By on December 6, 2013 at 7:53 am

Sticking with the hyper-realistic tunes of ArmA 3 this morning, Bohemia has also announced the “Content Creation Contest” for ArmA 3. Titled Make Arma Not War, it hints at a staggering 500,000 Euro prize pool across four different categories: total modifications, single-player missions, multiplayer mods and add-ons.

The video’s a brief 41 seconds, although there’s more detail available on the developer’s blog. “The headline prize will be awarded to the winner of the Total Modification category, where the sole victor will be taking home €200,000. In the other categories, prize money is divided between 1st place (€50,000), 2nd place (€30,000), and 3rd place (€20,000),” the blog post says.

There’s a curious line immediately afterwards that says potential irrespective of your final placing “might also be offered a contract by Bohemia Interactive”. ArmA has always been a game that’s lived and died by the quality of its mods and it’s fantastic to see Bohemia not being shy about supporting that community. “We’re delighted to be running a contest of such an incredible scope. The Make Arma Not War contest was brought to life to support our dedicated community of content creators, and stimulate the exciting culture of creativity that has formed over the years,” Bohemia creative director Ivan Buchta said.

The Make Arma Not War contest also has a cool tie in with the International Committee of the Red Cross with a Health Care in Danger Special Award. “Given to the entry which covers the topic of ‘health care in danger’ the best, the winner(s) will go on a one-week trip to an ICRC mission in a foreign country, organized by the ICRC.”

Submissions close on October 28 next year, with the winners to be announced on January 15 the following year. Considering what the community’s like, the bar for entries is sure to be frighteningly high so you’ll probably need a year to get it right. Great news, nevertheless, and good luck to anyone who has a crack.
