Hey there guys! With our Top 5 Winter Seasonal AMV contest having wrapped up last week, it's now time for us to reveal the winner!

Interested in participating in the Top 5 and/or our themed Seasonal variant? Although we didn't get enough submissions this time around, there are up to five spots available every round (once per season & weekly over the summer!), and all five winners will be featured here on the homepage & earn a Top 5 pin -- as well as, sometimes, something extra for participants! So keep your eyes peeled for our Spring Seasonal when it comes around in a few months, and submit to our Portal anytime during the summer for a shot at victory!

The winner of our Winter Seasonal this year is...


Submitted by: @Sebax
Song: Far, Far by Yael Naim
Details: A sweet video with a relaxed sense of flow, I felt this matched the feel of the song quite well. A fitting valentine's day tribute, and the added drawings were a nice touch! This was an impressive first AMV.

Congratulations Sebax, you will be receiving a Top 5 pin if you haven't got one already -- and an extra prize for our Wonderland event which is due to begin soon!

Attention video editors: It's time for another round of our Top 5 Seasonal Spotlights! Read below to see what we have in store for our winter edition -- Word on the street is that the Queen of Hearts will be visiting us soon; could it be that she'll have some extra goodies in store for Top 5 competitors? Hmmm....

If you're new to Seasonals or need a refresher, here's how they work! It's simple: While during the summer we run the Top 5 as we have in the past, we take a break with periodic themed contests the rest of the year. Each season has its own competition with a corresponding theme for the editors to work with!

It's easy to participate! The contest works as follows:

  • Editors have two weeks from the time of this posting to make and submit a video that matches the given theme.
  • Post in this thread when you've completed your video (Unlike summer's Top 5, embedding on our Portal is not an automatic submission due to the specific nature of the contest -- simply posting a link in the thread is fine!)
  • We will take a week following that to judge the submissions.
  • The results will be posted the same way as the usual Top 5 on our homepage! As always, you can earn a Pin for placing.

We're looking forward to seeing your videos! If you have any questions, please contact a member of staff or post here. For this competition, normal Top 5 content & footage rules apply.

Our theme for winter this year is: Valentine's Day! As an added bonus, regardless of placing PARTICIPANTS IN THIS CONTEST WILL ALSO RECEIVE AN EXTRA PRIZE DURING THIS YEAR'S ANNUAL WONDERLAND EVENT, which is right around the corner!
You have until Sunday, March 1st to turn in your entries. Please post them in this thread!
(& Make sure to check out the home page on Sunday, March 8th when we reveal the winners!)

1. Kingdom Hearts: Guren No Yumiya

Kingdom Hearts: Guren No Yumiya

Submitted by: @Calxiyn
Song: Lullaby version of Guren No Yumiya by Amanda Lee
Details: I thought the emotive feel of this was brilliantly done, you chose a good theme to go with the beautiful song. One of my favourite things was your use of the footage that was simply text on a screen, it was incredibly effective. It may be a good idea to experiment with a few more effects to make certain parts of the AMV to fit more with the song.

This Week's Judge(s): Crowley (aka Cat~)

1. Hurt ; けが

Hurt ; けが

Submitted by: @FurySp4rk
Song: Hurt by Johnny Cash
Details: The timing was spot on, the transitions were simple but effective, your use of text was great. I also especially liked your story. It got a bit bright at times, but your overlays were well used and I was surprised to see this kind of song paired up with KH. Well done!
