Hi everyone! You've been waiting patiently and this year’s AMV contest. Well it's is back and going to be crazier than ever.
The faster you send in your AMV, the extra brownie points you get in judging! Will you remain calm under pressure, procrastinate or race to the finish line to get there first? Carnage is this year’s theme in both mentality and creativity, and ‘carnage’ is completely open to interpretation and we encourage you all to be create in how you theme your AMV around it.
Rules and regulations:
The AMV can contain any reference considered to be nerdy, such as anime, manga, comic book images, western animation, webtoons, game footage, live action, and a new one for this year personally shot cosplay footage!
AMV’s must be at least 1 minute long, and no longer than 6 minutes.
Only attendees of the convention will be considered for the contest.
The file must be in a widely-used, playable format for VLC player.
The AMV contest is for all ages and depending on content Nom Con reserves the right to refuse to screen any and all AMV’s deemed unfit for public viewing. This is not debatable.
Depending on the number of entries you may or may not be split into separate catagories, so please include your approximate age (child, teenager, young adult, 25 or over), how many years you have been making AMV’s for, and how many contests you’ve entered/won if applicable in the email you send containing the link to your finished work.
By submitting your work to Nom Con’s contest you give us permission to screen your AMV at our convention, and possibly upload it to one of our affiliated webpages afterwards.
Depending on the number of submissions, we may not have time to air every single AMV, but we reassure you that every AMV will be watched thoroughly and judged before the AMV’s are screened on the Sunday. In the case of time constraints, the AMVs screened on the Sunday will be chosen at random.
All judges decisions are final and not debatable. Anyone caught not respecting this rule will be reprimanded.
If Nom Con has any reason to suspect your AMV has been plagiarized it will be removed from the competition without notification. If you have in fact plagiarized, Nom Con reserves the right to ban the guilty party from participation in all future AMV contests run by us. For this reason, if you have already released your AMV online, but you would like to update it for the convention, you need to notify us of this when you send the email. *Please note it must be at least 70% new material and the old AMV must also belong to you alone.
