If you have any questions, please let me know. :)

KuroKiiro Festival III (2011) Anime Music Video Contest

The following are the contractual rules for KuroKiiro Festival's Anime Music Video Contest. All videos submitted for the purpose of entry into the contest are subject to the following terms and conditions.

The AMV Contest awards this year are for the Top 3 Audience Favorites, Best in Show, and a separate award for the Contest Coordinator's choice.

If the overall submissions' play time is larger than can fit in the appropriate contest time slot, cuts will unfortunately be made. Keep in mind that video selection for the finals will be determined on qualities such as technical aspects, effectiveness of the video and general execution. You do not need to attend the convention to enter the contest, although it is highly encouraged.

--------------------------------------------
AMV CONTEST GENERAL RULES
--------------------------------------------

- All videos must be received postmarked if sending by mail by November 10, 2011. If using an FTP or electronic sharing site link, please e-mail your submission information, as required below. The absolute deadline for all FTP submissions is November 15, 2011.

- As this is an anime music video contest, the majority (approximately 51% or more) of your video must contain Japanese anime or Japanese videogame-related media (that originated in Japan) and 80% of the music video must contain music or song.

- There is a time limit of 30 seconds minimum and 6 minutes maximum. Anything beyond 6 minutes may be acceptable at the Contest Coordinators' discretion only.

- You may submit a maximum of three videos.

- AMV Contest video entries must have been created after November 1, 2010. Qualifying submissions that have won awards during the submission period up to the convention will be allowed to enter. In order to provide freshness to the contest, videos that were previously submitted to past Tekkoshocon AMV contests are excluded from entry in the KuroKiiro Festival AMV contest. Videos from the Sangawa Project AMV Contest may be entered into the KuroKiiro Festival contest, provided that the video qualifies under the content rules listed below.

- No watermarks in the video will be allowed. This includes the DivX logo, any television station bugs & logos, AMV studio logos, etc.

- No video will be accepted with "hard subtitles" (subtitles permanently overlaid on video), nor will we accept videos from bootleg or fansub releases with these subtitles. The only EXCEPTION to this rule is if you create your own subtitles as an actual part of the anime music video.

- Because of the nature of the video judging, KuroKiiro Festival Staff are allowed to enter music videos into the contest.

--------------------------------------------
AMV CONTEST CONTENT RULES
--------------------------------------------

The convention is accepting material appropriate for general audiences. Therefore, the following content is restricted to the Contest Coordinator's decision:

- Innuendo or other situational humor that could be considered offensive
- Violent scenes deemed not excessive

and the following are banned from the contest entirely:

- Any and all language swear words;
- Excessive violence and bloodletting scenes (i.e. those found in Berserk or Elfen Lied);
- Nudity;
- Graphic Sexual Situations;

All submissions are subject to the Contest Coordinator's review and approval. By submitting your video for review, you agree that all decisions made by the Contest Coordinator about your video are FINAL.

--------------------------------------------
TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS
--------------------------------------------

The following video formats are the only formats that will be accepted for submission to the contest, in order from most preferred to least:

- MPEG-2 Video with MPEG-II Layer Audio (.mpeg, .mpg)
- Lagarith Lossless Codec encoded AVI (.avi)
- H.264 MP4 format (.mp4)
- DivX / XviD in AVI format (.avi) encoded at the highest quality possible (Quantizer 1 is most preferred)
- Quicktime format (acceptable, but not recommended)
- Windows Media format (acceptable, but not recommended)

(Please note that since all video will be encoded to MPEG-2 format for playback purposes, it is highly recommended that you encode your media files to MPEG-2.)

Any file format not mentioned above will not be considered and immediately disqualified. This includes MPEG-1, Real Media, or the use of any codec other than DivX, Lagarith, or XviD. If all fails, contact the Contest Coordinator and we can try to work out an acceptable solution.

It is preferable to use a frame rate of 29.976 or 23.976 as all videos will be played on a NTSC projector. All other frame rates will be converted to the preferred ones.

We are still looking for submissions for the KuroKiiro Festival AMV Contest. There's still plenty of time to enter--deadline is November 15th for online submission. :)

btw... if you're someone who's just starting out in AMVs and might have that first or second video around, we certainly would like to see your video. One of the ideas behind KuroKiiro Festival is that it is a forum for learning, and we are still a pretty small contest with a limited general audience, so we would definitely like to give your first or second video a look. If we just happen to get enough of them... ;)

Alright than, I may be new to making AMV's but I will submit mine.
Also should we have video credits or will you create title cards like AUSA does?

We create the title cards for the videos, so any credits will be trimmed out of the videos if present.
