Newgrounds Wiki: Game and Movie Guidelines

In addition to the rules outlined in our Terms of Use:

You must be the creator and owner of the content you are submitting.

You must have rights to the music in your submission, or be using royalty-free or no-copyright music. Your favorite song from the radio can't be played here.

Your submission must not be a modified version of someone else's work.

Your submission must not auto-redirect to a new site or open pop-ups. If your submission auto-spawns something to boost stats on another site, your account will be deleted and admins for the target site will be notified.

Your submission must not simply be an ad for your site.

Your submission must not be shovelware made to serve ads or promote your site. If you didn't take personal pride and care in the creation of the content, leave it off NG.

You may not submit photography or video of naked people.

You may not submit photography/video images of excessive gore and/or "snuff."

Do not submit illegal photography/video such as child pornography and bestiality. We WILL contact the FBI!

Sexual content involving underage characters is prohibited, please don't look for grey areas.

Our focus is on animation. If you want to try live action here, it must be a short film with legit production value and preferably some animation component done in post production.

Your submission must not be racist or downright hateful towards specific groups of people.

You may parody existing movie submissions but you must create your own artwork.

Personal attacks towards other NG contributors will likely result in removal.

Your submission must not be a pointless "demo" or "preview" without any redeeming qualities.

Do not submit something that is merely a sound visualizer set to music, or a recording of your music project timeline. If you want to promote your song in the movie portal, it should be set to original animation like a proper music video; otherwise stick to the Audio Portal.

Do not submit movies or games made from public files, such as tutorial files.

Do not submit pictures in a slide show format.

Do not upload galleries of images you've found on the Internet.

Do not submit copyrighted video clips or photographs that you did not create.

Do not submit low quality entries with the intent to give users "free blam points."

Do not swap out your original entry with something totally different.

Do not re-submit your entry after it has been BLAMMED without making noticeable improvements.

Your game must not use Angry Birds or Super Mario Bros. characters/sprites. In general you shouldn't be using any sprites you don't have full rights to.

Make sure your submission has been properly rated.
