Hi everyone. AMV-France is proud to announce the Online Contest 2023, an event which offers a fair experience with his particular rule - 100% ANONYMOUS. It's time to explain the rules.
. No theme will be imposed, let your imagination run freely
. The video's length cannot be under 1min30
. The video must be made exclusively for this contest
. The following containers are allowed: .avi, .mp4, .mkv
. AMV, GMV and M@D autorised
. No plagiarism
. Your amv cannot exceed 300Mo or 20mbt/s unless there is a valid reason
. Your amv cannot feature logo, subtitles and such (unless it is part of the video's concept)
. The videos used must have a direct and obvious relationship with non-original animation (We are talking here about animation not created entirely by the AMV maker such as original animation or creations entirely in CGI). Videos taken from video games will not be accepted. It is possible to mix these images with "real" sources if that the non-origial animated images represent at least 70% of the AMV.
. Your amv must not contain footage exlusively available in theater.
. Your amv cannot feature any intro or outro
You read well, neither intro, neither outro, neither any hint which could reveal who made this amv. This contest is supposed to be anonymous. You read well again, COMPLETELY ANONYMOUS. Thus, nobody will be able to say the name had a role, because the judges will not know who made what. However, the reverse holds true, the contestants will not know who the judges are either, why can't they be anonymous too? Any amv featuring an intro, outro or hints about its author will simply be disqualified.
. Contestants can send multiple amv and multiple MEP
You have more freedom because you are not limited to only one amv by person but you can also send multiple amv and multiple MEP limited by 5 entries by person. MEP must also be exclusivity.
. The amvs must not be uploaded publicly online before the end of the contest
First, because that would ruin the anonymity, but moreover we will show the creditless versions ourselves through the AMV-France website. You will then be able to see them without having to wait for the end of the contest and the results. And it might be fun to see who guessed the right editors at the end!
The video has to be sent through FTP. The credentials will be sent by mail to the contestants who are validated. A tutorial to use it is available by clicking here.
The name of the video file must respect this convention: The_Title.mp4 (or mkv, avi...).
. The deadline is January 7th 2024
◄ Other Information and contact
The diffusion of the amvs will be continuous with 3 amvs per day. It will start when enough amvs are sent. If the number of videos fails to reach our expectations, the diffusion will consist of only 1 or 2 amvs per day. We will use an exclusive YouTube channel dedicated only to the Online Contest. The top 5 will be uploaded (with credits, of course) on the AMV-France channel, from 5th to 1st place.
There will be 3 judges. Besides, you will send your amv to the host of the contest who will be the one to upload the amvs/MEPs on YouTube (she will neither take part in the contest, nor be a judge). Moreover, a viewer's prize will be awarded to the video with the most "likes".
