Saxxy Awards winners have been announced by Valve, but to find out which short film won for Best Overall you’ll have to tune into the Spike Video Game Awards pre-show December 7, which is next Friday night.

Entrants were tasked with putting their Source Filmmaker skills to use creating short films based on Valve’s intellectual properties.

Here are your winners with links to the video:

Each winner received a Saxton Hale statue and the winner of the Best Overall category will be handed a trip to Valve Headquarters where the firm’s Source Filmmakers will host a session.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.

  • Spike VGAs renamed VGX, dated for December

    The Spike Video Game Awards, where we’re likely to find out more details on much of the new PlayStation 4 content revealed today, have been slapped with a new name and a release date.

  • VGAs 2012: a new hope (despite the Newell gaffe)

    Two steps forward, one step back. Last night’s VGAs showed reason to hope for a respectable awards event in the years to come. They might want to leave Garry out of it next time, though. Catherine Cai reports from LA.
