Blacklisted Contests

This is a list of contests that have had consistent issues with communication and/or following through with promises they made to contestants.  This list is NOT for contests that are open and honest about only being for those that attend or if they are honest about not announcing outside of the convention.  Contests listed here may eventually come off the list once they have at least two consecutive years of improvement in which the issues listed are addressed.  If you wish to contribute to the list then contact me with enough information so that I can properly verify the issues with the contest in question.

Animazement
This contest has had a history of coordinators failing to enforce listed rules, not announcing winners online, and not sending prizes to winners after promising to do so.  They have also had an instance of losing several entries that were submitted to the contest.

Anime Banzai
Coordinators of this contest never posted the winners online after announcing them at the convention in 2013 and failed to send out prizes to winners.

Katsucon
In 2014 the coordinators allowed convention to take over all public announcements.  This means winners are not being announced online or are being heavily delayed in their online announcement.  Several members of animemusicvideos.org attend and may be able to provide results since the coordinators will not.

SugoiCon
Coordinators of this contest have never posted the winners online after announcing them at the convention.
