Video Programming / Fanime Music Video 2014 Contest Accepting Entries!
« on: February 25, 2014, 11:22:45 AM »
We are now accepting entries! Send us your best!


To submit your video, please fill out the following Google Doc: http://goo.gl/Ucl79b

---

Hi all,

If you find any problems with the rules (which have been modified from prior years' rules), feel free to let me know so I can look into it. I am basically making mild alterations to pre-existing rules, so if you feel anything should be changed, there's a short window of time to inform me and for any potential changes to be made.

--

Greetings, everyone! Please read the rules carefully as some major (and minor) changes have been made from prior years. We have new staff running the FMVs (Fanime Music Videos) and will be happy to answer any questions you might have.

FMV Contest Rules and Guidelines

The rules are put in place to make an even playing field for all contestants. Please keep in mind that we at Fanime aren't perfect, so mistakes can happen. If the mistake is found on your end, we will do our best to contact you and give you the chance to fix it. With the large number of entries expected, we can't devote a lot of time to any one FMV, so some corrections may not be allowed. If the mistake is found on our end we will work as fast as possible to correct it. Remember we on the FMV staff work hard and will do our best to do right by all contestants.

All questions and comments can be sent to: tsu.amv@gmail.com, posted here, or you can PM me.

UPDATES OF NOTE
New Bonus Award
New Deadlines.
New Disqualification Rules/Quality Requirements
New Entry Method

GENERAL SUBMISSION RULES

• Up to, but not exceeding, 2 videos may be submitted per entrant, organization, or group.

• There is no maximum length for videos, but 5 minutes is preferred as the longest length. Keep in mind that videos of excessive length may be cut due to time constraints.

• All videos may not have been submitted to any prior Fanime Con AMV event.

• Any video with extreme sexual and/or excessive violent content will be automatically disqualified from the contest. Keep in mind that some nudity is artistic in nature, but any video that the judges deem in poor taste will be removed.

• Any video with severe encoding problems, obviously downloaded streaming footage (footage taken from YouTube, Vimeo, etc.) and videos containing subtitles that were not specifically created by the editor for the purpose of the video will be disqualified. If your video is found to have one of these problems and time permits, we will attempt to contact you to see if you have a better version available to send to us.

• “Remake” videos are only allowed if they are created by the same editor who created the original, and in that case, we cannot accept a remake of a video whose original was sent in to a prior FanimeCon.

• Videos must be the creation of the person who is entering it. You cannot submit videos on someone else’s behalf.

• Videos containing footage taken from someone else’s video, or footage “remade”, “emulated” or copied scene-for-scene, effect-for-effect are strictly NOT allowed. Anyone found stealing footage will be banned from future contests at FanimeCon.

Video Bumpers
Please don't put opening or closing bumpers in your video. We will be putting uniform title bumpers to all the videos ourselves.

Submission Due Dates

All videos must be in the hands of the video coordinator no later than the Hard Deadline of 11:59PM PST/PDT on Wednesday April 30th, 2014. Additional points will be awarded for all entries submitted on the Soft Deadline on or before Wednesday April 23rd, 2014. All videos submitted will be tested to make sure that there are no problems with playback. If there are any problems, there is a short amount of time to fix and/or resubmit your work.


Online Submissions
Online submissions are now the only method of entry to the contest. We are no longer accepting physical media via mail. Please upload your file to any file sharing service you like and direct us as to where (and if complicated, how) to download it. We can also download video from your AMVs.org uploads if your video has been uploaded there. There are many other file sharing websites online and you may use any that you want, just don’t send links to any illegal or illicit file hosting websites. Entries are not accepted at-con.

Entry form will be added at a later date.


File Formats
We are only accepting files that are formatted in MPEG2, AVI, or MP4. If you choose to select a format that is different from the one’s listed we will contact you and ask that you change it’s format. Please, when exporting your files stay within official resolutions 720X480 or 1280x720 and with stereo audio. Videos may be rejected if the resolution is too small.

