    AMV CONTEST (December 07)

    AO is proud to present its Third ever periodic Anime Music Video (AMV) contest!

    If you plan on entering please READ EVERYTHING ON THIS PAGE!

    Entry Time Line:
    Submission deadline for the contest is 11:59 PM EST DECEMBER 31st, 2007

    Rules:
    Submissions must adhere to the following rules:
    1. Only 1 submission per person of an AMV you and ONLY YOU created.
    a. You may consult anyone you wish but YOU must have done the work.
    2. AMV must be of “good” quality* (See note below) to be accepted.
    3. Video must conform to site rules (No Hentai, for example)
    4. You must state the series & production studio(s) for the video footage
    5. You must state the artist(s)/group(s) and song(s) used in your AMV
    6. Your video must be at least 3:00 minutes in length
    7. If your AMV contains SPOILERS or EXPLICIT lyrics then it should be marked as so
    8. Video must be loaded to ONE of the below sites and linked back to AO.
    9. Submissions must be in the contest entries forum (Here) and follow the sample submission below.
    * “good” quality means that the audio, video and effort are well done and thought out. Simply adding audio to a clip of consecutive unedited/unclipped series footage is not allowed. Also poor quality (YouTube-ish) SOURCE video footage is not acceptable.

    Voting:
    Voting will be via a PRIVATE poll in the staff lounge by staff who did not participate with an entry of their own.


    Each of these entries will be reviewed and the voting will be based on the following:

    Theme – Each AMV has a overall theme, did the creator capture that?

    Footage quality – is their footage high quality or are there logos, subtitles or just fuzzy low quality footage? Also did they pick footage that helped them capture the theme?

    Quality of sound – is the sound crisp and clear or does it sound like a low quality midi? Also did they pick music that helped them capture the theme?

    Syncing - How well the music matches the on goings of the footage, this can be in the “theme” of the song; by the actual words matching the footage or that the footage matches the “beat” of the music (such as explosions).

    Originality - Is the concept or theme fresh and new thus standing out or is it the same old same old.

    Effort/Effects - Did the creator put time and effort into the vid using a lot of effects and blending the scenes or did they just stick a song to some random footage.

    (No where did I say anything about their opinion of the member, no vote will be based on the creator or their opinion of him/her)

    After considering the above please respond within the week (by October 7th 11:59 PM EST) with your votes as so:

    1) Best anime music video
    2) Runner up to best anime music video

    I will use these two votes in a weighted system to determine the winners.

    1) Best anime music video = 1 point
    2) Runner up to best anime music video = .5 of a point

    The person with the highest score will win.

    Can we use photobucket? I'm not sure what the file restrictions are - but I can find out. I have gmail - so I can look into the google video - just am lazy on a good day

    Photobucket, while it does support videos, they are not at a very good quality. Youtube or AMV.org is your best bet.
