You have to be the creator of the AMV!
One AMV per editor or group. You can’t enter with a MEP and a solo AMV.
Your AMV have to be between 1.30 to 5 minutes long. Not more, not less. #LessIsMore
The majority of your AMV must contain Japanese anime or animated film, or fitting sequences from TV/PC games.
Your video cannot contain 18+ material such as porn and violence! Bloody action scenes and ecchi are of course accepted content to use, but think about how you use it!
Your AMV should not have been released before the convention takes place! It has to be exclusive.
AMV,GMV,MMV, MEP and Collabs are allowed. #everybody, get in here!
The quality of your video and sound is important since your amv will be on a big screen in front of a big audience! We recommend that you use at least: 480p, 720p or 1080p. This is not a rule, but the judges love some good quality.
Max filesize is 350mb!
Allowed codecs and source format:
Video codec: x264, Xvid, vidx
Audio: minimum - 44,100hz, 128kbps. We recommend: 48,000hz, 320 kbps.
Format: mp4, mkv, wmv, mov
Your video cannot contain any fan-made subtitles or original credits from the source you’re using! (for example: visible kanji in an anime opening will not be accepted). It’s the same with TV logos. This cannot be visible in your AMV.
Judges have the right to disqualify your video.