Video:

MPEG2, AVI and MP4s accepted.
Frame rate should be either 23.97 or 29.97.
Please use resolutions of 720x480 or 1280x720. Higher resolutions will be scaled down.
Please compress your video- don’t send us your original uncompressed copy. While we don’t have a limit on filesize, we would prefer to not have to download 500MB+ videos!

Audio:

• 192 Kilobits per second or better
• Choose stereo over joint stereo for best quality
• Sample at 44.1Khz

*Note! When resizing your video the choice of maintaining the aspect ratio will be determined on a video-to-video basis.

Events and Judging
Judging staff will consist of Fanime FMV coordination staff, Fanime Con staff, outside technical and artistic judges, and AMV editors not participating in Fanime AMV events for the current year.
Fanimecon has four genres as follows:
• ACTION - Adventure, Horror, Action.
• DRAMA - Romance, Emotions, Tear-Jerkers, Conflict
• COMEDY- Think Comedy, Parody, just things that really make you laugh.
• EXPERIMENTAL/TRAILER: AMV Trailers and anything that doesn’t match the criteria for the above categories will be placed here.


*** Note! Judging staff reserves the right to place your video in any category if they feel the video was misplaced. To avoid any conflicts we will contact you before this move.


100 Point Judging Scale:
35 Points – Skill/Technical Prowess
35 Points – Creativity/Concept
15 Points – Quality of Audio selection
15 Points – Quality of source material.


EXTRA POINTS:
2 Extra points will be given to those who submit on or before April 23rd, 2014



*Note! Please keep in mind that the 100 point scale and any extra points are assigned per judge on the judges panel. This means that every point has the potential to make or break a winner.


The judging staff will view each entry and choose which entries will make it into the finals. Don't despair - those that don't make it into the finals will still be shown along with those that did make it into the contest during the con in-between programming during the convention.


Notifications
Different notifications will be sent out to each contestant depending on how far they made it through judging.


1st Email – This will be sent to you notifying you that your video has been received and logged into our system.


2nd Email – There will be two different types sent out. Type A will be informing you that you have made it into the contest. Type B will be informing you yours was not chosen this year.


3rd Email – This Email will be sent to everyone giving you the time, date, and seating arrangements.


Award Classifications

• Judges Choice:
Judges Choice will be decided prior to Fanime Con and will not be announced until the Award Ceremony.
• Viewers Choice:
The attending audience of the finals judging will decide Viewers Choice. All audience members will vote on their favorite video by ballot.
• Bonus Awards:
This year’s bonus award is based upon Fanimecon’s theme. As this is their 20th Anniversary, the con’s theme is “Celebration” with an additional Beach Party theme. Videos that follow the spirit of celebration in some way and/or involve beach parties will be accepted as potential contestants for the bonus award.

Each genre will have a winner. There will also be two Best of Show awards chosen out of all submissions (one from Judges and one from Audience). The bonus award will be given to the video which best meets the theme out of ALL entries, as chosen by the Judges. Awards will be submitted to all winners during the Award Ceremony at the con. You do not have to be present at the con to receive your award but it would be nice if you were. Any awards unclaimed at con will be mailed out.

PRIZES:
A $50 Gift Card will be given to each first place and Best in Show winner. With Judges and Audience votes, that means we have 10 gift cards to give away, and you can potentially win up to 3 for a single video (First Place x 2 and Best in Show).


Exhibition Videos
Exhibition videos will be accepted and may be shown at other events during the con. If you wish to submit an exhibition FMV please make sure your documentation says that it specifically is for the exhibition. Otherwise it will be judged as a regular FMV and may or may not be disqualified.

Notice!!! Fanime Con 2014 reserves the right to amend the rules at any time.

        We ask that you include a text file with your submission information. The inclusion of extra files sent in during your submission will not be tolerated. This infraction depending on the materiel sent may cause you to be disqualified.

