Frequently Asked Questions
What is March Caprice?
March Caprice is a virtual gathering for fans of the Kingdom Hearts video game series. Its goal is to showcase and support the incredible hard work, projects, and talents of the community through the uniting force of the series. We invite all who wish to show off their latest content, ideas, and more to participate and join us in celebrating these incredible games!
How does it work?
Content creators of all kinds will premiere pieces of media that revolve around the KINGDOM HEARTS series, and we’ll be promoting it on our website and various social media. Art, Writings, Merchandise, and Cosplays can be viewed in a static gallery on our website. Videos will be hosted on the creators’ individual channels according to a preset schedule. All works will also have a spot in the schedule where they’ll be showcased on our own YouTube and Twitch channels.
When is the event?
March Caprice is an annual event that occurs in late March. This year, March Caprice will be held from Sunday, March 24th to Saturday March 30th, 2024. However, a lot of our schedule is dependent on how many people sign up. We’re confident that we’ll at least fill that time, but do keep an eye out for any changes.
Where/When can I see the schedule?
We will post the schedule to the website as soon as we have it finalized the week of March 18th, so you may want to check back often. Any major website updates will be announced on our social media accounts.
Who is involved in the event?
The event staffers are listed on the organizers page. All of the participants will be revealed when the schedule is officially released.
Is there a cost to be a part or attend the event?
Both attending the event and participating in the event are totally free. Save that money you would’ve spent going to a convention on supporting the participants!
Where can I sign up to be a part of the event?
You can sign up using the forms on our home page. With the exception of Livestreams, all sign-ups will be closed on January 13th, 2024. Livestream sign-ups will be closed February 17th.
What types of entries are suitable?
Any type of talent is welcome! If you would like some inspiration, take a look at our previous events.
How do I submit as a group?
You will need to select a group leader who will be the correspondent between your group and March Caprice. This leader will submit ONE (1) entry for the whole group.
May I submit more than one entry?
Absolutely. However, you are not guaranteed to have all of your submissions approved. We are also only allowing one entry per person per category. The categories are as follows:
- Pre-recorded Video
Is there a length minimum or maximum for my submission?
- Writers: Your works must be over 1,000 words, and under 3,000 words if they want to be hosted on-site. See the help page for more details.
- Pre-recorded videos: They must be over 3 minutes and under an hour.
- Livestreams: The limit doesn’t exist.
- Music: Anywhere from 2 minutes to 10 minutes.
- Costume Catwalk videos: There is no minimum, but it must not exceed 3 minutes.
Is this event family-friendly?
If March Caprice were a movie, we’d give it a rating of PG-13. Participants and content may use some coarse language, but we encourage folks to be as family-friendly as possible. In general, you can apply common sense to the content you make. If you are unsure whether your submission is permissible, please contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be aware, some of these creators do not subject themselves to the PG-13 rule outside of the event; keep that in mind when engaging with these creators outside of March Caprice. We are not responsible for how creators engage with their content outside of the March Caprice space. Participants that violate the PG-13 rating inside of the event are subject to expulsion from further March Caprice events.
I’ve never made a certain type of work before, can I submit my first one to March Caprice?
In order to make sure that you have the capability to create a work in a category you sign up for, we require that you have already created at least one piece of work in a category you intend to present before signing up. For example, if you’ve never made a written piece of work, but you have a portfolio of art, you are more than welcome to sign up for an art piece, but not a written piece. Take this time to create post(s) with your profile(s), and please resubmit once you’ve begun to build your portfolio.
May my content feature copyrighted materials?
As far as official copyrighted material: because your work will be featured on your own channel(s), we’d encourage you to abide by those platforms’ upload terms. Any copyright infringement or action taken by copyright content owners will still be your responsibility–our role will be promoting your work during the day of the event.
As far as using the likeness of other creators or their work: You need their permission before using other people’s likeness or work. If we get a takedown request from the featured person, it will be taken down without hesitation.
Can I submit already existing work or do I need to make something new for this event?
Any content presented for March Caprice must not have existed in the public before November 11th, 2023. This way, the event will be a new experience and will encourage your audience to explore your previous work.
May I feature NSFW content?
Your submission may not feature any NSFW/18+ content. If March Caprice were a movie, we’d give it a rating of PG-13. We encourage this event to be as family-friendly as possible. We reserve the right to reject a submission for any reason, but in general, you can apply common sense to the content you make. If you are unsure, feel free to contact us.
May I feature SFW shipping content?
We are not allowing shipping content for March Caprice. If you have any concerns about a potential entry, feel free to contact us.
May I submit a piece of work that is only tangentially KINGDOM HEARTS related?
This event is intended to celebrate the creatives within the KINGDOM HEARTS community, and as such, we will likely not approve pieces where KINGDOM HEARTS is not the primary focus of the piece.
Can I submit a piece that will be sponsored?
If you can get a sponsor for your submission, by all means, feel free.
Can I get feedback on my piece?
While the March Caprice staff will not be giving subjective feedback on pieces, we will let you know if your submission does or does not meet the event’s criteria or violates March Caprice’s Terms of Service. However, we do have a Discord server for the event where you can get feedback from other participants and the larger March Caprice community.
