Fanime Music Video Contest 2015 Rules
« on: February 20, 2015, 10:34:09 PM »

Fanime is now accepting entries for its AMV competition. Our rules have been shortened to make it easier to read, but there have been some changes, so please read carefully.

The Basics:



AMVs must be at least 30 seconds, and no longer than 6 minutes.
Up to 3 entries per person/group; only 1 video per category allowed.
NO bumpers, subtitles (unless made by you), watermarks, personal identifiers, titles, company logos or credits.
No AMV Hell-style videos allowed.
Videos that have been sent to prior Fanime AMV contests, altered or not, will not be accepted.
Video must have premiered after July 1, 2014
AMV must contain at least 70% anime, manga, or video game footage.
Must have a minimum resolution of 640x480 and a frame rate of 23.97 or 29.97.
Due April 19, 2015 at 11:59 P.M. PDT


Categories:

Action
Comedy
Drama
Trailer
Upbeat

Encoding
MP4s using H.264/AVC compression are preferred. However, we will also work with AVIs and MPEG2 files. Files larger than 400MB will not be downloaded, so compress your work.

Awards
Awards and Prizes (TBD) will be awarded to the best video in each category, Audience Best in Show and Judges' Best in Show.

Prizes will be sent to winners who are not in attendance following the con.

Disqualification Rules:
Videos containing portions of another editor's video will be disqualified and the submitter of said video will be permanently banned from all subsequent contests.
Participants who submit videos that are not their own will also be banned permanently.
Refusal to provide one's legal name will result in disqualification from the contest.

Judging & Use:

Videos will be prescreened and judged prior to the convention. The judges reserve the right to move a video to another category if they feel it would be a better fit.
Fanime reserves the right to use submitted AMVs during the convention and subsequent Fanime conventions, regardless of Finalist status.

Due Date:

Competing AMVs and their submission form are due by April 19, 2015 at 11:59 P.M. PDT.

Submission Form:

Please go to http://goo.gl/cRhSfe and provide a download link to your video. Streaming sites are not accepted. We can download from a-m-v.org's local server, but remember, no intros/bumpers/watermarks/titles/credits/etc.
If you don't have all of your videos available at the same time, feel free to use the form multiple times. Please contact us if you need/want to replace an entry with a new one or need to give us an updated download link, however.

One thing I have a problem with:

NO bumpers, subtitles (unless made by you), watermarks, personal identifiers, titles, company logos or credits.

This isn't a problem for most of my videos, because most of my videos use a standard bumper that I can easily remove. However, my next two projects - "35 Years" and "Failure in Stereo" - will have unusual openings into which the WDS logo will be irremovably integrated as part of the video itself.

That's how the rules are breaking down this year. Bumpers, titles, watermarks, etc., will be treated as grounds for DISQUALIFICATION, no exceptions.


If you can make another opening/video that can get the point across or look just as good as the video without titles, we can accept it, but in any other cases our hands are tied. Sorry.

Removing it from "Failure in Stereo" would be like editing the cylons out of Battlestar Galactica. Yeah, it's doable because they're almost never in it anyway, but what's left over isn't going to make a whole lot of sense :(

Just a reminder: the contest closes to entries this Sunday. If you're planning to enter, you don't have much time to do so.

Entering early also allows us to contact you if changes need to be made or there's a problem, so don't delay!

Interesting some of the names have a youtube account with the most likely entry for the contest...just in case you may want to see some of them before the contest

The pre-show is a small segment of videos that will be shown during the seating period before the AMV competition.

Great show this year! I love how you recapped last year's winners and the way you recapped the videos at the end as well. I think a non-voting encore show on Sunday would be a great addition next year for people who missed it Saturday and/or wanted to see them again on the big screen.
