Welcome to the First Official Music Addicts AMV Contest. Many of you should know what it's about so I'll get straight to the facts. This is the first contest for the club so forgive me if not everything is perfectly thought out. If things go well we'll surely have many more contests like these. For now I can only offer a sweet little banner and the fame for the winner but maybe some of you enjoy making AMVs as much as I hope and will still share them with us. Also forgive me for the simple banner on top.

Theme: Adventure/Action

Rules
:
  • no Violation of MAL Rules (no nudity etc.)
  • Theme: Action Anime / Adventure Anime
  • Every anime used in the AMV must be of the Theme genre
  • The entry must be submitted via Private Message to either Kanashimi or me
  • Do not reveal your entry before the deadline
  • Credit for music and anime used must be included in the video
  • AMV must entirely be created by the person who submits it for the contest
  • User who submits the video must be a member of the Music Addicts Club
  • Maximum length: 4 minutes
  • Minimum length: 1 minute
  • No subtitles in the AMV. Use clean sources only
  • Allowed filetypes: .divx, .avi, .mkv, .mov
  • Entry Deadline: 4 weeks
  • Voting Deadline: 2 weeks



Big thanks to my Co-Host Kanashimi for helping me out with this. She was way more experience with AMVs and contests.

Also, thanks to Malon, Mathes, and Kaiserpingvin for help regarding the rules.

If you have any questions, feel free to post here or message Kana or me.

Have fun! We're looking forward to seeing your entries. :D

great idea, just hope enough people will enter :D

(and I secretly hope not much people see naruto as an Action/Adventure anime.. )

Yes, that was a part of the idea - to spread the name of MAL through YouTube. I personally think, however, that no AMV should be revealed to the public before the end of the competition, as having it ready earlier allows it to attain popularity and familiarity, which would be an "unfair advantage". I dunno what Cyruz says however.

You're right. I did think of this before but that was before we decided to have this contest run for a whole month. I'll change the rules.

Every enty must be submitted via Private Message to either Kanashimi or me.

The anime shows you're using for your AMV, must all have at least Action or Adventure listed as genre here on MAL.

Have you tried to convert the file? You can do so with a problem like SUPER.

Nitpick grammar nazi Kaiserpingvin strikes :3

Also, SUPER is all you need.

Don't be sorry.

I was the nazi. You were the tired one. I think the winner is clear.

Anywhere you want. It's okay if it's not a movie website, you just need to upload it to a site like megaupload or rapidshare or whatever and send the link to either Kanashimi or me.

I'm pretty much finished. Just one question

Do not reveal your entry before the deadline - does this mean don't share it with anybody except for the judges? Or only send it to the judges on the deadline date?

It means that no MyAnimeList user should see your entry before Kanashimi and me put up the voting topic. In that topic we will present all the videos, we don't want users to have biased opinions.

When you're done, send us a link to the video and we will check if it abides by all the rules. When the entry deadline has come, we will present all the videos.