        Online Submissions
        If you’re a very busy person, and a lot of us are, please send your videos online. You can send your file over the Internet via filesend.net. filesend.net will handle files up to 500mb in size for free with out registration, and 1GB if you register for the FREE account. There are many other file sharing websites online and you may use any that you want, just don’t send links to any illegal or illicit file hosting websites. Remember all file formatting and type rules still apply. Make sure to send your video to fmv@fanime.com. After the video has made its way to us please send another email with all the info as if it were a mailed entry.

       File Formats
        We are only accepting files that are formatted in MPEG2, AVI, MP4, or MOV. If you choose to select a format that is different from the one’s listed we will contact you and ask that you change it’s format. Please, when exporting your files stay within official resolutions 720X480 or an HD size of 1280x720 and with stereo audio. Videos may be rejected if the resolution is too small.

Suggested Programs for file conversion
   If you need to convert your video to an accepted file format we suggest using one of these two programs.   MPEG Streamclip and TMPGEnc. Both are free and easy to use.

        ASF, WMV, MKV, Windows Media, Flash/Shockwave Animation, Real Media, and HUFYUV Files are unacceptable.

        General File Settings
Video:
•   29.97 Frames Per second
•   Encode with an aspect ratio of 16:9, 4:3 is allowed but might be stretched during our conversion process.
•   If your original source was film or 24fps add a 3:2 Pulldown this will convert it to 29.97 fps
•   Please encode your video as deinterlaced. Interlaced is OK but we will deinterlace the video for the contest. 
•   Video size must be either 720X480 4:3 Format or 1280X720 16:9 Format
•   Single pass set to a variable bit rate and select 16 megabits per second
•   If you use two pass VBR set to 2 megabits as the minimum, 8 megabits as the average, and 16 megabits as the maximum.
•   We have had issues converting certain codecs in the past such as YCrCb or LAM (LAME). Please avoid these if possible. We will contact you if any entries have converting issues and work with you to fix it as soon as we can. 

Audio:
•   Use Layer-II or Layer-III audio at 224 Kilobits per second or better
•   Choose stereo over joint stereo for best quality
•   Sample at 44.1Khz

        We have a lot of hard drive space available and would rather sacrifice size over quality. If you're unsure of how or what resolution/frame rate/bit rate/audio settings to choose, please send the source file and let us do the conversion for you.

           *Note! When resizing your video the choice of maintaining the aspect ratio will be determined on a video-to-video basis.

Events and Judging
        Judging staff will consist of Fanime FMV coordination staff, Fanime Con staff, outside technical and artistic judges, and AMV editors not participating in Fanime AMV events for the current year.
        Judging staff will separate all videos submitted into 4 genres as follows:
        • ACTION - Think Action, Adventure, Horror things that tell an exiting story.
        • DRAMA -  Think Drama, Romance things that tell a story that makes you feel.
        • COMEDY- Think Comedy, Parody, just things that really make you laugh.
        • EXPERIMENTAL - Think outside the box! Movie Trailer AMV will be included in this category. (any FMV that pushes the limits and crosses genre barriers, A.K.A the ones we can't categorize)
 

Notifications
   Different notifications will be sent out to each contestant depending on how far they made it through judging. I will post copies of the Email’s on the forums and a description of what they mean to avoid any confusion.


1st Email – This will be sent to you notifying you that your video has been received and logged into our system.


2nd Email – There will be two different types sent out. Type A will be informing you that you have made it into the contest. Type B will be informing you yours was not chosen this year.

100 Point Judging Scale:
        35 Points – Skill/Technical Prowess
        35 Points – Creativity/Concept – “does the Video go with the music?” “Does your Music Video flow gracefully or does it roll like Square wheels”
        15 Points – Quality of Audio selection – “Does the music fit the tone or selection of anime used in your Music Video” and "Does the quality in general sound ok?"
        15 Points – Quality of source material – “Does you video have the DivX Logo? Does your video look grainy when expanded to full screen? Subtitles will hurt this score.”
         

EXTRA POINTS:
2 Extra points will be given to those who submit on or before April 24rd, 2013
5 Extra points will be given to those that submitted properly – This one must be self evident, you need to submit the right information in the right format. Videos adhere to the submission guidelines regarding formatting, codecs. 


