720 x 480 or 640x480, hard-letterboxed if using widescreen footage
OK, I see what you wrote here, but a question: Will you resize my 1280×720 video, or should I have to do it myself?
I'll be uniforming all the finalist videos so don't worry about it.
Most of the non-us entries are much larger resolutions with credits. While they are against the rules, I know that alot of overseas contests don't have any rules that prohibit things like that, so we're cutting those entrants a bit of slack.
However, little word of advice to anyone/everyone who enters convention contests
It's best to have a "con version" of your video onhand that is credit/bumper-less and at the average resolution which is 720x480. While NDK may be letting larger resolutions and such slide for quite a bit of people, not every North American con will do this >_>;;
