Anime California 2018 AMV Contest *Winners Announced*

Postby Dvl-Jigen » Mon Jun 25, 2018 8:47 am

Anime California is once again accepting entries for its AMV competition!

Please be sure to review all of the rules below before submitting your videos. We can't wait to see what you will amaze us with this year. Good luck!

Categories
-Action
-Comedy
-Drama


AMV contest rules
Spoiler :
Please do not add bumpers or credits to your AMV. Any videos submitted with such will be disqualified.

No audio may be taken from an English dub.

No subtitles/fansubs are allowed unless you add them in yourself.

AMVs with poor audio/video quality will be disqualified. This includes Interlacing issues, audio quality/distortions, etc., etc.

No visible or noticeable studio watermarks may be included in your video submission.

Freshness rule: Entries must not have premiered before August 1st, 2017


Length: Please keep AMV video submissions over 45 seconds and under 5 minutes total in length. Any submissions over this length will be disqualified

Only three (3) entries allowed per participant. (One [1] entry per category, please)

We will not tolerate or allow any plagiarism (which is defined as “the “wrongful appropriation” and “stealing and publication” of another author’s “language, thoughts, ideas, or expressions” and the representation of them as one’s own original work). Any submissions that are found to plagiarize someone else’s work or submission will be removed from the contest and the entrant will be contacted by Anime Conji’s AMV Team to address the issue. During the review process the video submission will not be included as part of the contest or judging until the dispute is settled.

All entries should be AT LEAST 75% Japanese animation or game footage.

Please submit your final videos in the video formats listed below only. This will help us greatly with giving your video the proper amount of time for review and preparing it for the contest. Any videos that require us to edit or change settings will be disqualified.




Entry guidelines:
Spoiler :
Contestants may enter one (1) video per category.

Disqualification Rules:
-Videos containing portions of another editor's video will be disqualified and the submitter of said video will be permanently banned from all subsequent contests. Participants who submit videos that are not their own will also be banned permanently.
-Refusal to provide one's legal name will result in disqualification from the contest.
-All entries should be AT LEAST 75% Japanese animation or game footage.
-Bumpers, title screens, credits, or any other form of creator / footage / audio identification are not allowed: We will be adding custom title screens to identify each video so there really isn’t a need for them on your submitted files, so please remove them. If you're video contains bumpers/titles screens/credits/ect in the video itself (i.e. if part of the video and can not be cut) please make a note on your submission form and I will try to work with you to find a resolution!

No audio may be taken from an English dub.

No subtitles/fansubs are allowed unless you add them in yourself.

AMVs with poor audio/video quality will be disqualified. This includes Interlacing issues, audio quality/distortions, etc., etc.

No visible or noticeable studio watermarks may be included in your video submission.

Time Limit
-The running time for videos may not exceed 6 minutes or be shorter then 45 seconds.

Freshness Rule
-Your video must not have premiered before August 1st, 2017

Judging & Use
Videos will be pre-screened and judged prior to the convention. The judges reserve the right to move a video to another category if they feel it would be a better fit.
Anime California reserves the right to use submitted AMVs during the convention and subsequent Anime California conventions, regardless of Finalist status.

Due Date
-Competing AMVs and their submission forms are due by August 1st, 2018 at 11:59 P.M. PDT.

Encoding

I'll be sure to correct that, however the ballots have already been printed out, so I won't be able to make the change there.
