Submittable enables you to add video, images, and hyperlinks to your organization's General Guidelines and a Project's General Settings with a user-friendly text editor. The text editor is a What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) tool so that what you see in the text editor will reflect how it appears in your guidelines.
