Postby ahinton » Sun Sep 01, 2013 6:33 am

Hello everyone. This will be the official Ohayocon 14 AMV contest thread for the Ohayocon forums. If there are any questions out there for the contest or for the exhibition, you may post them here or e-mail them to amv@ohayocon.org and I will try and answer them as soon as I can. Remember that all questions on the forums will be viewed by others so if you want your question private, it is recommended to e-mail it.

Below are the links to the rules and the registration form. Registration is now open. It will close up at the end of December.

I want to take this time to thank everyone for their interest in the Ohayocon AMV contest. And I am looking forward to a great contest this coming year.

Posting here to keep the thread alive. As of this post, registration is open for another two months. I would also like to post a promotional video for the contest if you want a quick idea of the contest. Hope you enjoy it.

You are allowed up to 2 entries. The entries must be in different categories from each other. Also if you are part of a MEP, and you submit your name in the MEP entry, that counts as one for you.

Hope that helps.

I am planning on January the 12th or within a few days of that date. There is still a month left for submissions and video registration. On that subject, I am still in need of videos from all categories. I do have plenty of drama submissions but I can still take a few of those.

Hello again. I would like to reach out to those with AMVs that won lots of awards this past year. You video won't qualify for the contest (assuming it won 3 or more awards) however, there will be an exhibition showing at Ohayocon which can also feature award winning AMVs from the past year. If anybody out there has any AMVs that meet this qualification, I would love to show them at the exhibition. I do ask that you register the video to officially show that you have given the permission to show your AMV. Also, I shoe the AMV during our first annual (I think) speed editing contest.

Other then that, registration ends at the end of day Dec 31st.

Thanks.

The 2 entries limit, dose that include the exhibition? Or the limit only applies to the contest portion?

How soon would a prize have to be picked up by the proxy?
I can't be there so I'm asking a friend to show up in my place, in theory if I won, I don't want him to miss any of his plans for me so I want to know if he can come by at the end of the day, or the last day of the con, or if it has to be during the contest.

Pretty strict but are allowed some blood. As you probably know, in anime, blood coming out of a person's nose is used for comedic effect. That I have no problem with. I will accept some form of stabbing so long as it is kept brief. I don't want to limit creativity, but the best answer I can give is it needs to be PG-13. If it looks beyond that, I can't accept it.

Hope that helps.

In the rules, I mentioned the phase, "Otherwise, all other rules will apply in submitting the exhibition showings." This does include exhibition. I might change that for next year depending on how much interest there from the editors side as well as the audience side. But for now, the answer is yes, the limit applies to the exhibition showing.

Hope that helps.

Any prizes awarded will be done so at the awards ceremony on Sunday. So the proxy would have to be present then. Hope that answers your question.

Is there a schedule of events posted yet? I assume it's probably too early still for a final schedule, but I'll need to adjust my airline flight accordingly.
