Waimv Rules And Information 2012

Postby Rei_zero » Wed Dec 14, 2011 9:26 am

Bit close, plans fell through unfortunately.

I've been informed trophies should be provided for prizes this year, which makes me a very happy co-ordinator (if they fail to deliver I'll pay for them again, I'm tired of second-rate awards..)

__________________________________________________________________

Judging categories:

Possible categories: (these categories will be purely based on what the final response is like)
Best local talent - this category is for people in Western Australia.
Theme - For the best video relevant to the theme of this years convention! (Theme for 2012 is invasion)

Due to possible time constraints, not every video may end up being screened. unfortunately there will be no way to avoid this. however every video submitted, and deemed suitable, will be judged. any videos screened will be a random selection of all suitable entries.

This years competition is open to entries that be considered M rated (T on the ESRB system). however, please use discretion when submitting your entry to the competition as entries that are still overly graphic will be cut from the competition.
