Style Tips


Title formatting:

Capitalize The First Letter Of Each Word

Documentaries: Add (year released) after the title.

Trailers: Include the title only. We'll add (trailer) to it after you submit.

Note: The title will also become the URL for the video or article.
Ex: filmsforaction.org/watch/this-is-the-film-title-2019

 


Description tips:

Use the Tx button to remove formatting weirdness.

Put web links at the end or embed them in the text. Links at the beginning look bad on the site. 

Turn web URLs into active links using the paperclip button. 

 

 

Is your video submission a series or broken into multiple parts (part 1, part 2, etc)? 

After you submit part 1's URL, please add the additional parts in the Other Parts (optional) section

Help keep our library clean and organized by not submitting each part as a separate video. Thanks! 

 

 

Presentation makes a difference.

Following the style guidelines above will ensure a higher rating. Thank you!
