  • You do not misrepresent the relationship between Valve, Barcraft United, and yourself, in particular you do not present the event as being supported or endorsed by Valve or Barcraft United.

This license only covers the official video feeds produced by Valve in the English, Chinese, Russian, Spanish and Portuguese languages. If you want to use community casts or independent third-party video feed productions in your event you need to clear the necessary rights in those with the producers of such content.

Media share opportunity

  • Notices of Recording MUST be prominantly displayed at all entry points where you plan to capture official media at your event. Organizers are expected to retain some form of photographic evidence of notice placement for random post-event audits.
  • Organizers MUST retain proof of venue approval for on-site recording during your event, either in writing or a short video recording. Barcraft United support will contact organizers to ensure compliance. Organizers without evidence of approval wont qualify for this opportunity.
  • Events taking place in private homes (approved only in limited geographical regions) do not qualify for the live streaming opportunity.
  • Submitted media must be broadcast appropriate and must not contain any offensive, discriminatory, or explicit content.
  • Participation via the submission of media and/or a stream link does not guarantee appearance on official broadcasts or social media.
  • Specific additional Terms and Conditions will be digitally distributed closer to the broadcast date, which must agreed to for participation.

Non-broadcast events submitted by trusted organizers bypass initial staff verification and correction. Please double-check your spelling, grammar and event details. Events are randomly checked to ensure quality.
