[Update] October 11, 2010
Contest Rules are being finalized, and will be posted in the near future. Note, "Zenkaikon 2010" did not exist due to scheduling changes. Zenkaikon 2011 is the next chronological event after Zenkaikon 2009. Zenkaikon 2011 is officially called "Zenkaikon V."

[Update] October 18, 2010
Official contest rules are posted. Contest is posted on http://www.animemusicvideos.org official AMV Contest listing. Deadline has been set for January 1, 2011.

This thread is designated for the discussion of any AMV related topics, particularly this AMV Contest. All AMV editors selected to have any videos shown at Zenkaikon 2011 will be listed here. The playlist of the AMV Contest and General Screening will be posted in this thread.

[Update]November 1, 2010
2 months until the deadline.

[Update]November 7, 2010
Participation Update: You do not have to attend Zenkaikon to participate in the AMV Contest. It was never clearly stated one way or another, but this was always implied.

[Update]December 1, 2010
1 month until the deadline.

[Update]December 12, 2010:
You are allowed to submit non-final drafts of your AMV to Zenkaikon prior to the deadline, and re-submit your videos by the deadline after making corrections. If you have any questions regarding the quality, content, or any other aspect of your video, please let me know as soon as possible. If you would like any last minute advice for your AMVs, please submit your AMVs no later than December 26th. If you are going to request an FTP login for upload, please have your request in by December 26th. Logins are limited, so please upload your AMV as soon as you can.

All submissions received through December 27th - January 1st will be accepted as is, and will NOT be screened prior to the pre-screening. A notification e-mail may or may not be sent of the receipt of your AMV during this time.

If you are asked to make corrections, this is not a mandatory requirement, only a suggestion. Please keep in mind that videos are going to be pre-screened and rated on a 10 point scale, 5 points are technical, 5 points are subjective to the judge of, "is this video any good?" Videos considered too violent, sexually provocative, or contains strong language will be disqualified and not shown at any time during Zenkaikon.

[Update]December 20, 2010:
2 Weeks to the deadline.

[Update]December 27, 2010:
This is your final reminder of the deadline on January 1, 2011 at 11:59 PM, EST. All editors who have submitted a video, or e-mailed a question have been responded to. Any videos submitted at this point are considered final drafts. As mentioned earlier, FTP from Zenkaikon is no longer available for submitting AMVs.

If you have not gotten a response from me, please send me another e-mail, as it is likely I have not gotten your video, or that my e-mail to you is in your spam folder.

[Update]January 03, 2011:
The deadline for the Zenkaikon 2011 AMV Contest has been pushed back to February 19, 2011.

[Update]January 12, 2011:
The AMV Contest Rules have been updated with the new date and with answers to some questions I have been asked. None of the rules have been changed-- just clarified.
http://www.zenkaikon.com/events/amv.php

[Update]February 5, 2011:
2 Weeks to the deadline.

[Update]February 12, 2011:
1 week to the deadline.

[Update]February 19, 2011:
Today is the final day to send in your submissions. Have them in by 11:59 PM EST.

[Update]February 22, 2011:
The AMVs have been pre-screened, and the results are posted. See page 4 for the results. We are still accepting AMVs for the General Screening.

[Update]March 15, 2011:
March 16th, 11:59 PM will be the last possible moment we are accepting AMVs for the General Screening. If you've been holding out, send it in. I look forward to showing these AMVs this weekend. I hope to see you there. ^-^

[Update]March 17, 2011:
The editors who will have AMVs played during the General Screening has been updated, as the General Screening playlist has been finalized. It is still undecided what will be played, if anything, during the AMV Seating.

[Update]March 21, 2011:
AMV Contest Playlist:
viewtopic.php?p=1378828#p1378828
AMV General Screening Playlist:
viewtopic.php?p=1378906#p1378906

[Update]March 23, 2011:
The AMV Contest and AMV General Screening Playlists have been updated with some corrected video information. I ask for video confirmation information, and do not always get it. I did some searching, and I was able to find download links on animemusicvideos.org to many of the AMVs submitted. I know that many of the AMVs have links available on youtube. I will NOT post those links.

If any editor would like to upload their AMV to animemusicvideos.org, or has already done so, and their link is not provided in this playlist currently, you may contact me by e-mail, and I will add your link to the playlist.

The rules are up and ready to go.
http://www.zenkaikon.com/events/amv.php

The deadline for the AMV Contest is January 1, 2011. We know this is not a whole lot of time. We are hoping to feature the AMV Contest play list in the program guide this year, and this pushes the deadline a lot earlier. We are able to offer nice trophies to the contest winners. Please read over the rules, and send your submissions and questions to amv@zenkaikon.com.

You should probably read over the rules.
http://www.zenkaikon.com/events/amv.php

It is not an online contest, in that this will be shown at an anime convention, and shown in front of a live audience. There is no registration process required, though you will need to fill out the requested information when you submit. I guess that is technically registration, but probably not to the extent that you are thinking.

1.) You submit your video, by mail, direct download (recommended), or request an FTP upload.
2.) I review your video, and send you a confirmation by e-mail.
3.) If everything sounds good to you, and to me, your video is entered into the pre-screening.

To be fair, the rules don't actually say anything about attendance at the convention.

That said, fallz19, you can usually assume for North American conventions that you don't have to attend the con in order to enter the AMV contest. (The one exception I can think of is JACON.)

Yes. Absolutely. Please send your video(s).

It did not occur to me to put anywhere whether or not you needed to be in attendance. I'll make note of that. Half of the videos I get are from people who do not attend the conventions.

I am once again, not quite sure what you mean.

You make an AMV, send it to us, and we tell you when we get your AMV. That's it.

If you attend Zenkaikon, great! If you don't, you can read up on the results after the convention.
