Aniventure 2015 AMV contest

Post by NAKAMA.BG » Wed May 13, 2015 4:43 pm

Hi everyone! Club Nakama is proud to announce its 10th Aniventure AMV contest – anniversary this year!

Aniventure is the biggest annual Bulgarian anime convention. Last year we had 5000 visitors, and hope this year to hit a record 8000! This year we are celebrating 10 years Aniventure and we hope to have a great AMV contest! Aniventure is two days long and the AMV contest is during the first day. The festival will be held on the 5th and 6th of September 2015. We have a website where you can check out the conventions and photos from previous editions! http://aniventure.net/en/ , and also a great after video of the 2014 festival, so you can get a feel of what it is like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4M1olREaXg .

Your submissions have to be sent to amv@aniventure.net by the 28th of August. The deadline is final and will not be prolonged.

Here are this year's rules to participate: they have been a little bit updated, please read them carefully!

Categories :

Action
Drama
Comedy
Le Wild Category


Technical rules:

1. There must be at least three clips in each category. If there aren't enough entries, the AMVs will be distributed in the other categories.
2. Each contestant can participate with three AMVs altogether but not in the same category. No more than two AMVs from one contestant can be in one category.
3. There are no limitations of the length of the AMVs, but the judges will decide if they are allowed to be projected to the public on the day of the festival.
4. The AMV must include at least 70% anime or footage from Japanese video games .
5. The AMV must not contain inscriptions, watermarks or captions which are not related to Aniventure 2015 or the creator himself. This includes text or logos from televisions, other contests and events.

Atatched here you will find banners for Aniventure, that each contestant must insert as an intro to his AMV together with the AMV’s name. The banners can be edited in any style the contestant wishes. The intro must not be longer than 5 seconds. This rule is mandatory for each AMV, so it can be allowed to compete. Differences in the quality of the intro and the AMV itself will not be taken into account, it is enough for them to be put together.

6. Hentai materials, subtitles or watermarks ARE NOT allowed. Materials with high levels of violence or gore will be judged by the jury if they are suitable to be shown on screen.
7. The AMVs must not include subtitles, unless the creator has purposely put them in the AMV.
8. The AMV must be created after September 2014.
9. FORBIDDEN file formats are: FLV, OGM, SWF, 3GP, WMV, MKV, VOB, DV.
10. Audio stream quality – minimum 44.1kHz, minimum 192kbps.
11. Minimum picture size – 640x480 (4:3) or 640x360 (16:9).
12. Maximum size of the file 500 MB.


By entering the contest with one or more AMV’s the contestant agrees to the following rules:


I. Enrollment form is sent to amv@aniventure.net, by filling the following information:
Personal name and surname, nickname of the participant:
AMV/AMVs title
Animes used
Music used
Category/categories
Link for the AMV*
Adress and Contact details (e-mail)

* We do not accept links for AMV's from Youtube, Vimeo, Daily Motion etc.! Please send links for direct download i.e. from Google Drive, Dropbox and other upload sites that maintain the original format of the video.

II. The AMV, in the exact form that it is sent, can be used by club Nakama to be projected at other events organized by the club after Aniventure 2015, without asking permission of the creator. The club is obligated not to change in any way the AMV and to display information on the nickname of the creator, unless specified otherwise in the registration form.

III. After the festivals has ended all AMVs entered in the contest will be uploaded to a torrent tracker for the viewers to download. If the creator does not want his AMV to be included he has to specifically inform us when sending his form to participate. All such requests must be made before the deadline for registering.

IV. Together with the uploaded AMV’s will also be provided information such as the nickname of the creator, which song is used and which animes are used. Phones, emails, addresses and any personal information will not be disclosed to the public. All participants must note in the registration form if there is any other information they do not want announced. All such requests must be made before the deadline for registering.

V. The time set for the showing of the videos to the public is an hour and a half. Because of this time limit the jury will make a preliminary selection of the best AMVs to be sown to the public. Those which do not qualify to be projected to the public will be uploaded together with all other AMVs after the end of the contest.

VI. If the AMV does not comply with some of the rules the creator will be informed in the shortest period possible to make the necessary changes and to resend his AMV. This will have to be done before the deadline ends. Otherwise the AMV will not be allowed to participate.

Awards:

We urge the AMV creators to attend the festival and be present for the announcing of the winners and awards, but naturally for those who are out of the country and are unable to attend club Nakama will send the awards at our expense.

The organizers of Aniventure 2015 can change and add rules to the AMV contest at any time. It is the AMV creators duty to inform himself of the changes. For questions and suggestions please write to amv@aniventure.net

Le Wild Category is a more free category for AMV's that do not fit any stereotype and have something wild, uncommon, psychedelic or wacky. Videos that do not fit the other categories also go to this category.

Disregard. The banners opened up in Vegas.
No matter what, stay calm, stay cool and live life to the fullest.
Plus as Gene would say always go big in life.
