Fanime FMV Competition 2016 - NOW CLOSED! WINNERS NOW POSTED!
« on: February 10, 2016, 10:31:42 PM »

It's that time of year again! The Fanime AMV/FMV contest is open this year for entries!

Taking over for the competition this year, but my staff and I will be adhering to the standards we've had in years before to try and bring you a quality competition for 2016! Without further ado, let's go over the rules so we can get your entries in!

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, 2015
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 15, 2016 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 won't be downloaded, so PLEASE compress your work.

Awards
The awards are TBA at a later date.

Prizes will be sent to winners who are not in attendance following the con, but please try to make it to the awards ceremony! More details on that will be provided once we know more about our time slots over the course of Fanime 2016.

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 15, 2016 at 11:59 P.M. PDT.

Submission Form:
Please go to http://goo.gl/forms/VG03VjZJJc 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.

If you have any questions, email us at gaki.amv(at)gmail.com. Confirmation emails will be sent out from fmvcontestofficial(at)gmail.com.

And now for the winners!

UPDATE: The FMV Contest will be offering the following awards:

$70 Amazon Gift Card for each Best In Category
One $100 Amazon Gift Card for Judges' Best in Show
One $100 Amazon Gift Card for Audience's Best In Show

Attendance is not required in order to receive a prize. Any editors not in attendance will be contacted following the convention to confirm their shipping information.

As with prior years, the winning video of each category is eligible for winning Best in Show, so in theory, a single editor could go home with $270 in prizes.

When will you guys send out the emails? I'm just worried about you guys not receiving/seeing my submission before the deadline date is all.

Hey XeroRain,

My dept head is the one sending out mail- you should receive an acknowledgment within the next few days. However, so long as you hit the submit button and Google said you successfully sent the form, we have your info. :) We base the cutoff on when submissions were entered, not when we download them or inform the entrants, so you're way early and totally fine. Hope that helps!

Hello Editors,

This is the FINAL WEEK to send in your AMVs for Fanime. If you've been procrastinating, now's the time to kick it into high gear!

We need more entries in every category, but especially upbeat, trailer, and comedy. Keep them coming!

I'm one of those procrastinators  :P but on the last few detail edits.

My main question is, its mentioned your video may be placed in a different category. I feel my video fits at least 3 of the categories so I'm not sure what to select. Will the team determine the actual category my video will fit best in?

Thanks! Really looking forward to this year.

Hi Animator22! Sorry for the late reply.

In short, yes. The judging team will move videos that aren't best suited to the category they were entered into as necessary. It's not done very often, but it has been known to happen. So feel free to submit under any category you like that seems suitable and we'll take care of it if need be. :)

In other news, this is the LAST DAY to enter, folks! You have until midnight pacific time tonight. If you haven't submitted yet, you're nearly out of time! Unless you have Homura's shield or something.

Hello,

Just checking to see if there's any information about the event after the submission process. I haven't seen any info after I received the submission received email so just want to be sure the event is still on.

Thank you!!

Thank you!!

The event is most definitely still on! I'm working on compiling the preshow and intro at the moment with plans to list the finalists just before the show and emails to be sent to them much before then.

Right now with the video department heads we've got the show planned for 4-8PM on Saturday with an encore to be shown on Sunday at 1:30 to 4:30PM. I won't know which rooms we're going to be using until later this week sadly, so I can't give any more info on that.

Shorisquared was kind enough to assemble a playlist of the finalist videos! Check it out here!

Here's the pre-show vids too folks!

Digital Champions - Gabbi
Everyday Wolves - Tigrin
How to be a Human - Animator22
Attack of the Killer Tomatoes - SoLongDreamWorld
Standing on the Edge - SeanPNG
My Shot - Shodankid

I can't seem to find some of the other vids, so if you see it please give me a heads up and I'll add it to this list.

Want to thank the editors again and it was a blast to talk with some of you guys before the show! Sorry that we weren't able to get everyone's videos on screen, but the entrants, judges, and our time limits were absolutely brutal this year.

Thanks for the links Animator22. Updated the list on my post, but the one you put up for Everyday Wolves seems to be sending me to a Cowboy Bebop vid instead.

Oh you know what that was my bad. I remember seeing that Cowboy Bebop/Trigun crossover but I thought it was during the show but it was actually one of the top 100 AMVs that was playing in one of the rooms on Friday.

My apologies, i got that one mixed up. Now I remember that was the Wolf Children Whirlpool trailer. Some reason the title made me think of the crossover  :P.
