Anime Milwaukee 2012 AMV Contest [Winners! pg. 2]

Postby Kariudo » Sat Oct 08, 2011 11:40 am

It's that time of year again folks!
The Anime Milwaukee AMV Contest train has pulled into the station, and we are now boarding all rows for you crazy landlubbers.

All silliness aside, this is the 5th annual AMKE AMV Contest (have I really been doing this for 5 years?)

As always, the information can be found here on our site, and you can click me to go to the contest form (if you already know how we roll).

There are no planned changes to the rules for this year. However, we do plan to print certificates for the winners and send them. With a little luck, I'll also be getting frames for the certificates.
I'll also be experimenting with audience voting this year. If my audience voting experiment works, there will also be awards for audience's choice in each category and best of show. Certificates will not be printed for audience's choice awards this year.

My budget got shafted, and I'm afraid I don't have enough time to properly finish my audience voting experiment. :(

Submission deadline - Janurary 20, 2012 23:59:59 GMT-6

For those unfamiliar with how I run the contest...
  • I aim to show all the entries in several locations for the entire weekend.
    • Whether I can actually do that or not depends on the budget I'm given and/or if there's extra A/V equipment.
  • Finalists are screened on Friday evening and again on Sunday afternoon.
    • If, for one reason or another, my mobile AMV kiosks look unlikely I will try to extend my Sunday block to show all entries.
  • Winners are announced and shown right smack dab in the middle of the Masquerade (aka Cosplay Contest) on Saturday evening.
  • Entries are not shown in blocks according to their category (ie. all action entries, then all comedy entries, etc...).

As always, post/PM me or send an email to amv[at]animemilwaukee.com if you have any questions.

Now...go forth and AMV!

Just a friendly reminder that there's a little over 2 months left before the deadline. I've got more entries than I can count with one hand, but more is better.

Still looking for entries in each category (and surprisingly, romance is tied with comedy for least amount of entries right now).

Also, if you care to leave feedback on the contest form, please feel free to do so here.

Thanks guys!

As an update, I'm not able to get the equipment needed for my mobile AMV kiosks. Finalists will be shown on Friday, and my Sunday block is extended so I can show all the entries.

There's about a month left for people to submit videos, so let's have at it!
I'm still looking for more videos in every category, but comedy and romance need it the most right now.

Comedy is usually kinda bare, but I'm still kinda surprised that I only had 2 romance videos at the time of my last post. (I has 4 nao)

I can't remember if I submitted an entry yet.... :oops: I would hate to submit the same video twice so if you could let me know if I sent anything in yet I'd appreciate it. Sorry for the trouble.

This is the first contest I'm entering, I wasn't sure if the "standard" resolution you posted was the max or the minimum, so I uploaded two files to the ftp(the original 720p and a downscaled 480p). I hope its not an issue. o_o

If I had to say, I'd say 720x480 is the minimum.

Every entry is going onto a DVD for playback, which means that it will be 720x480 in the end. However, if I must change the resolution of entries I'd much rather downscale than upscale. I prefer 720x480 because it means less work on my end :amv:

I've already got your entry in the compilation, so no worries.
