it if you want to see a comeback for several editors, specially the foreign ones. As for the veteran editors participating in the contest like us (I didnt forget about all of you people reading my comments) our cycle is almost complete and we Will like to see what young generations are capable to do.
People thought AC was going to end soon after the 2021 incident but you listened Spidey. As a consequence, the community responded. If you manage to refine the rules you Will even be able to return to AC stadistics 10 years ago. You know what I mean. And if people reading my comment dont understand my comment please check in contest tab, all the previous AC editions starting in 2009
