Q
How can I submit contest entry files larger than 20mb?

A
Due to the prohibitive costs and complexities involved with managing such large file sizes, we have taken a cue from other online contests and are requesting that you make your work(s) available online for judging.
 
We will be accepting links (URLs) to your remotely hosted files/content.
 
If your work is not currently accessible online,
we suggest using one of the numerous third-party file hosting/sharing service providers.
 
These services allow you to upload your file(s) and retrieve/share a private link to the content, for FREE.
