Most important changes compared to 2016's rules:
1) We now accept certain non-Japanese anime sources. See the rules for details.
2) No pitch-altered music tracks unless there is an obvious artistic reason for it.
3) File size requirements is now just a recommendation, but there's repercussions for ignoring it.
4) Our Technical Standards have been clarified to give a better idea of what kind of flaws we flag.



The rules: TL;DR Edition!
If you read nothing else, please at least read these.
  1. You can send us a total of NINE(!) videos this year, but only in the following combination:
    1. You can send one Action, OR one Drama, OR one Sentiments video. Pick one only.
    2. In addition, you can also send up to three Rhythm, Fun, or Humor videos (any combination is okay, but no more than three total).
      (Please don’t try to sneak in your extra Action/Drama/Sentiment videos as Rhythm/Fun/Humor. We check.)
    3. And in addition to that, you can send up to five Trailer Parodies, TV Commercials, or TV Intro parodies (in any combination).
    4. 1 + 3 + 5 = 9 videos maximum.
  2. If your AMV publicly existed prior to Oct 3rd, 2016, we consider it an old video and won’t accept it.
  3. Don’t use source material that has studio logos, watermarks, or subtitles. Avoid using text, and don’t put in anything that breaks your anonymity.
  4. Don’t send enormous files. We allow AMVs up to 250mb, which is HUGE. If you feel yours needs to be larger, we'll still take it (within reason), but we will re-encode to fit that size limit before we send it to the judges (this is bad). If you need advice on how to properly encode, feel free to ask.
  5. Do your best to preserve visual quality. We play these on giant movie theater sized screens that magnify every imperfection. Test your video in full-screen on the largest TV you can find, not in a YouTube window on your laptop.
  6. Read our Technical Standards. Understand what we consider to be imperfections and learn how to avoid them.
  7. Do not pitch shift your audio. This isn't necessary for us. We’re not YouTube.
  8. We now also accept certain non-Japanese “anime” as sources, so long as the show is made in the typical Japanese anime style. If there’s a source you think might fit this, contact us for approval.
  9. Read ALL the rules, not just this short list.


Thank you, and good luck!

Holy CRAP is this thread late, but here we go! Actually, we've been open for submissions for over a month now, but between prep for AX and prep for SakuraCon (whose AMV event our team also helps with), we're busy as hell. Lots of fun stuff happening!

I'm pleased to see that we've already got a good flow of videos in for 2017. Please keep them coming!

In fact, because we're so crazy busy this year, I IMPLORE you to please submit your videos early.

I know that a lot of editors love to submit their entries at the last minute, but seriously, having to inspect over 150+ videos over a single weekend (many of which were sent to earlier events and had not had any changes at all) is devastating. It puts the already fragile schedule of the event at risk, and we just don't have any time to waste this year (unless we start making the deadlines even earlier).

So please, if your video is ready, please send it early. Thank you! :)

Like an hour ago I was talking to someone wondering when this thread was going to go up. o___o Good luck!!

Hoping to have my videos done in the next week or so, so it's not another sliding-in-at-the-last-minute thing. ^^;

Yeah... basically, we're nose-deep in prep for SC, plus a few unforeseen things (but good in the long term) on the AX internal side caused us to get a late start in some respects. It sucks that SC runs so close to the AX deadline this year, but it is what it is. Once we get back from SC, there'll be zero rest for us as we shift gears to focus on the inevitable AX flood, which is why it'll help a lot to get videos in early.

Awesome, just submitted the form. Never entered a contest but since I finally have an AMV done I might as well, maybe I'll even have another one done in time.