*Note! Please keep in mind that the 100 point scale and any extra points are assigned per judge on the judges panel. This means that every point has the potential to make or break a winner.


        The judging staff will view each entry and choose which entries will make it into the finals. Don't despair - those that don't make it into the finals will still be shown along with those that did make it into the contest during the con in-between programming during the convention.


        Award Classifications

            • Judges Choice:
                    Judges Choice will be decided prior to Fanime Con and will not be announced until the Award Ceremony.
            • Viewers Choice:
                    The attending audience of the finals judging will decide Viewers Choice. All audience members will vote on their favorite video by ballot.
            • Bonus Awards:
                    Special awards in their own special theme that you're able to get no matter what genre you enter into. (Think bonus stars in Mario Party  ;) )
                    This year's bonus awards are:
                    • The "Best Minute Ever!" Award - Can you make an amazing AMV that clocks in at a minute long or less?
                    • The "Life After Death" Award - Is your AMV focused on the undead? Are the stars of your AMV zombies, vampires, or ghosts? Then this might be for you!
                    • The "Sickeningly Sweet" Award - Chibis? Cute Animals? CUTE CHIBI ANIMALS? Is your AMV's cute factor over 9000? If it has tons of babies, cute furry animals, or is just overly   
                                                                            saturated with super cuteness, then this might be right up your alley.
                    •The "Satin Panties" Award - Can you make a provocative AMV with super sexy characters? Even more important, can you keep it PG so that we can actually
                                                                   show it? They can be laughing or blowing things up. It doesn't matter as long as you think they look good doing it.

Each genre will have a winner. There will also be two Best of Show awards chosen out of all submissions (one from Judges and one from Audience). One of each Bonus Awards will be given to the video that best represents the spirit of that award's theme out of ALL entries. Awards will be submitted to all winners during the Award Ceremony, which is held during con. You do not have to be present at the con to receive your award but it would be nice if you were. Any awards unclaimed at con will be mailed out.


      Exhibition Videos
        Exhibition videos will be accepted and may be shown at other events during the con. If you wish to submit an exhibition FMV please make sure your documentation says that it specifically is for the exhibition. Otherwise it will be judged as a regular FMV and may or may not be disqualified.

        Notice!!! Fanime Con 2013 reserves the right to make amendments to the rules at any time.

Video Programming / 2012 FMV Contest - Feedback
« on: June 01, 2012, 01:00:40 AM »
Hi everyone!
This year was a pretty great show. While this year had its challenges behind the scenes, the show came out great (Big thanks to my FMV Dept. 2nd Tiffany Dailey). So to everyone that submitted: Thank you! We would not have a show with out you.

The winners are now posted here and on animemusicvideos.org along with the line up info for the videos. Also, once again, I have received many, many request to see this year's entries online. We will be contacting the editors and hoping that they can provide a link to their videos.
So if you submitted an entry this year and would like to have people check out your entry, please send a link to your posted video to fmv@fanime.com or josemarin7_15@yahoo.com with the subject "Show Off My 2012 FMV!"
We tried this last year and only got a couple of replies. Please send us your info!


Also, we would love to hear any and all feedback from you, the fans, about anything and everything FMV related. With that being said, I have some basic questions that I'll repeat from earlier in the year for both editors and audience alike that covers FMV judging, submitting, showing, categories, prizes or anything else that you can think of:

1. What did you like? What worked for you?



2. What did you not like? Is there anything you feel needs to be improved?


3. What would you like to see from the show? Do you like animated shorts/trailers? Any ideas for prizes? What day would be preferred for the show? Stuff like that. Basically ANYTHING that comes to mind about ANYTHING related to FMV.

Also,
Next year we want to revamp the show with new prizes and new categories. We have a few ideas in mind, but we would really like to hear yours too! We will also be working on getting a Fanime FMV Facebook page and Twitter for greater communication, feedback and exposure.


Please be as honest as possible, but keep it respectful. The more feedback the better! If you have one sentence or a long response, that's great! The more we hear from you, the better we can make next year's show!

