Congrats to the finalist. This screen will take place Friday night at 7pm or 8pm. I will verify and post times of the screenings here later tonight.

Gene Starwind 21122

So you think your winning AMV is good enough to be call one of the greatest? Do you want to be the best? The best no one ever was. Then let’s put that to the test. If your AMV has won 2 or more MAJOR AWARDS then you can enter this contest. This is BATTLE OF THE GREATS! The audience will be able to see their all-time favorites on the big screen. Big name Editors, Big time competition. Does your video have what it takes to make the cut and win it all? Let’s see what you’ve got!

DEADLINE FOR THE CONTEST IS OCTOBER 20th, 2014 1159pm

(Why is our deadline 7 weeks before the con. Reason being is we have to getting the judging done and we want to make sure we can put together a high quality contest. Also this allows us extra time if we have to contact the editor for any last minute changes.)



Submission Form

You must include a separate form for each AMV that you submit.
The form should be nothing more then a normal .txt file that contains the following information:

- Title of AMV
- Full legal name
- Nickname, if applicable
- Mailing address
- Telephone number (including area code) - It is not necessary however if we need to get a hold of you immediately about your video this could be the quickest way of getting an issue resolved.
- Email address
- Song title(s), artist(s), and recording label(s)
- Name of source video footage
- Name of category you are submitting to

You must include ALL of that information before your video will be considered for the contest. If you are unsure about any of the information please look it up, as it is all crucial information.

To make things easier, we would prefer that you use the naming convention of “Editor’s name – AMV title” to name both your AMV and submission form so that we can make sure to keep them together.
(i.e. “John Smith – My AMV.avi” and “John Smith – My AMV.txt”).

Categories

Romance / Sentimental

Dramatic / Serious

Action

Upbeat

Comedy

(NO MYSTERY CATEGORY FOR THIS CONTEST! IT’S A STRAIGHT UP BATTLE!)

If you are not sure what category your video falls under select the one you think fits it best. We will contact you if we think that your video may be better suited for another one. You do have the choice of saying no I want to compete in this category as you are the editor. We will not make any changes without your permission.

Submission Format

All submissions must meet the following standards:
- 720x480 resolution minimum
- 29.97 frames per second
- Non-Interlaced video (Progressive)
-Please have high quality audio. If it doesn’t sound like it came from a CD or high quality from itunes then we are not going to accept it. Remember these videos will be played louder than what you would normally play them at home.

Any of the following encoding formats may be used, provided that they meet the above standards:

Video:
- MPEG 1 or 2
- HuffYUV avi
- Uncompressed avi
- Divx avi
- Xvid avi

-If you don’t have one of these formats I can probably convert it. Just make sure it is high quality as these videos are going to be displayed on an extremely large screen

Audio:
- Uncompressed wav (PCM)
- MPEG audio (mp3, mp2, etc.)

Rules

1) All entries *MUST* conform to the formats listed above.

2) A maximum of three submissions per person, one per category is allowed.

6) Dubbed sound from licensed commercial translation is NOT allowed. Please keep audio from the original animation to a minimum, remember this is a music video contest.

All prizes not claimed by December 7th,2014 will become property of the convention.

13) Copies of the contest will not be available due to legal concerns.

14) Nekocon is not responsible for lost, stolen, misdirected, or damaged entries, prizes, etc.

15) We reserve the right to reject any video for any reason at any time. Although unlikely, rules are subject to change. If any major changes are necessary to your video, we will attempt to contact you.

16) This is a given anybody on the AMV Staff can not submit to this contest but still can have their videos shown as non-competing entries. Other staffers will be permitted to enter the contest as the judging for these videos will be done blindly. Nobody watching the videos will have any knowledge of who made them. (That is unless the video is already online and they happened to see it before the screening.) :)

Any questions you can email me at amv@nekocon.com or genestarwind21122@yahoo.com for more details.

Good luck everybody and hope to see some great videos for this year’s contest.

There is no age limit for this contest. We want to see the best of the best to go against each other in this years contest. We do have a regular AMV Contest as well that will be shown twice. This one will only be shown once.

Thanks,

Gene

We still need more entries for this contest. It does not matter how old your amv is. It just have to have won 2 or more majors awards. We want to see the best videos go against the best. We want this to be the most amazing 2 hour contest that the audience will ever see. Some of the all time great videos we have seen from years past going against each other to determine who is the GREATEST!

It's an all out battle!

Let's do this.

Don't forget about Battle of the Greats. The only thing it takes to enter is to upload your video with the entry form, as long as your video has won 2 or more Major Awards. Such as Best of Category or Best of Show.

The videos can not be in the same contest. I should have put that in the rules because technically while a video that won 2 awards can be in the main since it has not won 3 and qualifies at the same time for Battle of the Greats. Oops. I'll have to remember that for the next time.
