It’s time to announce the Saxxy Awards for 2017, and we couldn’t be more excited!

We can’t wait to see what variety of amazing videos you create! Don’t forget that all Valve universes are available for use, and SFM shorts that were submitted to the Dota Short Film Contest are also eligible for this year’s Saxxy Awards. The submission deadline is March 8th, 2018, but as always, we’d like to remind you that you can upload non-final versions up to a week in advance of the final deadline, to guard against last-minute computer failures, internet outages, YouTube login problems, etc.

Check out the guidelines for details on the rules and deadlines, and get your entries ready!
