Now Accepting Submissions for the Seventh Annual Saxxy Awards!

March 1, 2018 - SFM Team

It's time to start submitting your entries to The Seventh Annual Saxxy Awards! You have until Thursday, March 8th, at 3:00PM PST for your final submission, but we highly recommend you submit versions earlier in the week so that if unforeseen networking or computer problems occur, you still have a version submitted.

After submitting your video, remember to tag entries over three minutes as Extended, and all other entries as Action, Comedy and/or Drama. Entries up to one minute should also be tagged as Short. (in addition to the genre tags)

Don't forget to provide links to any music or other IP that your entry uses, and add your co-authors as contributors. Lastly, make sure that your submitted video is publicly visible, allows embedding, and is free of advertisements, YouTube annotations or cards. The guidelines contain more details on all of these requirements, so check there first if you have any questions. The SFM Steam Community is filled with many experienced SFM users and Saxxy contributors, and can be a good resource for questions as well.

We're looking forward to your submissions, so get those entries in!
