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.

The Rules

  • Entries must be no longer than 3 minutes, except for entries to the Extended category, which can be no longer than 5 minutes, or entries to the Short category, which can be no longer than 1 minute.
  • 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.
  • Voting begins Wednesday, November 11, and continues until Monday, November 16, 3:00 PM PST
  • Winners, selected by Valve from the community-chosen nominees, will be announced Wednesday, November 18.
  • All co-creators must be finalized by voting deadline to be considered.
  • You are free to use any Valve IP.
  • 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.
  • Multiple submissions per person are allowed.
  • Submissions must be free of advertisements.


Voting began on November 11, 2015 and concluded on November 16 at 3:00 PST.



On Wednesday, November 18, 2015, winners were announced on the Source Filmmaker site.

All winners will receive a Saxxy for their accomplishment.

The winner of Best Overall will be flown to Seattle, WA for a tour of Valve and to meet Valve's filmmakers.

The winners of each category were announced through a global announcement with all the creators named. Players were given the option to watch the entry through Steam's in-game browser.
