Anime USA 2017 AMV Contests --Winners Posted Third message First Page!

Postby Freki » Wed Apr 12, 2017 11:17 am

Welcome to the 2017 Anime USA AMV Contest. The AUSA AMV staff welcomes you to this year’s convention theme of Christmas in Japan! The last three years have been a blast with our AMV Halloween themed contests, but this year the convention will be held in December so the theme of the AMV contest will likewise be Christmas themed! We will have a Nightmare, Naughty, and Nice Contest Themes! The Main contest will be the “Nice AMV Contest”, and what was our horror contest will be the “Nightmare and Naughty Contest”! It is our hope that you enjoy creating your videos for our contest, as we look forward to viewing them! This document describes the contests, events, rules, entry process, video and audio specifications, and panel submissions for the 2017 convention. Welcome to this year’s contest!

This year’s events are as follows:
The NICE AMV Contest: This is your standard AMV contest, and any AMVs submitted to this should be for a general convention audience. I would say be aware of the potential for people under the age of 15 to be in attendance. Any AMV disqualified due to content will be shifted to the Nightmare and Naughty Contest or an After Hours showcase depending on the editor’s wishes.

The Nightmare and Naughty Contest (18+ content allowed): This is the new face of our Halloween/Horror contest from the last two years. Try your hand at being naughty or giving nightmares! Violence, gore, nudity and language restrictions will be lifted. Please note rule #2 covers the lessened restrictions.

AMV Showcase: AUSA AMV Staff will choose videos that did not make the final cut. If an AMV is disqualified but it falls within the rules of the main contest, it will be shown here time permitting. You may also request to have a video go directly into this showcase. The AMV staff will determine what content will be placed in this panel. Videos going directly into the showcases will not count against the amount of videos allowed for the submission in the contests.

AMV After Hours: 18+ content allowed, allows for more violence/gore, some nudity and some offensive language but not in extreme amounts. This is not a contest but a place where you can have your videos shown if you wish if your video(s) contain mature content. We will automatically shift any video submitted to the main contest that cannot compete to these showcases unless you wish to enter them into the Naughty and Nice Contest.

AMV Panels: Do you like AMVs and want to share thoughts you have about them? Do you make AMVs? Are you an AMV Judge at another con? If you wish to discuss AMVs then apply for a panel spot! The AMV Coordinator will inform anyone of accepted panels, and the panel times. These panels are for anything to do with AMV's, your top 10, your best editing tips, your best tips to have AMV's judged well in contests. if you wish to have 18+ content please inform us on your panel submission. You do not need to be an editor to present a panel.

Fan Parodies: We will show some parody movies at AUSA again this year, we will update this section with the ones we will show as we make those selections. If you know of a fan parody you would like to have shown or you made one yourself let us know!

Anime USA 2017 AMV Contest Rules:

Submission deadline: October 24th, 2017 by 11:59pm. (FOR ALL FORMATS)

