Fifth Annual Saxxy Awards
The Fifth Annual Saxxy Awards is a Team Fortress 2 contest announced on August 21, 2015. The event is based on that of the previous years.
The categories are "Best Comedy", "Best Action", "Best Drama", "Best Short", "Best Overall" and a new category called "Best Extended". As with the last year, all entries needed to be made with Source Filmmaker, so no films from the Replay Editor could be accepted.

- Each entry must be at least 720p.
- Entries must be rendered using the Source Filmmaker, although those renders can be further edited with post-production tools for titling and other effects.
- Entries must be uploaded to YouTube, added to your Steam profile, and associated with the Fifth Annual Saxxy Awards.
- Only entries submitted between Wednesday, November 4, 3:00 PM and Wednesday, November 11, 3:00 PM PST will be considered. (between 23:00 November 4 and 23:00 November 11, GMT). The submission process must be entirely completed before the submission period ends.

- If you use any non-Valve IP, you must be the copyright owner or have explicit permission from the owner and include a URL to the included work or creator's online presence in the description of your entry. This includes music, character likeness, etc. 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.
