KuroNekoConline TikTok Contest Rules

  1. Submission themes must adhere to KNC’s Code of Conduct. Submissions may not include: Nudity (implied or actual), overly explicit lyrics, images, and words, or other content that is not family friendly in nature.
  2. You must be 13 years old (and have parental permission if under 18).
  3. Entries must be received by the deadline of Wednesday, July 8th, 2020 11:59 PDT. Reuploads of old videos (of the entrant’s original work) are allowed, but the actual video entry must be uploaded after June 15th, 2020 11:59 PDT. Only one entry is allowed per account- entrants can post under the hashtag #kuronekoconline as much as they wish, but only the entry that comes in through the Google Form will be considered the official entry.
  4. Entries must be posted in a short-format lip-sync or dance style video (no longer than 60 seconds), in a place visible to the public on an account legally accessible by minors (no private accounts, no paywalls, etc). TikTok is recommended, but not required. Please see posting guidelines for instructions for each method:

    Submitting Via TikTok (recommended)

    Submitting via Google Drive

    1. The Official KuroNekoCon TikTok must be tagged in the video description (@kuronekocon) and #kuronekoconline in the hashtags.
    2. The user’s account must not be set to private — the video must be accessible the entire duration of the contest.
    3. The video settings must allow it to be downloaded for use in the contest. These settings are available in the users’ Privacy and Safety settings.
    4. All entrants must fill out using the application form.
    1. If the entrant does not have TikTok, the video must be shared via Google Drive to cosplayevents@kuronekocon.com for use in the contest.
    2. The video must be shot in vertical orientation — something that would be easily viewable on a phone camera.
    3. Preferred resolution is ≥ 1280*720px. If the video is determined to be unusable, the entrant will be contacted, but if no reply is received by the contest date, will be disqualified.
    4. All entrants must fill out using the application form.
  5. TikTok Duets and Group Lip Syncs are allowed under the following conditions:
    1. Both videos in a duet must have been entered for the competition — both must have the hashtag #kuronekoconline in the description. Any videos dueting a non-conline related video will not be eligible for entry. It is the discretion of each user entering a TikTok for this contest to whether their settings allow for duets.
    2. Only the owner of the account who submitted the entry is eligible to win, or the person who actually submitted the entry if sent via Google Drive.
  6. Due to time restrictions, not all entrants can be guaranteed a slot — this is done on a first-come, first-serve basis. Entrants must reply to any correspondence via email regarding issues with their videos — such as privacy settings making videos inaccessible, or incorrect video orientation.
