So being an AAF Seattle member saves me money?!
Am I already a member?
How can i become a member?
Where do I turn in my Physical entry?
Do I need a physical entry form?
If your entry ever had a physical creation in the real world, then yes, you will need a physical entry form.
There are only a few categories that do not require a physical form:
Entries in all Online/Interactive categories (#37–47 and 75)
Entries in all Film, Video & Sound categories (#48–71)
Entries in select Elements of Advertising categories (#85–98)
I am submitting a physical entry but the program is requiring me to upload a file to complete my entry.
What if I don’t have one?
You can upload a jpg or pdf with a file that simply says “Placeholder”
Should my physical entry be mounted?
Do not mount your physical entry.
At other levels it could even cause your entry to be disqualified.
Will I get my work back after judging if it does not move on?
No. You will forfeit any submitted materials, images, etc.
Exceptions are only made in very rare cases.
