2011 VCA - Custom Category Ideas For Nomination

Postby GloryQuestor » Thu Feb 03, 2011 6:13 pm

As with last year, we'll be collecting ideas for this year's custom category idea. Once we get all of the ideas in, I'll pick out the one category idea that will be adopted for this year's VCAs.

A few guidelines:

- Don't pick anything that you know will be there already. Check the earlier VCAs for information on what was there last year (excepting Best Storytelling, as that was the chosen category from last year and can be again this year).

- You can be as off-the-wall with your suggestion as you like, but keep in mind that I probably won't consider something that's way too crazy or way too subjective.

So, will it be Best Storytelling again, or something new? It'll be up to you to convince me! :D

AMV Lifetime Achievement Award


...what? We have Rookie of the Year, shouldn't we have something for those of us who have been around since The Beginning?

I still think we should have a best "other"
We can name it something far better though. (best strange) (AMV most likely to have come from bizzaro world)

The reason is this.

We have a category for pretty much every other check box on our filter list.
There is one for dance, one for fun, one for comedy, one for lipsynch, special effects, character profile, action etc.

but not one for "other"

Don't the videos that are cool and unique get their own chance in the VCAs?

Alot of category suggestions fail because there is no way to filter for such videos easily, but for the "other" category there is already a built in filter. There is no reason not to include these wonderful albiet strange videos into the VCA contest.

I'm with Todd on this one. Though Best Dinosaur is quite tempting too... :dino:

alright i got one.

Best Mesh
Videos where the anime(s) and song(s)/audio are so perfect a match they look like they were made for each other.

couple prime examples of what i'm talking about:





no idea if this would actually work as a category, but it is something i think about a lot when watching vids.

I like this one. It would be cool to have an award for people (like myself) that actually put serious thought into the title of their AMV.

I think that a better name for this category would simply be "best song / anime combination"

I also like the idea for a "Highest Replay value" category.
This wouldn't necessarily be the best video that you saw last year. It would be the video that you re-watched the most and replayed (not including videos that you only watched because you had to for various reasons: i.e. beta testing, contest screening, forced to watch, or simply couldn't avoid watching)

And lastly, I feel that we should keep the best storytelling category and permanently add one new category every single year from now on. So we could keep the "best storytelling" category from last year, and use this thread to add in one new category this year. If you did away with the Best Storytelling category, you will have a lot of angry ReggieSmalls supporters that already made their promotional posters :asd:

I was a betatester for Building Steam. I second this nomination just so I can vote for that video.
