Videos that are submitted will be selected by a committee, and those selected will be screened at the main theater of the Sapporo Short Fest. One CGM grand prix winner and two winners of the CGM award will then be selected. The deadline for the contest is July 10th and you can submit your works here on their submission page.

Copyrighted works, such as music, art, CG, and others, must be cleared by the copyright owners before you can submit your work. If your work is selected to be screened at Sapporo Short Fest, you will be asked to provide a higher resolution source for your video. Contestants may work as a group to submit a single video too. You will have to upload your work once it is completed to somewhere like YouTube or NicoNicoDouga to submit it, as they do not accept files.
