King of Spayn, if you are not familiar, is a week long AMV contest, starting on New Years Day at midnight and going until 11:59pm on the 7th, that is unlike any other. The twist is that instead of using your normal anime sources you edit with other Editors’ AMV’s and various other fun items to create a video to gain the title of KING OF SPAYN!!!. Now it is not a complete free for all there are rules:
- Music must be a foreign song! (and not Japanese, thats like cheating.) If you have a question about which language your country speaks, reconsider language choices. Instrumentals are 110% not allowed.
- Videos must comprise 75% of others editors AMV’s! (25% other random stuff. Really here anything goes. We've seen it all from carebears to hardcore gay porn)
- Time Limit of 8:00 per video (Use as you best see fit!) in the past there have been some obnoxiously long videos, no more. Make it watchable and enjoyable, but most of all funny.
- Just one week to edit!!! editing starts at midnight on 1/1/13 and goes until 11:59pm 1/7/13. You then have 24 hours to render and output all of it. (this was posted a bit late so if you're in an effected time zone just offset the difference into render day and contact us regarding.) Honor system people.
I will set up a drop box for entries.
Starting in 2011 the "kings rule" was added. This means every year the king gets to make a new rule so long as doesn't interfere with the base rules of the contest.
- The reigning king judges or appoints judges.
- The reigning king decides and distributes the prizes
This year you are fighting for the coveted King of Spayn title belt and crown.
We don't have time this year to be fancy, so just drop videos in my gdocs shared folder here:
Your judges, like it or not:
And submissions are closed! Good luck to all of the entrants.
Results to be posted soon. This will be a close race, lots of great videos!
