I thought we had this discussion recently regarding money awards for AMV contests (gift card=money), and the potential problems (at least for us in the US) regarding copyright issues.

AMVs are in a gray area 'fair-use' wise as it is without money awards.

It's not a problem for me as I'm not entered here. How is it not s problem for the convention itself? Or do gift cards somehow not rate as profit?

I do not have the authority to discuss this matter. The only thing I can say is that the gift cards are donated by companies as prize support. AMA has not purchased these gift cards or any prizes.

Plus as Gene would say always go big in life.

OK. I was just curious. Maybe since they were donated as prizes it's alright then. I'm no lawyer. :o

I'm having some difficulties. This is the first year that we are trying to set up the FTP? I know I have been saying this but it should be up in the next couple of days. Hopefully at the end of the week at the latest.

That would be great Vlad. I'm not to good with setting up FTP servers. I'll try to work on one myself so I can have one ready next year and test it out with a few editors this year to see if it works when I get it up and running.

Thankyou once again.

Re: AnimeMidAtlantic AMV Contest 10 days left... FTP IS UP!!!!

Postby Gene Starwind 21122 » Tue May 19, 2009 9:03 pm

We really need to see those submissions. It is 10 days to the deadline and we still need some more entries. Submit a video and give it your best shot. Also it doesn't hurt to enter your video. You have a chance at winning a $25 BestBuy gift card for just entering. Plus if you win in the finals you'll get an additional gift card and a nice plaque to go along with it. This contest has been great over the past years and it is all in thanks to the editors for submitting their work. We need your help again this year to make this an awsome contest.

I'll be entering a new video; I've just got to re-render it letterboxed because I just noticed you needed 720x480. Do you have any issues if it's uploaded to sendspace?

No problem at all. As long as your video quality doesn't suffer.

We are starting to get some entries but would like to see some more. You all make the show, I'm just hosting it. Anime Mid Atlantic appreciate your help in participating in our contest and providing videos for the fans to watch.
