*EDIT: 18/10/11* RESULTS ARE HERE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NJfha5...
*EDIT: 15/09/11* OFFICIALLY CLOSED - except for the couple of people who have asked in advance for an extension - I KNOW WHO YOU AREEE!
In honour of me getting 300 SUBSCRIBERS, I am hosting an AMV contest!!!
So read the rules, and get cracking! We all know from my MEPs that I'm pretty impatient, so the deadline is only going to be in two months time (and I can edit an AMV in like, 2 days so I'm sure you'll be fine with that).
- Active editors can join. So if you haven't edited anything for over six months, or you've publicly "resigned" from editing, then don't bother entering. Mind you, you can still SUBMIT things that are over six months old, if that makes sense.
- The videos have to be Avatar The Last Airbender (cartoon).
- I'd like the videos to be above 25 seconds and less than 3:30 minutes, but I'll give some leeway I guess.
- The video doesn't have to be new, but it's nice to see some fresh edits!!
- I'm not saying you'll get more points for it, but *cough* widescreen *cough.
- Full MEPs/collabs aren't allowed, but parts are.
- There will be a two categories - one for amvs, one for meps.
- You need to have the video as a response to this one, else link me to the video and I'll put it in this description.
- Only TWO videos are allowed. It can be two amvs or one amv and one mep - I don't mind.
- No picture slideshows. That's just silly.
- You can edit with WMM but good luck - I'm not going to go easy on you just because you don't use an advanced program. Everyone will be judged equally.
- Deadline will be September 15th!! It MIGHT be extended according to school work with the judges but don't count on it. AND PLEASE REMEMBER: I am in a different time zone to most of you, so I might be a day ahead! The contest will be closed when I see the date on my computer - I don't care if it's not the 15th yet in America or whatever. So you have been warned!! :P
- Happy Editing!!!
Judging will be done by myself one other youtube editor. You can guess who he is but I'm not going to tell you :3
You will get points for your videos, which are set out like this:
Lyrics matching - 10 points
Timing - 30 points
Effects usage - 30 points
Clips / Moments usage - 10 points
Overall Quality - 10 points
Song choice* - 10 points
*MEPs not marked on this.
Now on to prizes. There will only be TWO winners in the MEP category, and TWO winners for the AMV category.
1st Place - A song request for an AMV that I HAVE to make, plus you get to think of a theme if you want, and it will be dedicated to you.
2nd Place - You pick the song for my next upcoming MEP, and I HAVE to comply, and you automatically get a reserved place in the MEP.
1st Place - A collaboration project with myself, and you get to pick the song, and the winning video will be my featured video for a week.
2nd Place - A song request for an AMV that I HAVE to make, plus you get to think of a theme if you want, and it will be dedicated to you.
- If you're my YouTube friend then sorry, but I won't be playing favourites here. Just because you're a lovely lovely person, doesn't mean you are going to win!
- Judging will also be non-biased - no matter how many subscribers you already have.
- I used 1footballma1's old contest guidelines as a template for this one, so if any of you see similarities - well they're probably there! Haha
Song: Electric Twist - A Fine Frenzy (MY ALL TIME FAVOURITE BAND!! WINK WINK!!!)
