    It's time once again to announce this year's Saxxy Awards, and we couldn't be more excited! Last year we shook up the rules a bit by reducing the length of the themed categories (Action, Comedy, Drama) and adding a five-minute Extended category. We were overwhelmed with so many high-quality entries to the Extended category that there were some great entries that didn't get the recognition they deserved. So, if you're working on an entry to the Extended category, it may be worth editing your piece down to three minutes and submitting to one of the themed categories instead. We know it's not easy, but solid editing can make a good submission great!


    As always, we can't wait to see the amazing videos you create! Don't forget that all Valve universes are available for use, and SFM shorts that were submitted to the Dota 2 Short Film Contest are also eligible for this year's Saxxy Awards. The submission deadline is November 11th. Remember, 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, login problems and so on. Check out the guidelines for details on the rules and deadlines, and get your entries ready!

    Calling it: Someone's going to make a very high-quality saxxy complaining about the MyM update.

    And it wins.

    I would take part in the Saxxy, if I actually got any ideas for animations. 6 months since I made my latest video...
    Kind of sad when I think about it.

    Since nobody else brought it up: kinda unfair to let basically finished shorts from the DOTA 2 short film contest participate in the Saxxy Awards. They're already finished (or nearly there, only requiring some final polish), while people only doing Saxxy work still need to start form scratch putting them at a disadvantage.

    Exactly why did you quote me and then not leave a message?

    I seriously doubt that the Saxxy entires were started when the Saxxys are announced. That'd be fair, but I don't think that there is a rule against it, so why put yourself at such a disadvantage. People have probably been working on entries for months up to this point.
