Project OrgEditor Season 3 : The King of Spring

Welcome one and all to the third season of Project OrgEditor, a contest sponsored by AnimeMusicVideos.org, and yours truely, CodeZTM. It is time once again for editors across the globe to gather together and compete for the title of Project OrgEditor champion, and join our Hall of Fame, alongside champions of the past.

So let's get right into it!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Contest Information

Project OrgEditor Season 3 is a single-elimination tournament, where we start with a large group of editors, have them edit to a particular theme challenge, and the lowest scoring videos of each round are eliminated from the competition. We then repeat the process for a total of 4 rounds of competing until we are left with our final 3 competitors who will go at it in the final round to fight for the championship.

What will the themes be? That's a secret to all until the time is right! Though, here is a preview of your weeks to come:

Spoiler :
Note: The number of competitors listed is only an estimate. The numbers will be changed to reflect the proper number of competitors, though not to exceed 32 individuals. Dates will be adhered to, to the best of my and the judges' ability.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Contest Rules

Section 1 : Expectation of Entrants

Entrants are expected to compete in each and every round. Please DO NOT sign up if you do not have the time/energy to enter the competition. It is a weekly edit for 5 weeks, with only 2 days rest in between rounds for judging. If you cannot commit, do NOT compete.

Entrants may join as an individual or a partnership (not to exceed 2 editors total).

Entrants are accepted on a first-come first-serve basis.

Entrants agree for their videos to be used in future contest promotional material, with proper credit given to the editors involved.

Entrants are expected to treat other entrants with respect. Rudness/flaming/disrespect will NOT be tolerated.

Entrants agree that any violations of any rules will result in a disqualification from our contest.

Section 2 : Rounds

Entrants will compete in “rounds” of competition. There are five rounds overall, and each round will have a specific “theme challenge” that editors will have to create their videos in accordance with.

At the end of the judging for each round, the lowest scoring videos (in accordance with elimination numbers assigned beforehand) will be eliminated. Bonus points are awarded to the top 3 videos in each round. These bonus points will be applied to all future video scores in every subsequent round.

Each round of competition shall last for one week each. Videos are due by the end of the day (23:59:59 CST) on THAT day. To account for time zones, editors should contact me before each round to confirm when their video is due. Countdown clocks will be provided for your benefit. A few hours of consideration will be granted for uploading and time zones, if (and only if) I am contacted beforehand and given a SOLID time of when I can expect the video to be sent to me.

Section 3 : Content / Technical / Uploading

All AMVs entered into this contest must meet a-m-v.org standards of uploading. Meaning that if it cannot be uploaded to a-m-v.org, you cannot enter it into our contests.

Each video (upon completion) must be sent to me via a reputable file sharing service. You may NOT upload your video to the public until the end of the judging phase for that particular round. Videos will be shared with the public (anonymously) via the google drive system and their preview option.

Videos must be in the following formats:
Containers: AVI, MP4, MKV
Video Codec(s): H.264, XviD, DivX (5, 6 and 7)
Audio Codec(s): MP3, AAC,

AMVs must be less than 150 MB, unless an applicable reason is given otherwise.

Section 4 : Judging

Judges will be public, but judging will be blind. Videos MUST retain their anonymity until the end of the round to ensure this. Judges have been instructed to leave short comments regarding the scores given and their overall opinion of your videos. Also, if you're reading this, congratulations for actually reading the entire thread! Please note that you should put an icon/picture of a wizard in your registration post. Posts without wizards will not be considered.

Each video will be judged based upon the following 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?

Entrants may join as an individual or a partnership (not to exceed 2 editors total).

Would like some elaboration on this <__< Does this mean one person can edit one week and the other does the next? I'm confused.

No, it would have to be a collaborative effort on every video. Just a new option I'm trying out this year.

I think I might pass this year. Though, it is tempting to do the two person thing since it would mean I could get Niwa to edit, but I think I'll just watch this year. O:

Judge Pancake. :ying:

HEHEHE.

Good luck to everyone who enters this year! :up:
