Project Org Editor 2022: Rules & Information

What is Project Org Editor?
Project Org Editor is an online AMV tournament held over the course of 2 months. During that time, participants compete in week-long preliminary rounds by creating AMVs that adhere to specific themes. Submitted videos are then judged on their portrayal of the theme, creativity, editing, and overall enjoyability. After the preliminaries, the top-scoring participants will then compete in the finals to determine this year’s Project Org Editor champion.

How does it work?
There will be 6 non-elimination preliminary rounds and 1 single-elimination final round. Editors can participate in as many preliminaries as they like, but are encouraged to take breaks, and skip rounds as they see fit. To be eligible for the finals, editors will need to participate in at least 3 preliminary rounds, and their top 3 scores will be added together to form their total score. The 5 participants with the highest total scores will then compete in the final round to determine the winner.

Prizes
The competition is hosted on AnimeMusicVideos.org, and receives prize sponsorship from MomoCon. The 1st place winner will receive a $100 cash prize, the 2nd and 3rd place winners will receive $50 and $25 respectively, and $25 will be awarded to preliminary round videos that receive Judges’s Choice awards for a total of $300 in total prizes. The top 5 participants and recipients of Judge's Choice awards will also receive a 4-day membership to MomoCon 2023.

Round 1 Challenge
Image
20 years ago, Disney celebrated Halloween by producing a direct-to-video animated movie called "House of Villains". During the film, villains like Jafar, Cruella de Vil, Ursula, and Hades teamed up to take over Mickey's House of Mouse theater club and threw the heroes of their stories out into the street. And so In honor of its 20th Anniversary, the round 1 theme of Project Org Editor 2022 shall be Villains!

To satisfy this theme, you must create a character profile AMV that centers around a villain or anti-hero. You're allowed to choose a character that isn't actually a villain within his/her canon universe, but your video must present them in a villainous light. The villainy of the character(s) that you choose should be the core concept of your video, and so your AMV should clearly demonstrate why we should regard them as a villain.

Round 1 Deadline:
Sunday, November 6th @ 11:59PM ET

Submitting Your Video:
When finished, please upload your video to a reputable file-sharing service and submit it via this google form. Google Drive and Dropbox are the preferred methods of uploading your video, but please ensure that the URL you send is a “shared” or “public” link. Note: YouTube or ”streaming only” links will not be accepted. You're free to publicly share and upload your video before the deadline, but be aware that doing so may help your opponents. Also, If you finish early and feel that your video doesn't need any more tweaking, you may submit it at any time before Sunday, November 6th @ 11:59 PM ET. At the end of each round, all the submitted videos will be made available to the public to stream on google drive.

Round 2 Challenge
Image
For round 2, you'll need to create a video that combines multiple forms of media. Whether it's Live-Action, Manga, Cosplay, or various animation styles (Western, Japanese, CG, Stop-motion, etc), you'll need to edit a mixed-media video that utilizes 2 or more types to become something new. Please keep in mind that Live-Action sources are allowed only if you also combine them with a form of animation. Sources that naturally contain multiple media types are also allowed, but you'll be judged on how creatively YOU either combine or cut between them. So simply creating a multi-source or multi-media video might not be enough to satisfy the theme. Some Examples of videos that portray this concept are: Otaku Paradise, Great Responsibility, Cherish, Something Like This, It's Strange, Shanghai is so fun and Paperheart.

Round 3 Challenge
Image

Rugrats was an iconic animated television series that focused on a group of toddlers named Tommy, Chuckie, Phil and Lil, Angelica, Susie, Kimi, and Dil. For 9 seasons, it showcased their imaginative adventures and used the challenges of children learning about and misinterpreting the world around them as a common theme. It even received a sequel series called "All Grown Up!", which focused on their adolescent years and common issues of preteens and teenagers.

For round 3, you'll need to create a video that highlights the wonders and struggles of being a child, and the inevitability of growing up. With that in mind, simply using footage with children protagonists may not be enough to satisfy the theme. Some Examples of videos that portray this concept are: Turning Out Red, Gadget Escapade, The Creationist, Yearbook. and Dream the Impossible

Round 4 Challenge

What kind of Pokémon are you?
How do you do the things you do?
Share with me your secrets deep inside.


For round 4, you'll need to create an AMV that embodies one of the 18 types of Pokémon. Using footage of Pokémon isn't required to satisfy the theme, so the core concept of your video should be the characteristics of whatever type that you choose. The full list of Pokémon types can be found here: Pokemon Types Wiki

Please note that although you're allowed to select multiple Pokémon types as your theme, doing so isn't recommended.

Dungeons & Dragons (commonly abbreviated as D&D or DnD) is a fantasy tabletop role-playing game (RPG) that allows players to design their own unique characters that then become their identities during the game. They do this by picking characteristics like species and alignment and assigning ability scores, which consist of Strength, Constitution, Dexterity, Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma. The game also utilizes a luck factor by requiring players to roll various dice to determine outcomes.

Round Challenge
For round 5, you'll need to create a video that embodies one of the 7 ability types from Dungeons & Dragons. Showcasing the gameplay or fantasy elements of D&D isn't required to satisfy the theme, so the core concept of your video should be the characteristics of whatever type you choose. You'll only be able to select a single ability type on the submission form. So even if your video features multiple, you'll need to prioritize one type over all the others. The complete list and explanation of all the ability types can be found here: Dungeos & Dragons Ability Score List
