Ohayocon 2012 AMV Contest

Postby ahinton » Tue Sep 06, 2011 6:10 pm

Hello,

I am now accepting videos for Ohayocon 2012's AMV Contest. This year, there will be a new feature, a category featuring MMVs (Manga Music Videos) along with the regular categories. So if you are a MMV editor, I encourage you to enter your video.
The registration form closes down on Dec 19th and I need the videos by the beginning of the year, so you have plenty of time.
Please click here for the rules
Please click here to go to the registration form

Any questions just ask.

Hello again. I wanted to keep this topic going because I need videos from all of the major categories, including our feature category, Manga Music Videos, or MMV's. I will be accepting videos up untill January the 1st which is just over a month from now as of this post. And I would love to have your videos entered into the contest.

For those of you not familar with Ohayocon, just to let you know, we are expecting over 10,000 people in attendance this comming year. And this comming year, the contest showing will run for 2 hrs. Therefore, I will use this as a motivating factor for you. There is a good chance that not only will your video be shown in the contest (I do ask that you read the rules and follow them first before I can accept the video), but that it will be shown in front of one of the more larger audiences in the country to see an AMV contest. And you do not have to attend Ohayocon to submit a video.

And for those of you concerned about how last year's contest faired, I believe this comming year's contest will be improved from last years. Some of the things that have been added including a judgeing panel, awards for the best in categories, and a list of rules that, hopefully, are more clearer then last years.

So that said, if you have any questions, please e-mail me at: amv2011.ohayocon@gmail.com.
Thanks for your time.

Would a combo of manga and anime still fit in the MMV category or does it have to exclusively be manga? I have a project that I've had on the backburner thats a combo, and could shift gears and might be able to finish it before the deadline.

It depends on how much anime you plan on using. I have the rules set up for no less then 85% manga footage. While, I admit, I don't have a quantative formula as to how to determine how much is 85%, I think it still shows that the vast majority of the video needs to be of manga footage for the video to be categorized as MMV. In otherwords, if it is a 50/50 split, it will not qualify in the category. That said, I don't want to stifle creativity, so if that is how it ends up, I can still accept the video, just not in the MMV category. Thanks for your question, though.

It has been several years since I've entered Ohayocon, I'll see if I can send something in.

Registration for the AMV contest for Ohayocon 2012 is now closed. Also, I will not be accepting any more videos, even if you have registered but not submitted a video. In about a week from now, I will announce the finalists in a seperate topic. Thanks to everyone who has submitted videos for the contest.
