As a heads up, when I tried to look at the contest rules I could only see a huge chunk of unreadable text. Is there something wrong with the PDF?

And I was just wondering, what do you mean by "anime-styled or manga-styled content"?

Hmmm.. I see it fine.. let me know if you still have issues and I can send you the PDF version...

As for "anime-styled or manga-styled content", that we will accept footage that is based on Anime based animation even if not from Japan (this includes things like RUBY, etc. i.e. footage that fits the spirit of typical anime)
