AnimeNEXT 2007 AMV Contest (Winners)

Postby VegettoEX » Tue Apr 03, 2007 8:43 pm

Hello, all! Two-month reminder! (quasi as of this writing!)

AnimeNEXT takes place July 6th to 8th at the Holiday Inn & Medowlands Expo Center in New Jersey. This is just a friendly reminder that the deadline for our 2007 AMV contest is June 9th, 2007. That's an "in-our-hands" deadline.

As always, you can find a full rundown of the rules for the contest on the website in both PDF and Word formats. For some more helpful reminders, though, here's our quick checklist from the entry form. Just keep in mind that it is a quick overview; you are expected to read the complete contest rules to make sure everything is in check. By all means, though, don't hesitate to ask questions!

Before you submit your video, did you remember to...
  • Encode your video as MPEG-2?
  • Add 2 seconds of black-space before and after your video?
  • Confirm there are no subtitles per the contest rules?
  • Remove all credits, title cards, logos, or bumpers?
  • Completely fill out your entry form?
  • Label your entry & case with contact info / video info?
Our categories, as they have been, will continue to be:
  • Trailer / Parody
  • Action
  • Drama
  • Comedy

We look forward to all of your submissions and seeing you at the convention!

By the way, is there a particular reason that MPEG-1 submissions aren't allowed? Not everyone is still within the 30-day trial period for TMPGEnc's MPEG-2 encoder or knows where to get a free one...

Sorry, missed this question :).

We've never had a problem with asking for MPEG-2 videos in the past; in fact, nearly every single video we've ever received for the contest *has* been an MPEG-2, which is one of the reasons we just went ahead and made the rule update.

If the trial of TMPGEnc is a problem, there are a couple solutions... you can buy it, or simply use a different computer (in the house, a friend's, etc.) to do the MPEG-2 encode.

Could I put an mpeg2 on my server and link it to you guys on the submission form? Kinda impractical to mail the entry, unless you want to see what the Evangelion stamps look like so badly :P

We will not be straying from the official rules put forth. There is still nearly a full month to mail in your entries, at this point. If any further concerns arise, do please let me know! Thanks! :)

One-Week Reminder!

The (in-our-hands!) deadline for the AnimeNEXT 2007 AMV Contest is next Saturday, June 9th. If you're looking to send to the contest, now is the time to do so! Don't forget that AnimeNEXT, which has spotlighted its TRAILER/PARODY category for several years, certainly welcomes your creations of this type.

For those of you that have already sent in submissions, every single entry received thus far had its response sent out as-of this afternoon. Be sure to check your e-mail and respond if necessary.

The official rules and entry form can be obtained over on the official website. Let me know if you have any questions. Have fun!