We can't wait to hear back from everyone!

This means that if you are missing an email from us, please contact us ASAP!!! Also please check your emails for any messages regarding issues with videos. I know there were a couple.
To make it easy for you though, you won't get an official confirmation email if we are still having issues. If you got the confirmation email, then your entries are working just fine. ;D

We've been getting loads of entries this week! I'd like to add that we've had a higher number of international entries this year as well.

Below is this year's schedule of events thus far:

Video Programming / 2012 FMV Contest - Prize Ideas

Video Programming / 2012 FMV Contest New Stuff!
« on: January 17, 2012, 11:35:15 PM »
Hi everyone!
We've been working on some new stuff for this year's FMV Contest.

First off, we will be posting updates as we near the deadlines for this years contest regarding the number of entries received in each category. We will also be posting previous year's numbers so that you can better decide what kind of FMV entry to submit. This comes from the overwhelming number of outstanding submissions we had last year in the Drama category. Sadly, we did not have a long enough show to accommodate all the totally show worthy FMV's.

This brings me to our second addition (by popular demand). We have worked out an agreement with Stage Zero and we will be providing them with the FMV entries to play through out FanimeCon 2012. When and where they are played are up to the discretion of Stage Zero, however, this will give a chance to FMV entries that don't make the show a chance to be seen (and maybe draw a crowd and attention to your awesome work ;D) throughout the length of FanimeCon 2012. If you would like us to exclude your entry from the list given to Stage Zero, please let us know.

***Please also note that the FMV Dept Crew has recently relocated to sunny Hollywood! Therefore, keep in mind that there is a NEW address for your entries in the rules.***


If you have any more ideas or suggestions, please voice your thoughts. We're always happy to take note!

Video Programming / 2012 FMV Contest Rules and Guidelines!
« on: January 17, 2012, 11:33:25 PM »
FMV Contest Rules and Guidelines

        The rules are put in place to make an even playing field for all contestants. Please keep in mind that we at Fanime aren't perfect, so mistakes can happen.  If the mistake is found on your end, we will do our best to contact you and give you the chance to fix it.  With the large number of entries expected, we can't devote a lot of time to any one FMV, so some corrections may not be allowed. If the mistake is found on our end we will work as fast as possible to correct it.  Remember we on the FMV staff work hard and will do our best to do right by all contestants.

        A note to all contestants: please do not send your only or master copy, as all materials submitted will not be returned.

        All questions and comments can be sent to: fmv@fanime.com or josemarin7_15@yahoo.com

           GENERAL SUBMISSION RULES
 
            • Up to, but not exceeding, 2 videos may be submitted per entrant, organization, or group.

            • There is no maximum length for videos, but 5 minutes is preferred as the longest length. Keep in mind that videos of excessive length may be cut due to time constraints.

            • All videos may not have been submitted to any prior Fanime Con AMV event.

            • Any video with extreme sexual and/or excessive violent content will be automatically disqualified from the contest. Keep in mind that some nudity is artistic in nature, but any video that the judges deem in poor taste will be removed.

            • Specific dates and times for all FanimeCon events are to be determined at a later date.

            • Special seating will be made available for all contestants during the showing. Please be sure we have your E-mail and mailing address when submitting so your seating location, times, and materials may be sent to you.

       Video Bumpers
        Please don't put opening or closing bumpers in your video if at all possible. We will be putting uniform title bumpers to all the videos ourselves. Having a bumper will not disqualify your video but will be edited out. If you do not want your video to possibly receive a bad edit, please do it yourself.

        Submission Due Dates

        All videos must be in the hands of the video coordinator no later than the Hard Deadline of midnight on Monday April 30th, 2012. Additional points will be awarded for all entries submitted on the Soft Deadline on or before Monday April 23rd, 2012. All videos submitted will be tested to make sure that there are no problems with playback. If there are any problems, there is a short amount of time to fix and/or resubmit your work. Remember this isn't school, so don't delay - submit A.S.A.P.


