You may submit up to 10 videos.
Entries do not appear in the gallery right away. Videos will go through an initial screening and review process. If there are violations of the rules, your video will be disqualified. Please note that making it into the gallery is NOT a guarantee that your spot complies fully with the Official Rules - it just means that no obvious violations were identified during initial screening. It is also possible that a submission that makes it into the gallery could be removed in the event a rules violation is reported or discovered later.
