Haha, the AMV contest has rules for Anime Expo. Interesting that the FAQ is fourteen pages but oh well. Some changes that seem for the better here and there. Deadline is postmark of April 29th so better get cracking.

Looks like they're taking it a bit more seriously this year.

I hope another paper airplane gets stuck in the screen again... hehe :twisted:

I can guarantee you that comments like those will win you beaucoup negative points with the staff, and they do read this list.

If there was a collaboration vid would it take up 1 spot from each person, or one spot from one person, or none and be on its own? This is not the same studio btw.

It takes up one for the studio and one for each person.

AX2003 Anime Music Video Competition Rules

Anime Expo Rule #3:

-----
3. Only three (3) Anime Music Video Entries are allowed per team, studio, group, or person. Entrants wishing to compete both as a team, studio, group, or individual can only have a MAXIMUM of three videos. For example, group A, group B, and yourself have created Music Videos for submission. You have now reached the limit of videos allowed for submission. Any subsequent submissions will be immidiately disqualified. Abuse of this rule will not be appreciated or tolerated.

-----

Let's say you decide to team up with a friend to create a group called ABC studios. Even though there are two people, ABC studios may only enter no more than 3 videos. Or, you may enter one joint video under ABC studios, and you and your partner may enter 2 videos separately.

On your submission form, for the joint vid you'd state in the name box: "ABC Studios - Joe Otaku, Jane Otaku". For the independant videos, you'd say "Jane Otaku" or "Joe Otaku". Do NOT write "ABC Studios - Jane Otaku" or "ABC Studios - Joe Otaku". If you make reference to your studio name, it counts as a studio video.

Oh, by the way, don't forget to remove studio references in your intro trailer as well. I've heard that in previous years a group tried to put one over on the staff and submitted 4 videos. On the submission forms they used separate names for the videos, but the group name was still on the intro trailer. The staff was nice and accepted the first three and DQed the 4th, but they could have just as easily been hardlined about it and DQ all of them.


By the way... before anyone asks, no I am NOT acting in any official AX capacity, nor am I an official member of the AMV staff.

Hmm, that kinda sux, I mean its better to just take ur name off the group one, and have them enter it as their own, so it doesn't take a spot per person. As for big projects, no one gimme credit if you enter MI :O

I've never entered the AX contest. It might be time to try.
