Can the video be audio-only? Is there a preference on time, since like images will be looked at for maybe five minutes tops when judging, so the videos should be like a minute or two? I can talk a lot AND go on tangents, too, so this is somewhat need to know LOL.

Also, we shouldn't violate copyrights/use them, so does that bar drawing like Hatsune Miku with our emotion of choice, or briefly mentioning an anime by name in the video?


given that the file is supposed to be at most 300kb, a video that satisfy this criteria doesn't seem feasible.
(i'm not sure how one would make a video that's only 300kb in size)

Hatsune Miku is intellectual property and copyright from CRYPTON FUTURE MEDIA, INC so no, Miku drawing is not allowed.
basically, you're supposed to make something from scratch, without any reference from characters you already know.
it needs to be an original art work that doesn't violate copyrights or ip of any party.

edit: by the by, taking a photo of yourself could be in violation of coopyright, especially if the shirt / jacket / etc design is copyrighted.
(and yes, some clothes designs are copyrighted). pretty extreme example, i know, but just a heads-up. probably better to just draw.

I believe that they're only talking about the picture being a maximum size of 300kbs, not the video submission. At least that's how I'm interpreting it in the T&Cs for this contest.

It says we can send in an image expressing how anime makes us feel, but it says we can't send in photos. So does this mean if I want to send in a photo of myself expressing my love for anime it won't count? Does it specifically have to be drawn?


They're only talking about copyrighted photos or photos that would have to be paid for by them there, not a photo that you'd take of yourself. Basically, you can't have anything that's copyrighted showing in the photo or video that you make.

'Submission must NOT include mention or depiction of any copyrighted material (including but not limited to music, films, books, television programming, etc.) and must not infringe on any third-party trademarks (including, but not limited to brand names, product names, logos, insignia, location signage, photographs, artwork, etc.), with the exception of Crunchyroll;

Submissions must NOT include use of web links, photos, animated symbols or emojis, or symbols or emojis that must be purchased for use. Standard free emojis and symbols are permitted.'

However, it seems that the use of anything Crunchyroll, like their logo, is permitted in the pictures or videos. I hope that this clears this up for you.

Is there any chance of adding Slovenia to the "valid" list ?

I am quite sure there isn't any regulation preventing this - since i competed in plenty similar "random/luck draw" events with similar reward.

I could be wrong though

Well this wasn't mentioned. The not having a social media account isn't even my biggest problem. I can't draw for shit. That's really unfair.

There's still the option to make a video, either with a phone, or, hell, could even just record some audio and put it over a slideshow.

Hey, I just want to check if Brazil residents really cannot participate or you guys just forgot to put it on the list, since there was some mistakes with the previous versions of the text. Thanks.

I understand that copyright is an issue however, the fact that essentially no anime unless fan created can be featured or used (ex. a drawing based on characters, or cosplay) really limits the submission to an audio track of saying your feelings. Confused on how to make anything work that isn't so simple and un-creative as just me speaking...? Please help.

well, entering a miku drawing for the chance of getting rewarded money would violate the non-commercial license, since that would be considered "private monetary compensation" ( https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/3.0/us/legalcode )

edit: the non-commercial license in the context of artwork is only intended to let you make fan arts of miku, etc on image sharing sites without worrying about legal repercursions. it's an entirely different story to use it on a competition with the possibility of being awarded monetary compensation, such as in this competition.

Im very confused. Are they saying you cant say the name of any anime film, ever, like you cant even mention spirited away, or Yuri on ice? Or anything? Or are they saying you cannot have content like they said Audio, films books and Telivision. Are they saying no Direct content or can you really just not talk about the anime's at all, like you cant list a single anime verbally, not even the name, or the manga aritist, or anything?? Is that what this is saying.

So, Miku art is definitely not allowed then?? >n> That kinda sucks since I drew Miku alongside Hime in the other contest. I guess I don't mind too much though, since I didn't think I'd win anyways (it was good practice at least).

But I do agree with andgymason up there that not having any anime in a piece that describes how we feel about anime is kind of limiting...? Are the anime that Crunchyroll has on their site included/excluded in that? Or could we just reference the anime? (ie: bleeping out letters, changing around titles with synonyms, drawing the characters but not mentioning their names or shadowing out some features. kind of like how anime references anime)

Does anyone know if you can email someone on staff at Crunchyroll specifically to try and get an answer? I mean if my video breaks the rules it breaks the rules cause I can't film anymore at this point but I want to know if I even have a chance or not. Not mentioning any anime at all, in a 'why I like anime' video just seem, well kind awkward and weird, that is like telling someone to tell you what they love about orchestra but have them not mention a single instrument, it doesn't make any sense.

Plus Review or verbal mentions of Anime should fall under fair use and not provoke copyright infringement as long as your not taking direct content and stuff. Otherwise, every anime review ever would be taken down and so would Anime Summaries done by youtubers and stuff, so i ..I don't know I am looking to deep into this am I misunderstanding what they're saying.

I Don't know about this Contest, I feel like their making it impossible to win, let alone submit something original, no fan art, at all no mention of any anime at all, so how are supposed to give example's and make points, otherwise the video just feels boring like you just walk in there and have a blank wall behind you ( I have anime fan art posters in my background, ) and are just like "I Like Anime, Anime is fun. Anime has been fun for me for a Long time." It sounds kinda of silly to me Honestly, there is no comparison there, and I feel like it sucks the life out your submission, you want to show who you really are in your submission, so why would Anime content be excluded.

So you I would have a blank black round absolutely no speech since I can't mention Anime at all just fall flat emotions with no examples or explanation or comparison. And I don't know I might have to edit the shit out of my video, I have no idea. This makes no sense to me.
