I remember getting my first amv award ever from Anime Banzai XD. Getting the trophy in the mail was a real confidence-booster for me to continue making amv's. Sure, I'll send ya something :)

I was wondering about the submission format that says No AAC audio; All of my current amv's are h.264/AAC, and a lot of editors are doing that lately. If there's a way for you to accept AAC, it might make it easier to send you entries. I can switch to mp3 or PCM, but it's just a thought ;)

Common guys, send me stuff.
It doesn't matter if you've entered you AMV into other conventions.
I also need more comedy videos.

I'll try. I'll check out the rules and formats and everything now. All my AMVs so far I have sent have not made any finalist lists... <_< So I am reluctant to send some stuff...

Btw, what's the cutoff time for the video? I have one I'd like to send, but it's 6 mins and 30 seconds...

Nevermind, found it...
The Rules

Updated: 7/10/08

1. Each video will be limited to a maximum length of 7 minutes. Any submission that exceeds the time limit will be disqualified.
That made me very happy....I can now send my full video without cutting out a chunck of it. =3

If submitting an MPEG-2 file, is MPEG-1 Layer II audio also acceptable?

Can we send in an MPEG-2 file encoded as anamorphic widescreen (with the 16:9 flag)?

For the audio, what bit depths and sample rates are acceptable/preferred?

I'm a total noob when it comes to online file transfers, but... if I wanna send by FTP, where do I send it to? I sent to Otakon FTP because it had a server to upload it to...what's the server for this contest?

Yes you can send MPEG-2 16:9, with DVD spec sample rates in AC3 or MP2

We could not get our server up in time for this years contest. Next year hopefully.

You can either mail me a copy on a cd/dvd or use an online file hosting service like Megaupload or Rapidshare. Or if you have a web/ftp/sftp server you can send me a link. There are places on the entry form for linkage.