1) Each person/studio may submit up to 3 AMV’s in total for the Nice AMV Contest. 2 AMV’s in total for the Nightmare and Naughty Contest. No matter which contest you submit you may only have one AMV per category.
*NOTE*: If you are part of a studio, you may submit AMV’s either as yourself or as the studio. You are still limited to the submission limits of each contest no matter which association you apply to each video.
2) The Nice Contest (The Main Contest): No nudity, offensive language or excessive violence or gore. The audience for this will be a general, all age audience!
The Nightmare and Naughty Contest (18+ Allowed): These rules are relaxed somewhat, still extreme amounts of gore, violence, nudity, sexual content or language can be cause for disqualification from the contest.
3) Videos may not be more than 1 year old upon the date of its final submission to the contest, nor have won 3 or more category or best in show awards from separate contests. We must keep new ideas coming forward and give everyone the best chance to enjoy winning or participating in a contest. (specific judge awards are not considered)
4) Ensure your Video is between one minute and six minutes in length, exception is the trailer/parody category where the minimum length is 30 seconds.
5) You may use footage from video games, anime, Japanese live action and you may even use stop motion footage you created yourself*. Your AMV must contain at least 50% from Japanese video games or Japanese anime. You must conform to the general audience rating with all footage no matter where you get it from.
*Exception is the Live Action Category where you may use sources of live action and it is not restricted to only Japanese live action content. To qualify for this category you must have more than 60% live action content.*
6) Dubbed audio from licensed content is not allowed. You may record your own dialog but you cannot take the script and read it!
7) Do not include any subtitles from your original sources. You may however add in your own as long as you do not just copy the subtitles. Game footage and Live action content are included in this; you must have a clean capture.
8) Do not include any bumpers or credits for your video, Title cards will be made by the AUSA AMV Staff to introduce your video, even if it does not make finalist as we may be showing it in our overflow showcases. I want you to get the exposure if possible. If you want to place a buffer at the beginning or very end of the video of 2 seconds or less in total, you may only do so with black screen, this 2 seconds will not be considered part of the video length.
9) Do not use any commercial studio logos or other forms of watermarks that you did not create yourself as a parody of said logo or your own logo. NO FORM OF REFERENCE TO THE MPAA ITSELF WHAT SO EVER; you may however parody the formatting of the screen just do not name the MPAA look to the following video for an example of how to do it correctly: “http://www.animemusicvideos.org/members/members_videoinfo.php?v=197392”. Do not try to cover up watermarks with your own, we do see these, and repeated violations of this rule may be enforced in any way the AMV staff and Coordinator deem appropriate, up to and including permanent banning for contest and/or showcase submissions.
10) With the exception of the parody/trailer category, excessive narration or dialog could be grounds for disqualification.
11) Submissions should not contain unaltered video from your audio selection’s official music video. If this is seen even in sections of your AMV it may be grounds for disqualification.
12) Attendance to the Convention is not needed to enter, our request to know if you will be at the convention is for our informational use only. We love calling people up and handing you your prize in recognition of your hard work! Please come to the convention if you can!
13) Anime USA is not responsible for Lost, damaged, misdirected, or stolen submissions or prizes if one needs to be shipped.
14) AUSA AMV Staff and any Judges are precluded from entering this AMV contest. (This means AUSA staff can submit to this contest if they wish).
15) We reserve the right to reject or disqualify any entry for any reason; all rules here are subject to change and will be applied equally to all submissions once posted. An FAQ will be posted if it seems that a rule is ambiguous. Some AMV’s may be disqualified from the contests but may show up in a showcase this is at AMV staff discretion.
16) All submissions must be attributed to an entry into the Google Docs form for contest or showcase submissions. There are separate Google Doc forms for each type of submission. The File name MUST match exactly to the name submitted in this form!
17) All submissions become the property of Anime USA and will not be returned and may be used in panels or showcasing subsequent to the actual contest airing, proper credit will always be given to the editor if it is used in any form what so ever.
18) All decisions by Anime USA’s AMV staff are final.
If you have any questions please feel free to ask, as I strive to answer any question put to me no matter how trivial it may seem, by emailing: Jon.Webb@AnimeUSA.org

There may be other awards given at the discretion of the AMV staff.

Hey everyone! just thought I'd remind you all about Anime USA's contest, we are starting a bit later than usual and running later because the convention moved to a different date this year! If you're in the creative mood make a new AMV in the spirit of the convention's theme and time frame... "Christmas in Japan"! we have lots to offer any AMV Editor out there! a main contest (All Age Ranges) that is entitled the "NICE CONTEST"! We also have once again our Horror Contest and since it's Christmas themed it is entitled the Nightmare and Naughty Contest! (this is for the 18+ crowd). Also don't forget the Showcasing, I am working on the google doc form for this it wasn't giving me the right links to allow showcase entries yet but as there is no judging of the videos these can be submitted even close to the convention! I hope to see you all there! Come one! Come ALL! previous entrants and NEW entrants! we look forward to seeing your work!

It is now June!!!! we have been slowly receiving AMVs! Keep up the great work! I appreciate those that have sent in their submissions so far for the main contest! However we have not received any horror/naughty submissions for the contest yet, please let me know if there are issues getting to the submission vector for the nightmare and naughty contest!

Hey everyone! I thought I'd give an update! we are receiving submissions, slowly but that is expected as the contest has only been open for three months with another three to go! I am confidant that there will be some GREAT AMV's this year and I can't wait to start judging them and my staff are also on edge!

