Anime Boston 2016 - Winners Announced!

Post by LantisEscudo » Fri Nov 20, 2015 11:50 pm

Hey, everyone!

I'm happy to announce that Anime Boston 2016's AMV Contest is now open for entries!

You can find the rules here. Please check out the FAQ as well.

To highlight the changes we've made for this year:
  • New Category - There is a new Trailer/Commercial category for original and parody movie trailers, commercials, and opening sequences.
  • New Award - We've added a Coordinator's Choice award, which is open to all submitted entries, not just finalists
  • Collections of shorts no longer allowed - "AMV Hell" style entries are no longer accepted for competition
  • Shorter freshness period - The freshness period has been shortened to one year (from two years)
The submission deadline is 11:59PM Eastern on February 13th, 2016.

We look forward to all of your entries, and wish everyone the best of luck!

Hey, everyone!

Just a quick reminder that the deadline is only two weeks away!

We've got a lot of entries so far, but we're still low on Fun/Comedy and Other videos.

Thanks to everyone who's submitted so far!

And the rules for our Hentai AMV contest have gone up now, so please check that out as well!

I'm still new in this convention stuffs but the less than 1 year of freshness , does it mean the entries which previously already been uploaded on Youtube can be submitted?

That's correct, as long as it was first available to the public less than one year ago.

I thought it was based on date of completion (the only date the form asks for... and what it explicitly states in the rules).

Forgive me, I'm not normally that imprecise. Note to self, no more responding to threads before breakfast.

Yes, the freshness rule is based on the date you complete your video, but we can only enforce that using publicly available dates: either a YouTube upload date or the deadline of another contest. So if you finished a video and then sat on it for a year before sending it anywhere, you're technically in violation of the rule, but we can't prove that.

In practice, there's usually so little difference in time between completion and either upload or submission that it hasn't mattered.

Just curious, why do you care when a video is finished more than when it premieres? Like you said, that rule is unenforceable. :shrug:
