I seriously think there should be one. I got so excited that there was a anime con near here since the closest one is in christchurch. I think its just unfair not to have one in dunedin.

The main negative thing I hear about this idea is about duplicate entries.

My solution? Prizeless competition. Credit and bragging rights only. Then, who cares about dupes?

Two maximum i'd say, and make sure the entries are in about three weeks before >_>;;; that way there's sufficient time to get crap sorted LOL

I REALLY think that'd be awesome to see an amv contest for dunnerz, there's a bunch of us who want to do this and i'm sure there'd be more organization for it this year.

Maybe first prize at MOST would get a box set or a plush toy of 50 bucks, 2nd 20 buck G C to MadMan, Third um... rasberry turd? @__@ no brains to think of a third LOL

I'd love to see this happen, not just for my sake - but because i could spam about it on my website!

You know, maybe if more people actually entered the amv contest at the other geddons, then there might be one for future NZAEs? Wink

Like JVCA says, if more people enter around the country, I think Dunedin would stand a better chance at getting its own comp. From what I heard, CHCH and Welly only had two AMVs entered between them, so how many do y'all think Dunedin would get?

If I'm not mistaken, the chch and welly AMV comps were actually cancelled because there were so few entries. At this rate, we might be lucky just to get one at auckland, let alone at dunedin.

You're not mistaken, Jess-- they were cancelled. I really hope they don't cancel the Auckland one, too, because gaaah, my AMV making hobby has no ultimate goal if there's no comp! D=

Well part of the problem is copyright and DCMA in the US, plus Youtube causing issues - if the RIAANZ had any say in it, they'd shut Bill down.. that could be part of it imho.

But RIANZ hold no real power, and this is not the USA and hence DMCA does not hold. And Youtube is totally unrelated to a contest. Your points are invalid.

The only problem is lack of entries.

Well if it's lack of entries, i think people need to be stepping up to the mark even maybe I could - or something, hold tutorials on AMV making, and not just slideshows.

Windows Live Movie Maker sucks, but it's step one for those who want to get into it.

And yea, i do think RIANZ doesnt hold any say, but they tend to have an unorganized lacing in society - and i know seriously a few angry people in dunedin who would seriously try to get teh amv contest shut down (and i'm not one of them)

And yes, youtube has a thing with this because people put their works on youtube to share - get shut down and then dont even bother to make things. Legally it may have no hold on Armageddon, but people do tend to get affected by this.

Hopefully next year it starts back up, i'm happy to scrounge up a tutorial or so on this so people get some ideas.

I think (from what I've seen at Chchgeddon) if they didn't always have the cosplay contest/judging at the same time as the AMV competition more people would go, and thus more people would make them.
Taking away the prizes wouldn't work - maybe advertising the AMV contest/the prizes more would help.

I always forget what date the AMVs need to be submitted by and I usually miss it because I'm so busy sewing madly. That's the only thing that keeps me from submitting my WMM-made AMVs to geddon. XDX

^ This. Mean looking up the main Armageddon website finding anything AMV comp related was difficult to find and the main content they advertised of the main AMV was very, very small. Think in Auckland they have a Top Ten thing and if your AMV gets into the top ten best, you get a free ticket in Geddon they should use that prize for Welly & CHCH and make it more noticeable =)

But heard in Auckland that heaps of entries where put in and they didn't show every AMV, only the ones that the judges liked and heard that people who worked really hard on their AMV and it didn't get showed- where rather.. not pleased..

An unorganized resistance is no resistance. To my knowledge, nobody has ever directly opposed armageddon's AMV contest to my knowledge, so that point is not relevant.

As for youtube, you may be correct. I wouldn't be surprised if a few people are put off by not being able to share their creation in the long-term, but when competing for a cash prize the recent DMCA-frenzy on youtube isn't relevant - people make AMVs primarily becuase it is fun, and they want the recognition of the contest - the growing inabaility to share them in the long term is a secondary issue at best.

@Firecat: I agree - removing the prizes would solve the duplicate entries issue, but would damage the contest as a whole. But I agree with you that the AMV contest should be more advertised - it hardly is at all at the moment, and if people were more aware of it we'd be more likely to see enough entries.

Yea, you have a valid point - i just had a crapload of people telling me what was up and down with copyrights recently and finding direct copyright laws in NZ is like trying to hire an honest marketer LOL, the lawyer's more honest then the company marketing dept Razz

Not awlays LOL.

But HOPEFULLY, in future years - there can be more of a competition, i just i think i was trying to make point that some users of late are not as willing cause they keep hearing about copyright issues. ^^ but you are correct creature, it wouldn't have validation on the competition Very Happy
