PROJECTS THAT DON'T FOLLOW THESE RULES WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED!
X WORLD IS ALIGNED WITH THE LIGHT AND WITH GOOD VIBES.

Please don't ask to submit for free. The submission fees are the means to help to support all the necessary expenses, that are significant, especially in a Festival with a real Live Event in a real place!
Occasionally you can find discount codes on the Festival Social Media (Twitter and Facebook)!
