What if something goes wrong?

In case there is a problem with your file upload we have a backup called the MD5 checksum code. We can use this to validate entries were completed before the 7 pm Deadline using a 'digital signature'. This needs to be sent to us in the online wrap-up form (BEFORE 7 pm on Sunday) and can prove that the film existed before the close of the competition. It is optional but it is an insurance policy in case things go wrong.

Out of Town Teams

If you cannot make it to the physical hand in locations in one of the centres then you can register as an out of town team.

When you register you will need to select the closest city and then tick the Out of Town box. Your film will play in the heats of this centre and that city manager will be your point of contact.
