|Hello! I am sorry that I do not speak or read Russian, but our convention in the US Pacific Northwest will show at 31-Aug-13 this year. Deadline is 34-Jul-13 this year. The AMVs are shown to a crowd of around 1,000 anime fans or more.
(I can speak and read some French, German, and Japanese, though.)
Anyone is welcome to translate the categories and information into Russian or other languages and add the text here! )

Summary of Categories
SIX AMV CATEGORIES:
Similar to an 'Action' category, but THIS year we are merging 'Effects' into this category, because good effects are intense. This category is for a strong dramatic plot or visuals, engaging the audience with impact, high suspense, and gripping scenes throughout. There is an additional prize for best Effects (see below,) but the Effects prize winner can come from any category.
This category may use any anime and any style of AMV, with the only criterion being that the music contain no discernible lyrics, and no scat or nonsense syllables either. Instrumental music may use the human voice as a wordless instrument. Here are two examples:
Music Sample 1 <http://users.opusnet.com/guy1656/antartica5.mp3>
Music Sample 2 <http://users.opusnet.com/guy1656/rwjce.mp3>
Each submission must satisfy BOTH of these conditions below:
All music and sources must be at least five (5) years old, and
The sum, in years, of the latest (youngest) video source and audio source must equal AT LEAST 30.
 G-RATED COMEDY & PARODY
Tell all your jokes here! But to keep them CLEAN and FUN for ALL - will be the challenge! Entries for this category MUST conform to the MPAA "General" ("G") rating. The Hayes Code which was in force from the 1930s through 1960s also offers a good voluntary guideline as well.
Includes fake commercials, TV spots, and movie and game trailers. May use actual advertising audio or a fictitious creation in the style of a commercial, trailer, or fake episode opening credits. Serious and intriguing dual-openers will also show in this category. Comedy trailers may get redirected to the COMEDY category.
 MISLEAD THE AUDIENCE!
A project wherein the story seen in the AMV is unrelated or opposite to the story told in the actual anime series. Here are some possible strategies:
Make a romantic couple or relationship that does not exist in the show
Depict secondary characters as primary driving elements of a new story
Make a cheerful show come to a tragic or somber ending, or vice-versa, such as a comedy lampoon of a horror story
Rearrange story elements out of their original timeline to create a new plot
Apply digital effects / composites to create new settings, lighting, mood, and feel
Color-swap hair, skin, eyes, clothing and more to depict new and different-looking characters, objects, and settings
Composite characters onto a new setting from another show
Composite a character from a different show with a similar design style to make a new story or relationship
 JUDGES' CHOICE: Chosen by the judges' panel. The winner is revealed immediately following the contest.
 MASTER of TECHNICAL EFFECTS: New Prize for 2013! Chosen by the judges' panel AND the contest coordinator. In the event that the selected AMV is NOT selected for a category, it will be shown as an Exhibition entry and awarded its prize.
 BEST of SHOW chosen by audience vote.
You do not have to visit the convention to win a prize.
We contact prize winners privately and we will ship prizes anywhere.
Kumoricon welcomes entries from all over the world and a special welcome to all AMV editors in the Federated States. We thank you for your entries last year and look forward to your participation this summer also!
