Submission Guidelines

  • Produced or released after October 31st, 2022.
  • Generated or manipulated by computer.
  • Produced in Minnesota or surrounding regions.
  • The submissions that are included in the MET Show Reel will be determined by the Jury. Each entry will be judged separately and in its entirety.
  • Running time: 4 minutes or less. All pieces should be edited down to 4 minutes or less so that we can show as many pieces as possible in our 55 to 70 minute screening. Due to the limited length of the reel, the jury may give preference to shorter pieces, or request to show only a portion of longer submissions. This may occur even when a submission is less than 4 minutes long.
  • Submissions that are over 4 minutes, but split into 4 minute chunks will not be accepted.
  • Entries will be judged based on various features including: concept/story, look and feel, objectives/success, innovation/creativity, animation, modeling, and audio.
  • We will not be accepting submissions through mail.
