---

Kawaii Kon 2012 is proud to announce the opening for submissions to the Video Art Showcase Theater (VAST) Contest. We want YOU to submit your fan-made videos!

VAST Contest Rules, Short Version
(see long version of rules for full details)

Who can enter?
Anyone can enter the VAST Contest - attendance is not required, although encouraged. The only exclusion to entry is the direct staff of KK-VAST – all other KK staffers are allowed to submit an entry.

What can I enter?
Any video editing project may be entered by its creator(s). Entries are not limited to AMV’s alone – any work of original production video art is also allowed, which includes (but not limited to) live action, self-animated, and self-shot video work. Currently, there is no limit to the number of entries. The only exception to this are videos entered in previous Kawaii Kon-AMV / VAST contests - which are considered ineligible for entry into the 2012 contest.

Where can I enter?
There are two ways to enter the VAST Contest: snail-mail or via the internet (either thru public file transfer sites not requiring memberships to download or your own web hosting site). No entries will be accepted at the convention.

When can I enter?
Entry acceptance starts NOW!
Entry deadline is Midnight (or there abouts) on January 31, 2012 <-- PASSED, THANKS ALL WHO ENTRED
Winners will be announced at the conclusion of the KK-VAST Video Art Contest on Saturday, March 17, 2012

Why do I enter?
To win, of course! A 'Best In Showcase' will be awarded. Other prizes / awards may be included at the discretion of the KK-VAST staff, judges, guests, or the KK-VAST Director (meaning, me).

How do I enter?
Make a video, fill in the entry form, enter it and make sure it gets to us by the entry deadline – couldn’t be simpler. Preferred format is MPEG2 - other formats will also be accepted but they will be converted to MPEG2 on this end for display / archiving purposes. However, for the most control over how your video is displayed, it is suggest that you do your own MPEG2 conversion work.

Questions?
again, for full details, please see the long version of rules
Please post questions below in this thread, or email the VAST Director at kk.vast@gmail.com

Thanks again folks!

aieli_ileia: I had a dream that I was house sitting for Han Solo
aieli_ileia: and there was an AMV contest
radicalyue: xD
aieli_ileia: and they played the Cyrus Virus and it won something
aieli_ileia: and I set down my award certificate somewhere
aieli_ileia: when I came back from walking Han's dogs, the certificate was gone
aieli_ileia: and I was all sad nstuff
aieli_ileia: but then I found it next to some guy, and he was an artist and he'd drawn an entire comic strip about me being super-amv or some such
aieli_ileia: and I was like
aieli_ileia: THIS IS THE BEST AWARD I'VE EVER GOTTEN
radicalyue: That's amazing.
radicalyue: I need to visit your dreams sometime ;-)
radicalyue: Kawaii Kon kinda does that thing with the comics. They have an artist draw scenes from the winning AMV on the award. o:
radicalyue: Maybe you should enter there? ;D
aieli_ileia: I did not know that
aieli_ileia: but lookie here
aieli_ileia: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=106816
aieli_ileia: So now my dreams tell me things I don't even know
radicalyue: xD
radicalyue: Epic :3



Long story short, after somehow invading my dreams, Kawaii Kon will definitely have something new from me, made just for its contest. XD

Kyssifur: why thank you! We at VAST do try :)

l33tmeatwad: um... sure? No guarantee that it will be shown, but sure? send it in?

TritioAFB: woo, surprises, we likes surprises. Please do save time to edit!

Ileia: well, yes, that was one of the original ideas for an award (get a local cartoonist to draw a customized award per the video) but it has never been implemented. Hmm... maybe it's time to resurrect the idea? And Thanks Yue for pointing Ileia our way :)

Vlad: yes, as Judge Holden put it last time, "Enter VAST and win some WOOD!"

Can't wait to see what comes in guys! Thanks for making VAST what it is!

Hey everyone - this is your 2 month deadline alarm
ding ding ding ding

Just a friendly reminder to all - Kawaii Kon is a month EARLIER this year, so consequently the deadline for entry to the VAST is also a month earlier. So enter, enter often, and enter soon!

Thanks everyone!
