The AMV contest is open to anybody, except for the Geekfest Quebec's staff
Editors can send up to 2 amvs. Both amvs must be of different category.
MEP/Collabs are allowed. The person submitting the AMV by mail will have the mep counted in his 2-amv limit. Other editors which have participed in the mep won't have the MEP/Collab counted in their 2-amv limit, so they can still send 2 videos.
The AMV must have been published publicly in 2014, not before.
Any plagiarism will be punished by absolute disqualification.
Scenes containing extreme graphic violences (decapitation, torn limbs, guts) and pornography are forbidden. Considering that the amv should be for a public under 18. (fan service/ecchi is tolerated)
There is no maximum length for the amv, but keep in mind that anything over 5 minutes may be removed from the public's screening due to short time span allowed for the contest.
Also, in order to show as much AMVs as possible, please consider having less than 20 seconds of intro/outro/credits (combined). Non-respect of this rule may reduces the chances of the amv being shown.
Geekfest Quebec reserves the right to disqualify entries for any reason they see necessary to protect the overall quality and integrity of the program.