       Digital Submissions
        All entries must be submitted in a digital format, this means no VHS, HI8, or BETA Max. To allow complete control over the final appearance and quality of the video submitted, and to prevent quality loss, it is in the submitter's best interest to handle digital conversion.

        We ask that you include a text file with your submission information. The inclusion of extra files sent in during your submission will not be tolerated. This infraction depending on the materiel sent may cause you to be disqualified.

        Online Submissions
        If you’re a very busy person, and a lot of us are, please send your videos online. You can send your file over the Internet via filesend.com. filesend.com will handle files up to 500mb in size for free with out registration, and 1GB if you register for the FREE account. There are many other file sharing websites online and you may use any that you want, just don’t send links to any illegal or illicit file hosting websites. Remember all file formatting and type rules still apply. Make sure to send your video to fmv@fanime.com. After the video has made its way to us please send another email with all the info as if it were a mailed entry.

Note: Due to problems with downloads from the site and certain restrictions placed upon downloading, we ask that you DO NOT upload via Mega Upload. Filesend.com is preferred.

Info to accompany your entry as a text file with your submission(s):

All disks must be clearly labeled in consecutive order as part of a set (example: 3 of 7 or XXX of YYY)
          
If you wish to submit your file in another format to span media please email fmv@fanime.com to confirm we can handle it.

No media formatted as VCD, SVCD, or DVD-Video will be accepted. All media should be data formatted and readable as a simple file, usable on a PC or MAC.

        ATTN: Fanime FMV 2K11
        C/o Jose Marin
        8906 Hazeltine Ave
        Panorama City, CA 91402


Note: This address is new. Please update your notes, friends, etc!!!

       File Formats
        We are only accepting files that are formatted in MPEG2, AVI, MP4, or MOV. If you choose to select a format that is different from the one’s listed we will contact you and ask that you change it’s format. Please, when exporting your files stay within official resolutions 720X480 or an HD size of 1280x720 and with stereo audio. Videos may be rejected if the resolution is too small.

Suggested Programs for file conversion
   If you need to convert your video to an accepted file format we suggest using one of these two programs.   MPEG Streamclip and TMPGEnc. Both are free and easy to use.

        ASF, WMV, MKV, Windows Media, Flash/Shockwave Animation, Real Media, and HUFYUV Files are unacceptable.

        General File Settings
Video:
•   29.97 Frames Per second
•   Encode with an aspect ratio of 16:9, 4:3 is allowed but might be stretched during our conversion process.
•   If your original source was film or 24fps add a 3:2 Pulldown this will convert it to 29.97 fps
•   Please encode your video as deinterlaced. Interlaced is OK but we will deinterlace the video for the contest.  
•   Video size must be either 720X480 4:3 Format or 1280X720 16:9 Format
•   Single pass set to a variable bit rate and select 16 megabits per second
•   If you use two pass VBR set to 2 megabits as the minimum, 8 megabits as the average, and 16 megabits as the maximum.
•   We have had issues converting certain codecs in the past such as YCrCb or LAM (LAME). Please avoid these if possible. We will contact you if any entries have converting issues and work with you to fix it as soon as we can.  

Audio:
•   Use Layer-II or Layer-III audio at 224 Kilobits per second or better
•   Choose stereo over joint stereo for best quality
•   Sample at 44.1Khz

        We have a lot of hard drive space available and would rather sacrifice size over quality. If you're unsure of how or what resolution/frame rate/bit rate/audio settings to choose, please send the source file and let us do the conversion for you.

           *Note! When resizing your video the choice of maintaining the aspect ratio will be determined on a video-to-video basis.

Events and Judging
        Judging staff will consist of Fanime FMV coordination staff, Fanime Con staff, outside technical and artistic judges, and AMV editors not participating in Fanime AMV events for the current year.
        Judging staff will separate all videos submitted into 4 genres as follows:
        • Action/Adventure/Horror
        • Drama/Romance
        • Comedy/Parody
        • Experimental (any FMV that pushes the limits and crosses genre barriers, A.K.A the ones we can't categorize)
 *Note! If we decide to move you video to another category we will attempt to contact you, if we get no reply we will make the change.

