Ok folks, here they are. AMV rules for 2010.
Theres a few subtle changes this year. so please go over them before sending in entries (I've relaxed a few stipulations and altered the categories section)
the deadline is set for this year, no exceptions in any circumstance as I will be compiling the screening early to complete testing properly.
if the MEP (multi-editor project) category gets a good response it may get extended for future competitions.
Keep an eye out for the WAIron editor rules (coming soon) and an experimental contest I'm working towards starting.
This competition is open to both international and national entrants.
All entries should be submitted by the 9th of January 2010. no entries past this date will be accepted. (postal entries must be postdated prior to the 9th)
There is a maximum of 3 videos per creator (multi editor projects do not count towards a creators entry tally)
All participants in the creation of the video must be included on the entry form
Videos should not contain overly graphic scenes (violence, sex etc..)
The committee and competition orginisers reserve the right to deny any video entry at any time, for any reason
Footage used within the video should be restricted to mostly anime and/or game footage. Videos with a higher proportion of game footage will be judged in a separate category.
Video length should be under 10 minutes. longer entries may be edited or dropped from the competition without notice.
Any videos entered into previous Wai-con events will not be accepted.
The judges decisions are final, no discussion over the decision will therefore be entered into by the judges.
All entries must be in a digital format, either submitted online or on either a cd or DVD. any discs supplied will not be returned after the event, so please don't send your only copy.
All submitted entries must be in either, AVI, MPG, WMV, MKV, MP4 or OGM containers only only, these included the following codec types:
DivX, Xvid, DV-AVI,HuffYUV,FFDshow
WMV (Windows Media Video)
MOV, VCD and RM (realmedia) Formats Will not be accepted
Audio can be either PCM (Uncompressed), Mpeg2 layer 2/3 format or LAME MP3.
Please submit your video in the highest quality possible, as this will be included in the final judging process. typically this is is at least 640X480 and larger for 4:3 format and 640x360 or larger for 16:9 format.
Committees Choice (Australian entries only are eligible for this category)
Possible categories: (these categories will be purely based on what the final response is like)
Best new local talent - this category is for people in Western Australia who have never entered before.
Miscellaneous - For the random videos that just don't seem to fit into anything above
WAI-MEP award - For multi-editor project entries only.
Forms will be handed out as people enter the room for the audience favorite category, these will be collected after the screening and tallied to decide the final winner.
Due to possible time constraints, not every video may end up being screened. unfortunatly there will be no way to avoid this. however every video submitted, and deemed suitable, will be judged. any videos screened will be a random selection of all suitable entries.
This years competition is open to entries that be considered M rated. however, please use discretion when submitting your entry to the competition as entries that are still overly graphic will be cut from the competition.
