We teased you, you dreamed of it, we worked on it, you asked for it and here it is : Japan Expo AMV contest 2020 coordinated by AMV-France. Present in the convention each year, the association aims for its contest to be THE most memorable event of the year. To achieve it, we expect for a ton of videos thanks to experienced editors and ambitious outsiders entering in the contest !

If the Japan Expo 2020 convention is canceled or moved due to CoVid-19, the competition will still be maintained!

◄ Regulation in brief :
- Your AMV must be sent before June 7th, 2020, 11.59pm (GMT +2 Paris).
- The contest is based on exclusivity: your AMV shouldn’t be found online before the convention screening (on July 5th, 2020). Be it through streaming or download.
- Winner will receive an UNIQUE trophy from AMV France. Top 3 and Viewers’ Choice will each get figures as a prize. (Prizes can be cumulative).
- Considering the broadcasting takes place in convention, the use of pornographic or extreme violence clips can lead to an immediate disqualification of the AMV, the decision will be left to the jury's appreciation. Plagiarism of other AMVs is also a motive for disqualification.
- Video sources must be extracted from Japanese animation or at least be related to Japan. Video sources from video games and MADs will equally be accepted.

◄ Registration :
Registrations can only be made through this formular, until June 7th, 2020.

◄ Technical requirements :
- This year, you must show clearly the title of the contest: Japan Expo 2020. For this purpose, we provide a logo, and it is MANDATORY to use it.
Logo black background
Logo white background

You have the right to modify it the way you want (colors, 3D effect, pattern overlay...) in order to implement it to your AMV. However, it must remain legible during 3s.

- Video’s duration cannot be less than 1min30.
- MEPs are allowed.
- Video cannot contain subtitles, watermarks or logos which have no conceptual justification.
- It cannot contain broken aspect ratio, interlace or visible black bars during the whole video.
- Allowed containers are: MP4, MKV, AVI.

◄ Prizes :
The winner will receive an UNIQUE trophy from AMV France. Second and third will receive awesome figures, chosen for their quality but also, as much as possible, adapted to each winner! If you cumulate a top 3 and the Viewers’ Choice, you will win two figures!
If the receiver is not present the day of the convention, prizes will be mailed through the post.

◄ How to send your AMV :
The upload of AMVs will be carried through FTP. The host, ID and password will be sent by mail to the address given for the registration.
A tutorial is available by clicking here.
If you encounter any problem during the upload of your AMV, contact us with this address: concours@amv-france.com

◄ Organization of the contest :
- The contest is hosted by the association AMV France.
- The judgment of AMVs is carried out in two phases:
The preselections, which determine three categories: not-retained, “coups de cœur” (= favorites) and finalists.
The ranking of finalists by a jury composed of three renowned editors.
- Both finalists and “coups de cœur” will be revealed by pack, without distinction, a dozen of days before the start of the convention (2th July 2020).
- Not retained AMVs will neither be ranked, nor screened during the convention. The “coups de cœurs” will take part in a live tournament at the booth in convention. Spectators will vote with their voice and applauds and will thus make their favourite “coup de cœur” progress towards victory.
- Finalists will be screened on giant screen on Saturday 4th (not ranked) and on Sunday 5th July 2020 (ranked).
- A Viewers’ Choice will also be selected among the finalists. Votes will be collected on Saturday.
- Complete results will be available on the AMV France website, soon after the convention (5th July 2020).

I'm guessing it means that the rules posted are in English, a distinction that might be there since Anime Japan Expo takes place in France.
