We advise participants to create their own content and to use edited tracks or copyright free content from YouTube or any similar platform. Plagiarism will lead to disqualification.
    • We sincerely request all parents to allow the children to do their edits on their own and not assist the children in any way.

    All submissions must be kid-friendly; hentai and other content which may violate this standard shall be ineligible for entry in the tournament. The following points must be strictly adhered to:
    -no genitalia can appear in the artwork, however indirectly
    ~breasts, if present, must be adequately (at least 50%) covered and nipples must be absent from view
    ~no overly suggestive sexual poses shall be tolerated

    • Participants should write their full and correct name in the contest form, as this name will appear in the certificates in case of winning.
    • Use the following logo in your video

    Advice to participants:

      • The new TikTok algorithm seems to favor short videos which have a high watch time. However, it’s too short, TikTok won't also push it forward. Keep it 9 to 15 seconds MAXIMUM. While the condition for winning stays the same = most likes. You need to have a hook in your video, to entice people to keep watching till the end. Videos with a high watch time are pushed to a wider audience, which in turn helps to get more views and more likes, which will help you win. By the way, those tips, you can apply on your Tik Tok account to test them out 
  • Please do not message us without allowing a couple of days for us to post your videos. Note that the anime edit contest is run by a different team than those managing our Instagram/Facebook account. So, in case you need to contact us for the anime edit contest, WhatsApp us here: +230 5 913 53 74.
  • Our logo should be bottom right. Your logo or username should be bottom left. Both should be discreet. Do not put them in big.
  • Do not mention Adilsons Anime Edit Contest in the video. Your videos will be viewed by an international audience, you need to put content that will make them watch your videos and like them. In the comment section, you can refer to the anime edit
  • Your titles should be optimized so that when people search, they can go to your video. If the clip is about Naruto fighting pain, well put the Title Naruto vs Pain. Give it a proper title so that it increases your chance that people search your video and land on it.
  • Do not forget to submit your work with the correct naming format: ''Your name. The Title of your video'' this part is very important for the proper sorting of the submissions. For me, it would be: Ashfaq Ramjaun Naruto vs Pain
  • The hashtags and caption is important as it gives you an additional tool to make your videos being pushed to more audience.
  • Furthermore, you can always contact +23059135374 if you have any queries on WhatsApp for the anime edit contest.
