Now Accepting Submissions For The Fourth Annual Saxxy Awards!

September 16, 2014 - SFM Team

You can now submit your entries for the Fourth Annual Saxxy Awards!

We can't wait to see everything that you've all created, but before you submit, here are a few reminders and clarifications.

While the deadline is Wednesday, September 24th at 4PM PDT, we strongly urge you to submit early versions, both to guard against your internet connection going down on the last day, and to give yourself time to make any changes after reviewing the uploaded video. (Found in the Videos tab of your Steam Community profile.)

Note that the deadline is the time at which entries must be FINISHED with the submission process, not the time at which they start. So give yourself plenty of time for the upload process, just to be safe.

If your entry uses music or other intellectual property (IP) that wasn't created by Valve or part of an SFM downloadable content pack, don't forget to provide links to the included work in the description for your submission. For workshop items, you can generate the list of used items in your session within the SFM via Show Used Workshop Items under the File -> Community submenu. While you should provide links to used workshop items, you don't need explicit permission from the creators, since it is implicitly granted by submission to the workshop.

Once your entry has been submitted, please add your co-authors as contributors. Remember that only people who worked directly on the entry are considered contributors. If you used workshop items in your entry, the creators should only be considered contributors if they created those items specifically for this entry.

Lastly, remember that entries must be free of advertisements, otherwise they will be disqualified.

So with that out of the way, let the submissions begin!

UPDATE: We were having some configuration issues with the submission process, but they're fixed now. If you tried to submit a video, you will need to resubmit. Sorry for the inconvenience...
