Valve has announced the start of accepting applications for participation in this year's Dota 2 Short Film Contest. Filmmakers have until 3:00 pm PDT on September 4, 2022, to submit their short film creations of 90 seconds or less to the Dota 2 Steam Workshop to be eligible for consideration.
Dota fans around the world are invited to visit the Workshop to discuss and vote on their favorites to help us select the best entries to be showcased as part of The International 2022 broadcast. Upon review of the Workshop ratings and discussions, Valve will nominate the top entries to be featured in the Dota client for a final voting process by the community to determine the winners.
Each finalist that reaches the top ten will be guaranteed to win $500, and the top three selections will score prizes of $25,000, $10,000, and $5,000 in recognition of their contributions to the Dota community.
