Project Editor : Tag Team Trials (PE:TTT) is a bracket-styled team tournament that will pit teams of editors from around the AMV globe against one and other to attempt to find the very first team of Project Editor Champions! 16 teams will enter, but only one will leave with the crown.
Each match will be a regular team-styled 2 week iron chef match, but with the ever lovely Project Editor twist. Each match will have both teams editing a "theme challenge", which will require them to edit their AMV in different ways. Creativity is the key.
The contest will take a break from November 5th-12th
to accommodate the AMV France Contest for contestants to enter if they so choose. More information will be given as it comes available.
The grand prize is a $100 Amazon gift card that will be split among the team members equally.
If you have any questions, you may contact me via pm here on the forums.
-----Contest RulesSection 1 : Team and Contest Information
All AMVs must be a team collaboration. Meaning that individuals cannot enter the contest, and AMVs must be a collaborative effort. HOWEVER, if you are an individual that would like to enter the contest but do not have a team, you may still sign up for one of the 2 reserved teams in the contest that will be assigned to individual editors.
There are only 14 spots open to teams
, and 2 spots open to individuals who wish to enter the contest without a team
and who will be randomized into the two teams (limit 5 per team).
Teams must be composed of at least 2 members
and no more than 5 members
. The only requirement for individuals is that they have an active a-m-v.org account. Contestants of all nationalities, skill level and communities are invited to compete. Judges, theme staff and coordination are not permitted entry, but a-m-v.org administration/moderation are permitted entry, granted that they do not fall in the previous catagories.
Teams are available on a first-come-first-serve basis.
The competition will officially begin on October 12th
. Section 2 : Matches
Upon starting the competition, each team will be sorted into a bracket
based upon a random number generator.
From there, the matches will begin. Each match will have its own individual theme that the two rival teams in each match will be required to edit their AMV by. The teams will be scored and the winning AMV with the higher score will advance along the bracket. 8 matches for the first round. 4 matches for the second round. 2 matches for the semifinals, and naturally the last match will be for the championship finals.

Each video will be judged based upon the following points related criteria.
Concept: 20 Points
Visual/Audio: 20 Points
Sync/Editing: 20 Points
Theme Challenge: 20 Points
Overall: 20 Points
Concept: If the video has a point to it. Is it 3 minutes of footage slapped onto a song, or is there a purpose behind the editing? While it doesn't necessarily have to have a story, it should still have a purpose/theme behind it.
Visual/Audio: Technical aspect of the video. 10 points for visual and 10 points for audio. Is the footage as clean as it can be? Is the audio as script and clear as can be? Please be sure to take note that older sources will not be penalized for being an old source.
Sync/Editing: How well the video was edited/synced to the music. Does the video and music work well together? Did the editor actually edit the video?
Theme Challenge: How well the video addressed the theme challenge. Does the video attempt to take the challenge into account, or is it just a video for the sake of being a video?
Overall: How the video comes together as a whole. Does the editing/sync, the theme challenge, the technical qualities and the concept meld together well?
Find a group of 2-5 friends to form a team. 16 teams will be sorted into a bracket by a random number generator. Each match (composed of 2 teams each) will have a different theme that they will be required to edit their video by. Everyone will get a flat 2 weeks per match. Videos will be judged and the winner of each match will move on to the next round of competition.
