SacAnime AMV Contest Info:

The SacAnime AMV Contest will take place both Friday and Saturday night in the “Panels A” room. Come laugh, cry, or “awwww” at the great entries from our talented contestants, then fill out your ballot to vote for the winners! If you are interested in submitting an AMV, please be sure to read through all of the rules and submission guidelines.

General Guidelines

There are two types of AMVs we will be accepting: Competition: Videos submitted for consideration of an award. Competition entries may only be submitted by SacAnime attendees with any badge. (Friday, Saturday, Sunday and/or Weekend badges.

Exhibition: Videos submitted only to be played for the audience, but not considered for an award.

  • Submitting a video does not necessarily guarantee that it will be played during the AMV Contest show. We will be attempting to show all videos submitted, However, priority is given to Competition entries, and if we are running short on time, Exhibition entries will be cut first.
  • Be are aware that mistakes can be made, both on the editor’s end and our own. Be sure you have given yourself enough time to be able to work with us to correct any such mistakes before the con begins by not waiting until the last minute to submit your video.

 


AMV Contest Rules:

  • For “Competition” entries, you must be a registered attendee of SacAnime. Can have any badge to enter the competition. Friday, Saturday, Sunday, &/or weekend badge to be eligible for a prize.
  • You may submit up to THREE (3) videos to this contest.
  • Each video may be up to five minutes in length.
  • Have the video format be WMV or MP4. AVI is fine, but it will have lower quality.
  • No live action. Has to be a type of animation and/or gaming. PG-13 rating.
  • A 70-30 split. Meaning 70% anime & 30% of something else. Example: If you want to add a cartoon show with it, but mainly anime.
  • No vulgar language, extreme violence, or extreme sexual themes. We do understand that this is a an anime con, and some artistic content will be permitted, but the AMV staff reserve the right to disqualify any video they deem in poor taste. If you unsure if your video qualifies please email amvsacanime@gmail.com to check.
  • Do not include title bumpers to your videos. Title bumpers are anything before or anything after the video itself that says what the video is, or who made it. We will be adding uniform title bumpers to each video shown in the contest. If your video is submitted with a title bumper, we will ask you to resubmit the video without the bumper. We are not responsible for late entries due to re-editing time.
  • Do not submit any videos that includes subtitles or other logos, no associated with the video. (I.E. no subtitles unless it is important to the video and no Cartoon Network/Disney/TV Tokyo logos etc.),
  • No videos entered into a previous SacAnime AMV contest are allowed to be entered again
  • There is a new category added called “Fun”. This is for the videos that may not seem to fit in any other category. Like Anime trailers, dance amvs, etc.
  • The AMV Contest will last roughly 2 hours. If we receive multiple videos after the two hour mark because the website doesn’t close off entries quick enough, editors will be contacted to see if they would like their videos entered into the next SacAnime competition.

SacAnime AMV staff reserves the right to make changes to these rules at any time.
 


Video Formats We would prefer that your file arrives as either a WMV or MP4. AVI is fine, but it will have lower quality. If you choose to select a format that is different from the two listed please send us an e-mail at amvsacanime@gmail.com to confirm that it will work with our system. We can convert several types of formats such as .WMV and others, but we prefer that you handle the conversion yourself so you are happy with the quality output. We have a lot of hard drive space available, so please do not be afraid to send us the best quality video you have. We are projecting on large screens and want your video to look good as much as you do. Also, please if possible, have the video name written in the file name when submitting a video. We take a great deal of care to match up the correct video with the correct editor, but with over a hundred entries, it can be hard to distinguish files when they all read (narutoAMV.mpg) or (FFXvid.avi)

Title Bumpers Please do not include title bumpers to your videos. Title bumpers are anything before or after the video itself that says what the video is, or who made it. We will be adding uniform title bumpers to each video shown in the contest. If your video is submitted with a title bumper, we will ask you to resubmit the video without the bumper. We are not responsible for late entries due to re-editing time.

Categories:
When submitting a video you will choose what category your video belongs in. Typically the competition will be separated by categories but if there is not enough videos in one category it will be combined with another. If a video does not seem like it is in the correct category it will be moved to the appropriate category and the editor will be emailed about this change.
Action: Fast paced videos usually showing adventure, action, or horror anime
Drama: Slower videos that show usually show more sadder or serious situations
Comedy: Make the crowd laugh using hilarious anime or music
Romance: Videos with romantic interests or love stories
Fun: Something fun to watch that doesn’t really fit in any of the other categories

 


 

AMV Contest Submission Form:

All video submission must be accompanied with complete video and editor contact information. Failure to provide full information can lead to disqualification of one or all of your videos.
The deadline to submit videos will be at midnight August 31st or until we reach two hours of videos. Whichever is reached first will be the deadline.

 

ATTENTION: If you do not get an e-mail confirming your submission in 24 hours of your submitted video, please e-mail amvsacanime@gmail.com to make sure your video was received. Thank you!

 

If you have any questions regarding the event, please do not hesitate to contact the AMV staff at anytime so that we may assist you. The staff email is amvsacanime@gmail.com. Also please check SacAnime forums for frequently asked questions and updates regarding the event.

Side Note: I’m sorry this is up so late and so close to the actual convention. The transition to get everything ready for a new person to run the AMV contest took longer than I think everyone expected. I will now be going on the AMV forums and checking the email as much as I can before SacAnime. Thank you for your valued support of this event, and good luck!