Notifications
   Different notifications will be sent out to each contestant depending on how far they made it through judging. I will post copies of the Email’s on the forums and a description of what they mean to avoid any confusion.


1st Email – This will be sent to you notifying you that your video has been received and logged into our system.


2nd Email – There will be two different types sent out. Type A will be informing you that you have made it into the contest. Type B will be informing you yours was not chosen this year.


3rd Email – This Email will be sent to everyone giving you the time, date, and seating arrangements.
      

100 Point Judging Scale:
        35 Points – Skill/Technical Prowess
        35 Points – Creativity/Concept – “does the Video go with the music?” “Does your Music Video flow gracefully or does it roll like Square wheels”
        10 Points – Choice of Audio Selection – “Does the music fit the tone or selection of anime used in your Music Video” and "Does the quality in general
        15 Points – Quality of source material – “Does you video have the DivX Logo? Does your video look grainy when expanded to full screen? Subtitles will hurt this score.”
          5 Points - Submitted properly – This one must be self evident, you need to submit the right forms, format, and have it in on time.


EXTRA POINTS:
2 Extra points will be given to those who submit on or before April 23rd, 2012


*Note! Please keep in mind that the 100 point scale and any extra points are assigned per judge on the judges panel. This means that every point has the potential to make or break a winner.


        The judging staff will view each entry and choose which entries will make it into the finals. Don't despair - those that don't make it into the finals will still be shown along with those that did make it into the contest during the con in-between programming during the convention.


        Award Classifications

            • Judges Choice:
                    Judges Choice will be decided prior to Fanime Con and will not be announced until the Award Ceremony.
            • Viewers Choice:
                    The attending audience of the finals judging will decide Viewers Choice. All audience members will vote on their favorite video by ballot.

Each genre will have a winner. There will also be a Best of Show from all genres. Awards will be submitted to all winners during the Award Ceremony, which is held during con. You do not have to be present at the con to receive your award but it would be nice if you were.


       Exhibition Videos
        Exhibition videos will be accepted and may be shown at other events during the con. If you wish to submit an exhibition FMV please make sure your documentation says that it specifically is for the exhibition. Otherwise it will be judged as a regular FMV and may or may not be disqualified.

        Notice!!! Fanime Con 2012 reserves the right to make amendments to the rules at any time.

Video Programming / FMV Contest 2011 - Feedback
« on: May 31, 2011, 12:59:53 AM »
Hi everyone!
This year flat out rocked. I loved everything about working with this year's outstanding group of editors. So to everyone that submitted: Thank you! We would not have a show with out you.

I will be posting the winners up on the forums tomorrow night for everyone to see. Also, I have received many, many request to see this year's entries online. I found out that while we are not allowed to post the videos online directly, we can post links directing people to the video. This would be great as we had to cut so many awesome entries due to the limited length of the FMV showing.
So if you submitted an entry this year and would like to have people check out your entry, please send a link to your posted video to fmv@fanime.com or josemarin7_15@yahoo.com with the subject "Show Off My 2011 FMV!"


Also, we would love to hear any and all feedback from you, the fans, about anything and everything FMV related. With that being said, I have some basic questions that I'll repeat from earlier in the year for both editors and audience alike that covers FMV judging, submitting, showing, categories, prizes or anything else that you can think of:

1. What did you like? What worked for you?



2. What did you not like? Is there anything you feel needs to be improved?


3. What would you like to see from the show? Do you like animated shorts/trailers? Any ideas for prizes? What day would be preferred for the show? Stuff like that. Basically ANYTHING that comes to mind about ANYTHING related to FMV.


*Keep in mind that we are aware of certian issues such as the lack of schedules, but please feel free to voice your opinion about that as well.



Please be as honest as possible, but keep it respectful. The more feedback the better! If you have one sentence or a long response, that's great! The more we hear from you, the better we can make next year's show!

I can't wait to hear back from everyone!
