I'll wait like 2 more days to see if the Admin for the contest gets to this question. if not i'll go ahead and send as is. other than this question im all set to enter o-o

Sorry about the delay. I believe that I just sent you an e-mail. If you render your file as .mpg or .mpeg, it should give the exact same result. As far as I can tell, they are the same thing, and you are only given one option or the other-- never both. Even if this is incorrect, the point is moot. I will be able to play your video.

[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.

Is the 10 point scale just an in house judgement system to figure out the finalists or does it have bearing on the final winner as well? Will we be notified of our ?/10 score and/or if we made the cut before the con?

If your editor name is fallzz, and your e-mail address starts with st and ends in yahoo.com, and your video is uploaded to http://www.animemusicvideos.org, I sent you an e-mail using the e-mail you sent, and sent in your video information, on December 12, 2010. My e-mail address is ReligionX@animemusicvideos.org.

The 10 point scale is just for the pre-screening, to determine which videos make it into the AMV Contest. The winners of the AMV Contest are chosen by con-goers only. At the convention, each person is given a ballot, and may select their favorite video in each genre. While we love our con-goers very much, we wouldn't want them to have to look for technical issues and give point deductions to videos. If a person selects 2+ videos in 1 genre, we don't count their vote for that genre.

The persons participating in the AMV Contest and / or General Screening will have their editor names posted, in a list, on this forum and the zenkaikon.com forum. If you want to know your score(s) from the pre-screening, you may e-mail me after the pre-screening.

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.

Hello again. I have an important update.

The deadline for the Zenkaikon 2011 AMV Contest has been pushed back to February 19, 2011.

We did not receive a sufficient number of submissions to hold a pre-screening, or to be able to provide quality presentations at Zenkaikon. We feel that the deadline was set at a poorly chosen date, right after the New Year, and proceeding the holiday season. We had hoped to feature our AMV Contest ballot, in whole, in the program guide, and that was the reason for this due date. We will no longer be able to do this. As a compromise, all editors who submitted an AMV to Zenkaikon 2011 by the original due date will have their editor name featured in the program guide.

We welcome all editors to submit to Zenkaikon's AMV Contest, and encourage existing submitted editors to make corrections to their videos by the new deadline. All editors who have already submitted an AMV to Zenkaikon will be e-mailed individually over the next few days after a second review of their AMV has been made.

The rules page on the Zenkaikon AMV Contest rules will be updated in the next few days to reflect this change. The rules of the AMV Contest as a whole will not change, but clarifications will be added to the rules, featuring the updates to the rules as posted on this forum thread, and from questions regarding the AMV Contest by e-mail.

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.
