Setsucon 2018 AMV Contest Open Until 1/12/18

Post by mjtags11 » Mon Nov 20, 2017 5:34 pm

Setsucon is Central Pennsylvania’s anime convention, celebrating anime and Japanese culture since 2007. This upcoming 12th convention will be the first at the Blair County Convention Center in Altoona, Pennsylvania, from January 27th to the 28th, 2018.
-----------------------------
Whether you're a novice making an AMV for the first time or a seasoned veteran, we would love for you to submit an AMV. Awards will be given to the top AMVs.
AMV Contest Runs Until January 12th, 2018.
US Entries Preferred, due to prizes needing to be mailed.
----------------------------

General Rules:
  • By submitting your AMV entry, you grant Setsucon the rights to show your video at Setsucon 2018 and all future Setsucon events.
  • Setsucon is a family friendly convention, please make sure the content is suitable for all ages.
  • Anyone, both veterans and amateur video editors are encouraged to enter.
  • Multi-editor collaboration is allowed, but only 1 video submission per person or team.
  • AMV cannot have won an award at any other convention, film festival, or online competition as of the date of submission and/or been entered in the Setsucon AMV contest previously.
  • All videos must use anime footage, or video game footage, granted that the game originated in Japan.
  • Organization of the AMV contest and its judging will be based on the number of entrants and is at the discretion of the Setsucon staff.
  • Audio from any English Dubbed anime is not permitted.
  • Attendance at Setsucon is not required for contest entry, although it is encouraged. Attendance at the convention has no effect on your chances of winning the AMV Contest.
  • Setsucon Planning Staff may not enter an AMV into the Contest.
  • Any exceptions to these rules and other rules will be made on a video-by-video evaluation.

Hi! I have a problem with the submission form, particularly with the State/Province and Zip/Postal code lines. Since I am not from US, the form won't let me enter my own details, saying that I should enter valid values :( Is there a way to solve this? Or should I indicate a fictional US address? (joking) xD

I'd assume they were either there or only winners got emailed. C'est la vie.

...Crap, I completely forgot how I found out, and now I can't find records of it. Did I get the wrong contest?
