Rules Clarification

October 3, 2013 - SFM Team

We've had questions about the intellection property restriction in the rules for the Saxxy Awards. We've amended the rules to allow music and other works in the public domain to be included in your submissions. Also, any third party works licensed for the submission must be licensed on a royalty-free basis; be sure to read the owner's license carefully before using it. Unfortunately, many good entries to last year's Saxxy Awards were disqualified for using music that the creator didn't have the rights to.

Here we'll be sharing news, tips and tricks about all things relating to our storytelling tool, the Source Filmmaker. Because it�s the tool we use here at Valve to create our own movies, we will be adding features as we need them and then sharing them with everyone through Steam. You can join our official Steam Group to stay up-to-date with all the latest SFM news.
