Third Annual Saxxy Awards
The Third Annual Saxxy Awards is a Team Fortress 2 contest announced on October 2, 2013. The event is based on that of the previous years.
The categories are "Best Comedy", "Best Action", "Best Drama", "Best Short" and "Best Overall". A short category was added this year to give a better chance to those who make great videos in under a minute. This year all entries needed to be made with Source Filmmaker, so no films from the Replay Editor could be accepted.
- Entries must be no longer than 5 minutes, except for entries to the Short category, which can be no longer than 1 minute.
- Each entry must be at least 720p.
- Entries must be rendered using the Source Filmmaker, although those renders can be further edited with post-production tools for titling and other effects.
- Entries must be submitted using the Source Filmmaker's Submit Video to Saxxy Awards menu option.
- Only entries submitted between Nov. 11, 4:00 PM and Nov. 18, 4:00 PM PST will be considered. (between 00:01 Nov. 12 and 23:59 Nov. 18, GMT).
- Voting begins Nov. 18 and continues until Nov 24
- Winners, selected by Valve from the community-chosen nominees, will be announced by Nov. 26.
- All co-creators must be finalized by the submission deadline to be considered.
- You are free to use any Valve IP.
- If you use any non-Valve IP, you must be the copyright owner or have explicit permission from the owner and include a URL to the included work or creator's online presence in the description of your entry. This includes music, character likeness, etc. Any submissions found to be infringing non-Valve IP will be disqualified.
- Multiple submissions per person are fine.
