To help with our announcements of winners on SM if you happen to have a high quality MP4 of your render we will have a section for you to upload that too as well. Keep in mind that for our voting we do only use GIFs so we do require these as a must to enter.
This is an optional addition. A high quality MP4 render of your asset can be submitted in our forms. These will not be used to Judge the entries but will be used within our Social Media posts. To display the winners of the contests.
Now that you have you GIF, GLTF and "Faces" Image, you can begin to upload your entry to the submission form, so that the judging panel can vote on it. The link to this form is provided in the article (i.e., on medium) which announced the contest. Feel free to share your submission on Social Media if you'd like.
Note that the closing time for entries submitted on this form is usually (but not necessarily always) 00:00 UTC on the day of the contest's deadline. That means you need to submit your entry before then.
For example, this means that if the contest deadline is the 4th of April, then the very latest you can submit your entry is 11:59pm UTC on the 3rd of April. The submission form will lock at precisely 00:00 UTC, unless stated in the contest announcement.
