Where would the Half-Life story be without teleporters to spice up the action? Well Gordon’s adventures would have been a lot less dramatic for starters but that’s another story.
We want you to get familiar with the various methods of teleporting in the Source engine and then let your imaginations go wild and see what you can create.
Here’s a really useful page that explains how to get one-way or two-way teleporters working:
Valve Developer Community: Teleporters
For more complex teleporter set ups take a look at these links:
It’s worth remembering that it’s not just the player who can use teleporters.
NPCs can use them and even physics objects can be transported through them for some extra fun (change the trigger_teleport flags on the trigger brush to activate these).
Perhaps you want to create a manic firefight… or take some inspiration from Aperture Science and create some fiendish puzzles.
Anything goes in terms of setting or theme but some form of teleporting must play a major role in the gameplay of the level you submit.
The deadline for submitting maps was:

Entrants will receive points for each challenge they enter.
At the end of the event, the best 3 points totals from the challenges they entered will be added together for each entrant.
These totals will decide who wins the Grand Prizes.
This means that entrants do NOT have to enter each and every contest to win the grand prize but they will need to have entered at least 3 challenges to have a chance of winning the grand prizes.

- Station 0 by easimer: It’s recommended to play this map on easy or normal difficulty as the final fight can get messy.

- Signal Lost by November: Thanks to Crowbar and Klems for helping me test and providing feedback.
Michael McGee AKA HQDefault originally submitted an entry called Tele-Communications. Unfortunately, it had a bug that when triggered seem to require the complete reinstallation of Episode Two! He is currently working on a fresh version and hopes to release it at some point in the future.
The RunThinkShootLive.Com introduction video was made by Jeff Muñoz (ThatoneJeff)” and he also significantly helped with logo design – thanks Jeff, you ROCK!
