AMV Contest

Inspiring and catchy Anime Music Videos

Matching anime video clips with cool music! These are anime music videos (short: AMV).

And this year once again the AMV contest of DoKomi takes place. So get to the video editing tools and there you go!

The AMV contest is about creating the best music video. It should pay particular attention to fitting music and good timing. The best videos will be presented at DoKomi.


This year we have some changes of the AMV contest! Instead of three categories as before, there is only one. Instead of three placements, we have five now!

Matching the theme of DoKomi 2019 "Retro" the topic of the AMV contest is: 90s Hits!

Pick a song that appeared in the 90s and create a matching AMV! Anime(s), mood or themes are completely free to you, the important thing is that it fits the song. The best five videos are rewarded with great prizes!

This years contest has ended. The deadline was on the 12th of May 2019.

The winners will be announced at the DoKomi on Saturday at 4 a.m. on the Black Stage.

All winning videos will be shown in our AMV-area at the DoKomi.

What are AMVs?

AMV means Anime Music Video. Videoclips cut together with a fitting song, like the music clips known from chart songs. Often used are clips and scenes from animes or video games. They should fit together with the song and perhaps even tell a little story which also fits to the song.

If you search for inspiration or did not understand what an AMV is then search for the term 'AMV' at a video page of your choice.

With which tools can I create an AMV?

First you need anime video clips an your computer. You can cut, link and align them with the music using video editing softwares. But of course it is not as easy as it sounds! ;)

Here you find a list of video editing softwares.
