Some of you might be a little confused because when you click the submit link, it takes you to the movie upload page. If you've already uploaded animated movies to the website, you can still enter them in the competition. All you have to do is go to your BoomZone, and click edit on the "My Movies" boom. Under your movies is a link that says "Add to Competition". Just click on it. FYI: Showreels are not eligible to compete.
