Yaoicon 2012 Deadline Extended - Call for entries

Postby The Wired Knight » Tue Sep 18, 2012 1:22 pm

The yaoicon 2012 deadline has been extended till October 5th 2012. This is a full two week extension (I cannot extend it any longer since the contest is the week following that).

Due ot the contest rules gettin posted late on the website (late by a full six months which is why I posted them here) I have a SEVERE shortage of entries this year. So I need whatever I can get so please let me know if you intend to submit or can assist in submissions as I am heavily short on videos this year.

Please note that videos do not have to be yaoi based - you can submit via the theme this year which is The Far East which means anything pertaining to the history of east asian countries (think Sengoku Basara or Fushigi Yuugi). The only rule otherwise is that we do not accept videos that feature Male x Female relationships as this goes against yaoicon policy.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Ok this plea is now desperate. The AMV contest, due to the rules not getting posted till four months late right now has a FRIGHTENINGLY low number of entries, this is now at a red alert point and I MAY have to cancel the contest due to the shortage of entries (it would just become an expo showing at that point - this is the backup plan).

So I implore everybody to reach out and send entries within the next two weeks and/or contact other editors who have entered before to please send something to the con.

I know this is yaoicon and not yuricon, but would you take a female x female video?

We can't, that's one of the steadfast rules (video particularly would not go over well with the crowd).

This may be a silly question but, when you say MPG are you including MPG4?

Yeah, mpeg4 is fine, reading mpg is a relic of the older years that I've left as a catchall for all mpeg formats since.

Hmm.. I've still got the lossless file of House of Cards. It's already pretty old (from February) but as there are no rules restricting that I could help out and send that amv :P

Just a copy-past of my post from the contest rules' page.

When I have uploaded my vid to file hosting I should only send the DL to coordinators, whithout any additionals notes?

EDIT: And one more question. May I upload my vid to http://www.mediafire.com ?
