So, I'm getting a tremendous number of entries from Eastern Europe by people who don't seem to understand a few of the rules... If someone here passed the info of the contest around to the Russian and Czech communities, could they perhaps add some explanations about the rules that seem to be constantly overlooked... namely:

1) What the word "footage" means.
2) Acceptable footage for the contest includes commercially produced stuff, not videos you shot yourself.
3) What "PG-13 with no f-bombs" means.

I'm having surprising difficulty conveying this information through email, and it keeps coming up over and over. Never had this problem before with AAC, and the language barrier isn't helping.

-------------

On a contest note - We've gotten way more non-anime entries this year than this contest is used to. That's kinda cool. We can use as many quality entries as people want to send us though, so keep 'em coming.

P.S. I'm told by the con execs that the trophies this year are a lot nicer than they were last year.

I won last year and never received those trophies you mentioned :uhoh:

Well, about the russian community, we could talk in private about who's joining and have a talk with them about this... if you want of course, at some cases, it might be trolling nor really that they didn't understand the rules. I got the feeling I'm battling this year my mates since we didn't have any tournament this year, bringing the battle to Connecticon is going to be awesome :mrgreen:

About the contest, since I reached my limit for the competing entries, may I be able to submit a non competing entry with non-anime footage?

I don't really have time for non-competes this year. I shortened the time block to get times that weren't too early in the morning, so if there even is a pre-show its going to be a bunch of non credited fast things during seating.

For last year's trophies, you're going to have to talk to kiarrens.

People who want accounts should fill out their entry forms soon. People who haven't uploaded and were given account already should think about uploading. I'm going to spend a good portion of this weekend going through entries and sending out DQ warnings. Can't say for sure there's going to be time to provide that courtesy afterwards.

I have submission info for almost 80 entries so far. On paper "other" is the most under-represented category, but since the form allows people to choose "I don't know" as well, I can't say I have a firm grasp on the category spread yet.

We can always use more comedy, upbeat, and (I guess, maybe) romance entries too.

You registered for an account. Don't know if you uploaded yet though. Info came from my a-m-v.org email address.

Just an FYI--the Connecticon website says the deadline is June 12th, not June 15th. It would be a good idea to change that so other people don't panic like I just did.

The long and short of it is - the deadline was supposed to be today, but the first month the contest was opened for entries, the website said the 15th, so I'm honoring the 15th as the deadline. I can't change the website, as that apparently takes weeks to accomplish. If I could, I would have taken down "I don't know" as a category option and fixed it so that fun/upbeat/other was correctly 2 separate categories on the form like it is in the actual contest.

See the first page of this thread for more details.
