This post is to announce that my contest is seriously HURTING for some entries!! Please enter.
Read my initial post about the contest here
I really need some entries here, guys. I don't have a lot, and at this point, the awards are going to be way too easy to win with so few contestants. Send in ANY videos. Go to the MTAC AMV website
for instructions on how to submit videos.
Remember, you don't have to attend the convention
to enter the contest, and the video does not have to be new
, as long as it has not screened at a previous MTAC so there's no reason not to gave it a try.
In addition to the options listed on the website, I will also accept videos submitted via ftp.
I can't guarantee that the server will be infallible, but you can certainly try it. E-mail me after you send the video, so I can check for it on the ftp server and make sure it arrived intact. The server is lostboy.dynodns.net (port 21, of course, for ftp), and you can log in with the username "upload" and the password "upload". Please don't send uncompressed files. Use one of the recommended compression methods on the mtac website to make it a manageable file size. My server only has about 6 GB free right now, and when it fills up, I won't be able to accept any more videos via FTP.
If you DO use the ftp option, I still need you to send me the info requested on the online form
(see the website). Just include it in the mail you send, and be sure to tell me the filename that associates to the form. This is all common sense stuff, of course.
So please send your videos for the contest now. Any video you have made in the last year or two will be just fine. I don't care if it has shown elsewhere, as long as it hasn't shown in a previous MTAC contest.
E-mail me if you have questions or need clarifications.
