Episode length can vary, as long as you submit at least three ​episodes. Best practices indicate episode length of at least 0:30.

Who is eligible to submit to the Rizzle Contest?

This contest is open to anyone who identifies as Asian/Pacific Islander worldwide, that is 18 years of age or older. English subtitles are encouraged for non-English language content for the consideration of the judging panel process.

Can I submit more than one video?

You can make as many series and as many episodes as you like! We will be evaluating each proof of concept for quality, watchability, and repeatability for multiple episodes.

What is the level to which I can go in terms of creative freedom and censorship?

We do not censor, but given the broad audience on Rizzle, PG-13 is the overall guideline. Hate speech/ racial epithets may never be used. Use your best judgment. If a level of sexual content, violence or speech would realistically justify an R rating, please creatively consider alternatives. We recommend you bleep any F-bombs.
