AnimeNEXT 2014 AMV Contest -- Winners Posted!

Postby Scintilla » Tue Feb 25, 2014 11:43 pm

Hi everyone! This post is to let you know that we are open for entries for the AnimeNEXT 2014 Animé Music Video (AMV) Contest. Being the largest independently-run anime convention in the New Jersey/New York metro area (over 10,000 attendees in 2013), AnimeNEXT is returning to the Garden State Exhibit Center in Somerset, NJ, for the weekend of June 6-8, 2014.

Contest Rules -- Entry Form (it's a nice shiny web form this year!)

Please be sure to read the rules in their entirety, as they have changed since 2013. For example, MPEG-2 is no longer the preferred file format.
Note that even if your video is not yet finished, you can still request FTP access by e-mailing amv@animenext.org .

Entries sent by post must be postmarked by APRIL 26 and received by APRIL 30. Entries sent via FTP must be completely received by the end of APRIL 26.

Here's some reasons to enter our contest:
  • We will ship certificates and prizes to the winners if they cannot make it to the show -- but NOT in breakable glass frames this year!
  • Medals for the winners this year -- see this post for sample photo!
  • All valid entries received on time (unless disqualified) WILL be shown at the convention, even if they do not make finals.
  • No maximum video length. Bring on the prog rock, classical, whatever!
  • The categories are not set in advance. If we have enough good videos in a genre, there will be an award for it. So send us your horror, your trailers, your upbeat, etc.!

We look forward to your entries! Please post here if you have any questions.

I just want to say something here since this contest is playing an important role in a future proyect:

-Thanks to the Last Con, I was able to find the remaining pieces to complete my proyect so you guys are being mentioned in that proyect, That I hope to bring to AnimeNEXT 2015
-I wish I could make an exclusive video for the Con, although I cant at the moment I will see if I can submit all the newest ones, including Prelude to Death III

All pending entry forms have been processed; please check your junk mail folders if you have not yet received FTP information. (I don't know why, but I got a huge flood of entry form notifications all at 9:30 this morning despite the forms actually having been sent over the past two days.)

And a special shout-out to our friends from Italy.

I just submitted 2 AMVs. I entered last year and it was a fun experience! I decided to try something different with editing this year and I am excited to see the results! Even f I don't get in I am excited to see what amvs will be shown! Good luck to everyone!

With one week left until the deadline, here's the list of ZIP/postal codes of contestants who have submitted their entry forms but have not yet sent in the actual videos (not counting the three people whose FTP accounts I just opened today); note that at least one of these codes is for Germany, not the USA:

(Morocco -- I couldn't tell if there was a postal code)
07840
08854
10522
10950
11776
20036
26541
37671
77063
77373
85225
93616
95833

If you see your postal code on this list and you haven't received an e-mail from me indicating that we received and checked your video, then please remember to get it in within the next week. Thank you.

That's fine, though I should mention one thing I forgot to earlier: we have quite the shortage of comedies at the moment. ^^>

(Yes, I know the categories aren't decided until after the finalists are picked, but I don't want to have to find out how the audience would react to a contest with no comedy category.)

Closed to new FTPs, but for those of you who've already sent the forms, only 4 hours remain to get those videos in!

As I type this, we are still awaiting 20 videos from 14 editors. I've checked and processed all the videos known to have been sent; so if you uploaded yours but haven't heard from me, then please e-mail amv@animenext.org to tell us it's ready -- or if you have, then check your junk mail.

I'm happy to report that the aforementioned shortage of comedy has been relieved; thank you all for making that happen. :)
