AE Presents: Camera, Set, Music! Contest

2016 might be the year of music, with new stars emerging daily thanks to the power of the internet and the Eurovision festival currently going on. So we thought... why not put on an AE music video contest? We've got some amazing video makers in our community, and you might be one of them!

Contest Plot: Create an original music video

You read that right! For this contest, create an original music video that takes place in one of our games (or all of them?!)! 

  • Submit your existing Music Video to us! (Just as long as you have the permission of anyone that helped you make it.)
  • You can enter videos made BEFORE the contest start date as long as it meets all of the other rules/requirements.
  • You must include your AQW or AQ3D character name in the form when you submit, NOT the video description

CHALLENGE! Being able to put every AE game ever made into 1 video would be a great challenge for the veterans in our video-making community.

Again, please remember: you cannot use anything that would cause copyright issues! Check out this link to see how you can make sure the song/s you choose are alright to use.

Questions

Can I use an animated cutscene I made?  It can be your own animated cutscene or a video made using in-game clips.

Can I look at other videos for reference? Yes, absolutely. Being inspired by someone is fine, you just cannot copy their work and call it yours.

Why do I have to include my/my team's AQW or AQ3D names in the form? This proves that you/your team created the video, and are not stealing it from anyone.
