FMV (Fandom Music Video) Contest!

Are you super proud of an AMV that you’ve made, or a GMV or how about a cool music video with any fandom? Did you ever want to make one? Well now is your chance!   Con-G: Geeks@Home 2022 is proudly hosting an FMV contest this year! We will also be running the showcase if you’d like to share your work but not compete it or you want to submit multiple FMVs.

The contest will be live streamed on Friday February 18th at 7:00 PM EST on Twitch and available to watch all weekend long on our YouTube after it airs.

FMV registration will open December 15th, 2021 and run until February 6th, 2022 at 12:00 am (midnight) EST. 

Entry forms can be found here (when available).

The cost to enter is $5 for the Contest (the showcase is free to enter).

An email will be sent with payment information after we receive your entry. This will go towards mailing prizes to the winners and the remainder will be given as a donation to fund raise for a good cause (charity TBA).

“Memories of Con-G” Video Contest

Create a video that reminds/inspires/shows etc that reminds you about why you love Con-G! Funny, serious, live footage, promos or AMVs – we’d love to see it all.

We have over the years been blown away with the video coverage of Con-G so we wanted to recognize those people and maybe inspire more. Whats better than watching a video to remind you about something you’ve had fun doing, right?

Ok the stuff you want to know!
GRAND PRIZE IS $100 CASH (yes that is one hundred dollars to be given to the winner at Con-G)
We will have 2 runner up spots that will win a free Con-G t-shirt.

Details:
Video must be under 4 minutes (any length under is great – a great skit or amv can be 30 seconds)
Due date to submit your entry is FEBRUARY 15th, 2014 (upload it somewhere online and give us the link)

Winners will be announced FEBRUARY 17th, 2014
The winning video, runner up and selected videos will be shown at Con-G!

And because we’re a silly bunch here at Con-G we decided to do a video to give as an example :)
