It is that time of the year again when we see the best filmmakers compete on the international stage of Dota 2.
The Short Film Contest has made a return after a long interval because of the ongoing pandemic. Valve is now accepting submissions for this year’s event.
The Short Film Contest was not held after the postponement of The International 10 last year. However, Valve recently announced the dates for TI10, you can read more about it here. Following the tradition like every year the company is openly accepting clips that highlight talented filmmakers in the Dota 2 community.
Similar to past years, Valve has invited the community to the Dota 2 Short Film Workshop to take part in the voting and discussion procedure. Valve will showcase the best films as part of The International broadcast. After reviewing the Workshop’s votes and discussions, the company will introduce the best clips in the Dota 2 client for a final voting contest to determine the winners.
The winner of the contest will get USD $25,000, followed by second place USD $10,000 and third place USD $5,000. Finalists from the top ten will get a guaranteed $500.
Valve has provided guidelines for video submissions. Less than 90 seconds videos, at least 1080p quality and including Dota 2 are some of the mandatory guidelines. For more information on the same visit Dota 2 Short Film Contest site.
