Hello all, I'm here to announce the AMV Contest for Tora-Con at Rochester Institute of Technology! The convention will be held on campus (located in upstate New York) April 20-22, and the contest is on the 21st. The deadline is April 6th! Please visit our official website at [url]toracon.rit.edu[/url].
The official rules should be viewable on the site soon, as well as the entry form. I'll post again once they are, but I'll give the gist here: Pretty much any AMV between 30 seconds and 6 minutes in length with a PG-level of content (there are kids as young as six here. They start so young now...) is eligible, so long as it is no older than two years (before the date of the contest) and has not won two or more other official AMV contests, and is also not clearly using clips from an illegal source (TV watermarks, subtitles, etc.) The categories are Drama, Action, Romance, Comedy, and Dance/Upbeat/Other. You can enter up to two videos, so long as they are in separate categories.
Still, please read the official rules once they're up.
It's a two-hour show at a convention of about 2500 attendees, so we need all the entries we can get! I can't wait to see what you send in! If you have any immediate questions about the contest, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
