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. ;)

Considering the rules say that an entry cannot contain audio from dubs, your entry would be disqualified...

In that case, might have to chop out whichever clips contain them.
Would be a shame but them's the rules...

I've made the case about that rule being a double standard, and Vic's made his case that it's his contest. But there are ways to work around it without running afoul of the rules. :)

In any event, I myself trying to get out one more fun video to send for AUSA. And I promise it won't break any of the rules. :)

It's a double standard that I can't help. We live in the land of the lawsuit.

You haven't asked permission from the other creators to submit this.

I explicitly do NOT give you permission to enter the clips Cygnet & I contributed to the Salad in any contest.

Yeah, I haven't been able to get around finishing a new video in time (surprise), so I just submitted Squid Girl Is Metal again. People liked that one, right? That, plus I don't think people would look fondly on a video featuring Foxy Shazam's "I Like It" song. Maybe Tigercon and/or Katsucon.

Also, I didn't confirm I was going to AnimeUSA on the form, because I'm still not sure whether or not to go. Money's been pretty tight lately, so I've been playing things by ear. Next month shall be the determining factor.

FWIW, I'd say that the AMV Salad comps should stand on their own merit outside of any contests. It's in that same vein that AMV Hell and plenty of fan parodies exist wherein they can be given their own showcase block. I, for one, do appreciate multi-editor projects like these are getting the following and opportunity to have specifically scheduled blocks of time.

The meaning of this, though, is that these works should not be buried amongst submissions that are vying for attention and different purpose. Besides, as the compilation producer already did his task to separate the chaff from the wheat, there was already somewhat of a contest in getting a good and decent finished product. I'm sure that flows exactly as it is supposed to be.

Right, that's my .02 and I will get off my soapbox now...

True enough.
It was just a thought anyway.
Then I thought about all the re-editing that would have to be done which would render it a poor representation of the project anyway.
Besides...14 minutes is probably asking too much. :P

I'm not Vic, but I believe international entries are acceptable. You don't have to be present at con for your entry to be shown. For the AnimeNext contest, we received entries from people outside the US.

Thanks for the reply! :awesome:
So, when I fill the form I should write my country instead of state/province?

Leave it blank. I don't believe I made that mandatory. And if it is, just put your country in again. If you actually win something, I ALWAYS double-check international addresses with the creator first, because I usually have no friggin' clue how to write them.

As an aside, the running joke has been that AUSA is the international AMV Embassy of sorts, because we get an unusually high number of international entries. We even got an entry one year where the entrant's mailing address was a battleship ._.

Got two Oct 5th deadlines, might as well add this to my list. I might submit Minmay as my other video since you don't have a maximum age limit...
