The SacAnime AMV Contest will take place both Friday and Saturday night in the “Panels A” room. Come laugh, cry, or “awwww” at the great entries from our talented contestants, then fill out your ballot to vote for the winners!
If you are interested in submitting an AMV, please be sure to read through all of the rules and submission guidelines.
There are two types of AMVs we will be accepting:
Competition: Videos submitted for consideration of an award. Competition entries may only be submitted by SacAnime attendees with a “Weekend” or “Saturday Only” badge.
Exhibition: Videos submitted only to be played for the audience, but not considered for an award.
AMV Contest Rules:
We would prefer that your file arrives as either a MPEG or AVI. If you choose to select a format that is different from the two listed please send us an e-mail at email@example.com to confirm that it will work with our system. We can convert several types of formats such as .WMV and others, but we prefer that you handle the conversion yourself so you are happy with the quality output.
We have a lot of hard drive space available, so please do not be afraid to send us the best quality video you have. We are projecting on large screens and want your video to look good as much as you do.
Also, please if possible, have the video name written in the file name when submitting a video. We take a great deal of care to match up the correct video with the correct editor, but with over a hundred entries, it can be hard to distinguish files when they all read (narutoAMV.mpg) or (FFXvid.avi)
Please do not include title bumpers to your videos. Title bumpers are anything before or after the video itself that says what the video is, or who made it. We will be adding uniform title bumpers to each video shown in the contest. If your video is submitted with a title bumper, we will ask you to resubmit the video without the bumper. We are not responsible for late entries due to re-editing time.
All video submissions must be accompanied with complete video and editor contact information. Failure to provide full information can lead to disqualification of one or all of your videos.
If you have any questions regarding this event, please do not hesitate to contact the AMV staff at anytime so that we may assist you. Also please check the SacAnime forums for frequently asked questions and updates regarding the event.
Thank you for your valued support of this event, and good luck!
