Create and submit new items (such as armor, weapons, clothing, Couriers, and more) for consideration to be incorporated into the actual game. Or help identify the best by rating up your favorites. Submission Guidelines
Guidelines Entries must be no longer than 1 minute.
Entries must pertain to Dota 2.
Entries can use any form or combination of animation or live-action technique in their creation. Using Source Filmmaker is not a requirement.
Each entry must be at least 720p.
The deadline for submission will be 04:00:00 PDT on the morning of July 13th, 2015. The submission process must be completed, including uploading the video and filling out submission dialogs, before the submission period ends.
Nominees will be selected by the Steam community through voting on the Steam Workshop. Winners will be selected by Valve in its sole discretion from among the community-chosen nominees, and will be announced at The International.
The video must be a new creation made specifically for the Dota 2 Filmmaker Contest.
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. You will be required to warrant to Valve that you have all necessary rights and permissions in order for the entry to be considered. Any submissions found to be infringing non-Valve IP will be disqualified. Note that for workshop items, you still need to provide a link to the items used, but you do not need explicit permission from the creator, since submission to the workshop automatically grants permission to use the item.
Multiple submissions per person are allowed.
Submissions must be free of advertisements.
Prizes The winners will be announced and showcased at The International. Valve will award $20,000 in prizes to the entry or entries we consider the best.
How do I upload a submission? Details on how to enter and submit your video will come at a later date.
If you are a contributor who has shipped an item in any Valve title, we would like to invite you to join us at The International. Badges to attend The International will be available free of charge, though you will be responsible for your own transportation and boarding costs.
We would also like to offer you the opportunity to customize your Contributor badge to feature your art. If you are interested in attending The International or customizing your Contributor badge, please contact us here: email@example.com
Like last year, we will have areas for contributors to interact with the community, and your Contributor badge will also give you access to special contributor areas. We will have more information about the Contributor experience soon.
