When you've trolled every contest, you have my permission to die.

And no, there is not rule against trolling since this is a small con. You just can't send in something that made finals at AUSA in previous years.

One of the first contests I've seen in a while that didn't have a 6 min length cap. I will probably enter this year because of this.

Otakon hasn't had one since 2010 either. The audience just gives you hell for going over if you do ;) AUSA actually has a pretty strong tradition of giving 1st place awards to long-ass videos, which is surprising since both cons are audience-voted.

Well, provided I don't retire this video by Ota next year I can look into sending it in there as well.

I am trying to submit a video over the FTP and I can connect but when I try to upload it keeps giving me an error of "Critical file transfer error after transferring 262,144 bytes in 1 second" I am using the same FTP account that I used for Otakon if that means anything.

you are trying to upload to the root folder (which doesn't actually exist). You need to put your file in the "upload" folder.

Well I feel kinda stupid, thanks for that, I have submitted my video now.

Hypothetical question...if I entered AMV Salad 6, would that mean it couldn't be exhibited during a panel?
It's a multi-editor project...would that be allowed?
Also, it's around 14 minutes in length minus the end credits...too long?

At 14 minutes, it had better be the greatest thing since Great came to Greatville if there's any chance of it getting in. If you wanted to recompile only YOUR contributions to the project (I think Doomimus did this last year) you're welcome to give that a shot as you might have better luck getting in a shorter video. I have no problem with it being shown elsewhere at AUSA, I can really only govern my room, which has it's schedule already locked down.

Hmmm...I'll send it to you and let you be the judge.
If it's scored out of the finals or it's decided it won't be included, life goes on. ;)
