The last few years have been good for Yuri anime. There are a lot of series that came out (sadly, some went away just as quickly.) And to celebrate this great bounty of Yuri, we here at Yuricon and our video channel Yuristudios are having an AMV Contest!
The rules are different this year, and there’s some special Judges Challenges, so please read the rules carefully and follow them exactly:
AMV Contest General Guidelines
- All submissions must be on or uploadable to Youtube.
This means that if you send us a video, and when we upload it to YT, the music or video does not work, the entry will be disqualified. So – test it out first and make sure we can all enjoy it.
- All submissions must be PG-13. Please, no scenes from hentai video that contain explicit sex.
- The judges prefer metal to ballads. Yes, you *can* use Lady Gaga, if that’s what you like, but the judges are more likely to love it if it has O! Fortuna! Just saying… But, that doesn’t mean you all should use O!Fortuna!, either!
- Submissions do not have to be from Yuri anime, but the general theme of the video needs to be Yuri. If you need inspiration, take a look below at the Judges’ Challenges.
To Submit an AMV
- Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org Include the following information:
- Your Name; An Active Email Address you check regularly; Your Age (you must be at least 13 years old to enter)
- Link to the AMV on Youtube, or a link to where we can download it (if registration is needed to dl the video, let us know in advance, please.) Previously created videos are eligible, but…
- It would be swell if you added a splash page at the beginning or end of the video with Yuri Studios: http://www.youtube.com/user/yuristudio
- Any format, size or length that is uploadable to Youtube is acceptable
- Entries will be accepted until November 15th
Special Judges’ Challenges
Special Prizes will be awarded for anyone who successfully completes any of these challenges (if we get multiple entries, we’ll give the prize to the best of the bunch.)
- AMV of Rica ‘tte Kanji!? manga
- AMV of Haruka and Michiru from Sailor Moon to the Turtles’ “Happy Together”
- AMV of near-kiss moments from Maria-sama ga Miteru to Disney’s “Kiss the Girl”
- AMV of rare/obscure/unexpected anime (so, like, not Madoka, okay?)
Yuricon AMV Contest Judges are biased, because we’re human, so just think of it as the AMV equivalent to Olympic figure skating. (^_^)
Prizes will be awarded to categories randomly assigned by the Judges as they see fit. Prizes will include anime box sets, art books, Yuricon “I Love Yuri” goods. The Grand Prize is an Amazon Gift Certificate.
Get out your bag of AMV tricks and send those Yuri AMVs in today!
