|Hello! Kumoricon Anime convention in Vancouver WA this year has their AMV contest!
The deadline this year is 24-Jul-13, and the contest event will show on 31-Aug-13 with an audience of about 800 - 1000 fans.
Official rules site:
Text only site (English)
SIX AMV CATEGORIES: (and 9 - 11 PRIZES!!)
1- INTENSITY 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.
2- INSTRUMENTAL 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
Music Sample 2
3- RETRO 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.
4- 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 Hays Code which was in force from the 1930s through 1960s also offers a good voluntary guideline as well.
5- TRAILERS 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.
6- 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 prize is chosen by audience vote.
Besides Judges' Choice, the judges panel may select additional an entry to receive a Special Mention or another honor of their creation. The AMV Contest Coordinator may also select an entry for Special Mention. Therefore, a total of between nine and eleven prizes shall be awarded in 2013.
Each prize is usually an anime DVD, or a figurine or other similar anime collectible. Editors of AMVs which win multiple prizes may receive several prizes or may receive a box set or similar combination or uber-prize. Winners not present at the convention will be contacted privately for shipping details and we will ship or deliver all other winners' prizes to them as long as there is a physical address to receive them. Winners not present at the convention also receive a Kumoricon swag-bag containing the convention program and promotional materials and other fun stuff. Shipment from the USA to overseas winners may take up to 3 to 6 weeks.
