Animania Con Ja Nai XII Contest

Postby Kalium » Tue Oct 04, 2005 9:14 pm

With the success of last year's contest, the rest of Animania has been convinced to let me run an AMV contest once more.

Most of the rules are unchanged from last year. Sorry about waiting so long to launch this, but I got the go-ahead and found out how big a timeslot I have two days ago.

The full rules are linked at the bottom (contains submission information), as well as the submission form.

Perferably, submit the video via ftp . Snail mail is possible, but less reliable. NO VHS TAPES!

Because resuming uploads is a little tricky with the server and settings I'm using, incomplete uploads will be deleted automatically. So if your upload is interrupted, you'll have to try again. Sorry. Also, once you upload, you won't see the file on the server, just so you are aware.

Formats: In short, if I can play it, it's all good. But be reasonable, please. I don't want to deal with multi-gig HuffYUV submissions, OK? MPEG and MPEG2 are fine, as well as DivX, XviD, or other common codecs in an AVI are fine. I'd prefer not to have to handle Makostra or Ogg files. Also, I'm not about to handle Quicktime or Real files. Please note that I may transcode the videos if they don't playback properly or if they are in a problemtic format (for me) like Ogg or Makostra.

Content Guidelines: If it's Org-friendly, then it's fine. Anything else is subject to potential rejection.

Submissions: I would prefer relatively new videos, OK? Be nice, and be reasonable.

Contest itself: The categories are action, comedy, drama/serious (includes romance), and the generic other.

Deadline: October 26. I know it's close, no need to remind me about that, it's not my fault.

Awards & Prizes: There will be a winner in each category. Other awards may or may not occur as the judges see fit. Prizes are more likely this year than last, but not certain at this point.

The event itself will be on October 29, in Ann Arbor, on the campus of the University of Michigan. More details on the rest of the event will be made availible as it nears and as it's planned.

The full rules (including submission information) are here, and the submission form is here.

Folks, just a reminder, there's not a lot of time on this. It would look very bad if I didn't start to get more entries soon (more than current one entry).

Please?

You should fix your rules Kalium your post says that the contest is on the 29th but the rules say the videos should arrive before the 30th. I would feel sorry for the poor fellow who got it in on the 29th after the contest had aired.

Oops. It's supposed to be the 26th. Thanks.

Anyway, my connection appears to be stable now. Should be possible to upload.
