|Hello everyone! We are pleased to announce that Kumoricon 2016’s AMV Contest is ready for AMV submissions!
Please follow this link to reach our online rules/submission page: https://www.kumoricon.org/amv-contest
This year, Kumoricon is relocating to Portland, Oregon where the convention will be held from October 28th to the 30th. With the new change in scenery, we have a few changes to announce for this year’s AMV competition.
We are bringing back THE MELTING POT category, where all other genres of AMV’s are welcome if they do not fit into the other contest categories.
To honor the new Kumoricon date, we are also introducing a BONUS THEME “HALLOWEEN” category, for those editors who have a knack at frightful edits, suspenseful transitions, and terrifyingly good scene selection!
Lastly, we have upgraded to using an online submission form through the Kumoricon website — which can be reached here.
It is our hope that Kumoricon’s AMV Contest continues to show the best of the best from around the globe — and all of you make that possible. We look forward to seeing what you create!
Let the Games Begin!!!
Here are this year’s rules! They can also be found on the Kumoricon AMV Contest page.
There are seven categories for the 2016 contest:
Upbeat / Dance Music: We're looking for fast-paced fun.
Intensity: Action, suspense, conflict, triumph, and despair!
Instrumental: Any style of AMV, but no words in the music.
Comedy / Parody: Weird. Funny? Surprising!
Trailers: Now playing at a Kumoricon AMV Contest near you…
The Melting Pot: If your AMV doesn't fit another Category—Anything "Appropriate" goes!
Bonus Theme "Halloween": To honor the new Kumoricon date, AMVs with Spooky, Scary, Suspenseful Fun!
Contest is PG-13.
We try to run a clean show. This includes no themes likely to insult or disparage by race, social class, religion, ethnicity, gender, or sexuality—because that's no fun for anybody.
Anime: are Japanese animated productions featuring hand-drawn or computer animation (Video game footage is not anime).
You may include no more than 10% (of total duration) of non-anime (as defined above) video.
TV station logos ("bugs") and other commercial indices must be obscured or removed.
