Submissions for this year’s Short Film Contest are now open via the Steam Workshop and submissions will remain open until September 4th, 2022. The DOTA community will be able to review all the submissions and vote for their favourites. The top 10 entries will be shown at the International 2022 in Singapore.

Each finalist that reaches the top10 will be guaranteed to win $500.

Submission Guidelines

  • Entries must be no longer than 90 seconds.
  • 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 1080p.
  • The deadline for submission will be Sunday September 4th 15:00:00 PDT. The submission process must be completed, including uploading the video and filling out submission dialogs, before the submission period ends.
  • Submissions will be reviewed by the Steam community on the Steam Workshop. The top entries will be selected by Valve in its sole discretion to be featured in-game for a final vote by the community, and the winners will be announced at The International 2022.
  • Submissions must be submitted to the Steam Workshop under the ‘Dota 2 – Short Film 2022’ game. DO NOT submit the videos under ‘Dota 2’.
  • The video must be a new creation made specifically for the Dota 2 Film 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.
