Please make sure to read all rules before submitting your entry.

  1. Entry forms will be accepted from March 30 - May 30. We will not accept entry forms before or after these dates.

  2. As long as you have already filled out an entry form, entries can be posted from June 2 (previous year) - June 1 (current year). Entries posted before or after these dates will not be considered for awards.​​ See rule #9 for more information.

  3. Entries must be at least 1 minute in length.

  4. You are allowed to enter up to 3 entries. If you submit to the "series" category, you may only submit one entry for that specific category. We do not consider trailers for the "film" category anymore.

  5. You must upload your entry to YouTube to be considered for awards. Please fill out a submission form linking us to your completed entry so we can add it to the playlist.

  6. You must use one of the Sims platforms for your entry. (If you want to get creative, we will also allow other titles such as Sims City to participate.)

  7. Most sensitive topics are allowed as long as a disclaimer is included before the entry video. We believe in expressing creativity and do not want to restrict subjects to deter directors. If you are concerned about a subject in your entry, feel free to contact us!

  8. If your entry is purposely hateful, it will be disqualified for awards and promptly reported.

  9. You may submit pre-existing machinima as entries, as long as they were created after our last season's submission deadline (June 1). We do not want people to feel obligated to rush and create something new for the ceremony, so we allow our contestants to submit pre-existing machinima.

  10. If your entry is in a different language than English, we require English subtitles/closed captions for our moderators to properly view it.
