Postby ProjectBarcodeError » Tue Nov 29, 2011 12:51 am

G-Anime is proud to announce its AMV (anime music video) contest. AMVs are video-clips created by amateurs with scenes from Japanese anime and a soundtrack.

•Each contestant may submit only one AMV for the contest and another one for the Gamine Challenge.
•Multi-editor projects (MEPs) are accepted, but one of the members must be the representative and will not be allowed to submit another AMV. The other members may submit their AMV.
•The AMV must be recent, made in 2011.
•Contestants must submit two (2) versions of their AMV: one with the editor’s signature (that will be showed at the convention) and one anonymous, without logo or signature (that will be evaluated by the judges).

Failure to abide by the rules will result in disqualification.

Selection process
•Deadline for AMV submission is: 25th december at 23h59, east coast hour ( gmt-5).
•The deposit address on our server is https://secure.hyberia.ca/amv2012

•The AMV format must be NTSC, and its minimum resolution of 640×480 or 640×360 (a ratio of 16:9 is prefered).


Judging criteria
•The AMVs will be judged against the three following criteria:
•Editing: Technical aspect of the AMV: special effects, image-music matching, fluidity, etc. (40%)
•Quality: Cinematographic aspect of the AMV: music selection versus clips, presence of a narrated storyline, video consistency (40%)
•Creativity: AMV’s originality: unique concept, special use of specific elements, etc. This iswhat makes the AMV unique (20%)


Awards
Best of Show: to the editor scored the highest by the judges.
Public Award: to the public’s favorite at the showing.
Gamine Award: best AMV submitted for the Gamine Challenge.
Some category awards will also be granted.

The Gamine Challenge
In 2012, our mascot Gamine wants to celebrate G-AMV’s fourth year. She thus invites you to display your editing talents in another field than japanimation. She would like you to create an AMV with clips from the series Kaamelott. Who will be brave enough to attempt that?

Uploads start but never finish, instead I get a hideous red box that says, "Upload failed An error occurred."

Can you try again? By the time, I will ask what might be wrong to out tech. While I think of it, I thinkyou need to be on firefox while uploading the thing but I dunno if the prob comes from there.

@Warlike Swans, if you still have problem, feel free to fill in the form at http://7bit.in/e and put a web address were I can download the file (web locker or something else).

The upload form doesn't work in older browser since it uses HTML5* and not flash, It will work in a recent version of Firefox and webkit browser (Chrome/Safari).

*Actually, it's javascript. The XMLHttpRequest doesn't exist in all browsers.

Thanks, I think I'm OK now. Not sure if this is helpful information, but I was using Chrome during my failed attempts.

If there is any problem sending the amv, just like Elwillow said, put a web address where we can retrieve the amv IN THE FORM. We won't let some technical issue get us aren't we^^.
