Hi :), remember 2 weeks ago I told you about a small AMV, anime music video, contest that was going to be part of a comic-anime-fantasy convention here in  my city??

Well I sent 2 videos, my Smallvile-Justice League one and my Enchanted one. 

The contest was today, it was really long and stuff, I even made friends with another vidder, he only does anime but he's really good.

Anyway, they showed my vids and it was cool to watch it in a big screen and listen to comments about it, in a strange way my videos where the only ones with live action, all the others where made from japanese animation and one made from the Superman/Doomsday video.

Then the awards where given, when they gave all the awards, from 3 to 1 with a tie in the first place and I wasn't there I was kind of depressed but then the presenter said that there was an especial award, one given 'cause the judges felt the video was really good even if it was life action, I got a present and an honorific mention 'cause of my Smallville video. One of the people who organized the event told me that one of judges totally loved my Justice video and thought that it was "really professional"

It was nice, but I wanted a real award ;), what do you think?? I was asking for to much??.  Hugs!!! Be well and take care, Monica

I think that for your first convention that even that honorable mention/special award is huge. Since it's your first and your video was obviously loved! Especially since it was unique because it had live action. It's also completely understandable to wanna get 1st place or 2nd hell even 3rd right? But I think you're fabulous with your vids and there could be more events in the future :). It's so cool that you even made a friend ;].

Muchas gracias Ana, I guess I'm happy I just, as you said wanted a place, but is truly amazing to get something in my first convention, who knows, maybe I'll do something else later on. Hugs!!!

I once got a most improved bowler award. That was pretty humiliating. This one sounds like a compliment.

I think it *is* a real award. I just think they worded their contest inaccurately and realized they really liked your work!

Hey Monica

Congrats on getting the special award from the judges! Its very impressive that you won an award the first time you entered a contest like this :D That's a great accomplishment.

I bet the only reason you didn't get first place was because the contest was biased towards anime type vids. So I'm guessing they didn't want to give it to a live action vid. From what I've heard about these kind of competitions that's usually the way they see things.

Hopefully in the future they'll open up the competition a little bit more and will be more willing to consider live action type vids. When that happens I'm sure you'll be able to take first prize :)

Reading is life... :)

Thank you :D, I do hope it was something like this and not that a judge is a Smallville fan and this one was the only one that fit with that ;).

Anyway I have no clue if I'm going to keep going with conventions, it was a really long time being there and I was tired afterwards but I got a news about there being a cash price in the next convention, if it's true then I'm soooooooo in :D.

Hugs, hugs, hugs, thanks a lot for writing Keith, hugs!!! Monica
