Kumoricon 2017 AMV Contest - WINNERS UP!

Postby MinetChan » Sun Apr 02, 2017 3:25 pm

Hello everyone! We are pleased to announce that Kumoricon 2017’s AMV Contest is ready for AMV submissions!

Please follow this link to reach our online rules/submission page: https://www.kumoricon.org/amv-contest

After a very successful first year at the Portland, Oregon Moda Center, with new and improved AMV programming and the most amount of AMV submissions ever received at Kumoricon, we are thrilled to continue making this one of the greatest AMV venues in the Northwest.

We also wish to thank Vlad Pohnert for his time and effort assisting us and hosting some of our newest AMV panels. We couldn't have made our growth possible without his support.

To spice things up this year, we have TWO new categories: FAN FICTION and GUILTY PLEASURES!

We are also pleased to announce yet another opportunity to be involved. We are opening up online submissions for one of our newest events from last year "AMV Battle Royale!!!"

We are looking for 4 qualified editors interested in editing in front of a live audience. This year we anticipate a larger turnout, as well as more amazing prizes!

If you think you have got what it takes, please follow this link to read more: https://www.kumoricon.org/live-amv-contest


We are so excited to continue hosting some of the best AMVs and AMV programming in the Northwest — and it's all thanks to you that we can make this possible. We look forward to seeing what you create!

Let the Games Begin!!!


__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Here are this year’s rules! They can also be found on the Kumoricon AMV Contest page.


CATEGORIES:

There are SEVEN categories for the 2017 contest:

UPBEAT: We're looking for fast-paced fun.
INTENSITY: Action, suspense, conflict, triumph, and despair!
DRAMA / SENTIMENTS: Give the audience the feels!
COMEDY / PARODY: Weird. Funny? Surprising!
COMMERCIALS / TRAILERS: Short, sweet and to the point!
FAN FICTION: Rewrite the anime. Make your wildest dreams come true!
GUILTY PLEASURES: Delightfully annoying and cringey. Take the worst of pop culture and make it great.


***CONTENT IS PG-13.
We try to run a clean show. This includes NO themes likely to insult
or disparage by race, social class, religion, ethnicity, gender,
or sexuality - because that's NO FUN for anybody.


CONTEST RULES:

ANIME: are Japanese animated productions featuring hand-drawn or computer animation (Video Game footage is NOT anime).
You MAY include NO MORE then 10% (of total duration) of non-anime (as defined above) video.

TV station logos ("bugs") and other commercial indices must be obscured or removed.
Bumpers for non-commercial indices such as studio names, creator names, and promotions for other AMV contests and AMV download sites are
permissible.

Parody uses of commercial logos are acceptable.
No Source Subtitles allowed. Intentionally added Subtitles are OK.

No more then 4 entries per person, with no more then 1 entry per Category.
MAXIMUM FILE SIZE: 330MB.
MAXIMUM DURATION: 5:00 minutes.



HOW TO SUBMIT:

To submit, you MUST UPLOAD your file to the Kumoricon Submission page.

Your FILE NAME must include your AMV TITLE
Acceptable file formats are: avi, mpg, mp4, and mkv.
DO NOT send mov, rm, or wmv files.
Physical media (such as by mail) is NOT accepted at this contest.

*** By Submitting an AMV, you grant Kumoricon and the Kumoricon Coordinators unconditional permission to use, copy, share and show that AMV.


DEADLINES:

Entries MUST be submitted by 4:30pm Pacific Daylight Time (UTC 23:30) on 01-September-2017.

A panel of judges will convene to review all entries and select up to SIX AMV’s per category. The judges' decision on the playlist is final.
All entries must have premiered or been created NO EARLIER than January 1, 2015.
Entries that have been finalists in previous Kumoricon contests are excluded from the 2017 contest.


PRIZES:

Each category will win one prize chosen by audience voting.
The audience will also choose a Best of Show winner.
The judges may make a Judges' Choice award, Technical Effects award, and the coordinator's may award an Honorable Mention.
Therefore, between SEVEN and TEN prizes shall be awarded for 2017.

A prize is usually an anime DVD or BluRay, a manga or art book.