I want to remind everyone that this year we are accepting live action AMV's and this is the time to show your want to jump in and do what you all do best! Let your friends know that we take AMV's without regard to when they premiered, nor do we require any type of secrecy. The some of the biggest requirements are that it is 1 year old or less at the time of last submission so the ones you used for that convention in decemeber... or even november last year can be submitted to us so don't worry. I will say please don't submit ones that you submitted to us last year! I just realized that was not in the rules here and as such later this afternoon I will be editing the rules to include that. (no one that has submitted this year has done this so far so I doubt you'd have done it but I know there are people out there that might try it! hehe.)

Oh remember this year's convention theme is christmas in Japan, as such the main contest is called the "Nice Contest" and the horror/adult theme is the "Nightmare and Naughty Contest"! Editors and/or Studios may submit up to 3 (one per category) in the main contest and up to 2 (one per category) in the horror/adult themed contest! Please remember if you submit as part of a Studio (multiple editors) it does count for you as one as well as the other editors and you would have one less remaining!

Thank you all for the last three years and I look forward to making this fourth year a blast just as good or better than the last three!

I'm excited to see the AMV set to a Les Friction song. There was one great one for the past 3 years. They're one of my favourite bands. It's really good to see a great amv set to them, especially a new album came out

Hello everyone!!! there is just over one month before the submission closes. (oh at this posting i have a needle in my right arm so only one handed typing and thus i might make mistakes!!) I have seen a great number of amvs come in, and we are doing great!!! i have not had a chance to contact everyone that i have your file yet but i have seen a great number of entries. awards this year may be different this year due to budget constraints but i look forward to judging all of your videos. @miricale_falcon, I have seen the entry and will let you know when i have it in the directories.

Thank you all for submitting, one category has recieved no luving... that is the live action category, i still am holding out hope for a good group of entries for it!

Folks! we are 21 days from the end of submissions on the 24th of October! We have had a GREAT many submissions! I am going to be going through them tomorrow to make sure there are no issues. I do have a few I need to contact the editors but I love it! Thank you all in advance and to everyone else that has yet to submit! you've made it a GREAT year ALREADY! THANK YOU!

The one category that is not getting much love is that of the Live Action. I want to clarify that, there is no restriction on 50 percent Japanese origin, and as long as more than 50% of the footage is live action it will be accepted, better rules will be put into place for next year for this category. The other group that is not getting much love is that of the Nightmare and naughty contest! we've got 3 submissions for that! Remember this contest does not affect the main contest submission categories... you do NOT have to have nudity or violence to enter a video into this category! this contest just lifts the limitation of the general audience restriction (if you must know the main contest tries to not get anything that is more than PG-13 in it and the horror contest is the equivalent of a Rated R movie) and we will move videos that are found not to match the idea of the main contest to the horror contest but we will not do so if you, the editor does not agree to this move!

Thank You ALL for this year so far!!!!!!

Shori, on a case by case basis. the rules are ambiguious in this regard and there is no time to edit or change them. Since there is no live action category in the nightmare and naughty contest it will be allowed on a case by case basis. if you wish to submit two to the naughty category that will be fine and i would be contacting you about it anyways so go ahead and submit. (wish this would notify me of replies like it used to! hehehe

We are that the TWO WEEK MARK EXACTLY! well about 15 minutes from it! videos keep coming in!!! and I am stoked! you guys are there! bring them in!!!!!

Please note editors are allowed to enter both contests to the maximum number of entries for each contest (3 for the main and 2 for the horror/nightmare and naughty).

Editors are allowed to and encouraged to send in submissions for showcasing if you desire (non competing videos) which will be shown outside of the contest times in the AMV room with title cards for you! please bear with me but for now a text file needs to accompany the video submission to my direct email (you can link your sendspace, your drop box links in the email or attach the video to the email either way!) I will post at the bottom here what is needed for us to showcase with title card. the videos need to be labeled if it's 18+ or not, but the rest is all the same. videos may be older than 1 year if you want to bring something you did a while ago, or last year (if it is your video for our contest last year, i still have it archived and the title card is already made) and can be longer than 6 minutes if you wish but realize due to time constraints I may not be able to put a 10 minute video on (just an example)
