Bohemia is giving out 500,000 to Arma 3 modders

Big plans for next year

"Make Arma Not War" is the name of an upcoming Bohemia Interactive contest which should greatly help incentivize community-led content creation for Arma 3. The studio is giving out €500,000 in prize money and here's the kicker: "Projects which show a lot of potential might also be offered a contract by Bohemia Interactive, whether they have won the contest or not." Potentially the start of someone's career, in other words.

The competition spans four categories -- single-player, multiplayer, add-on, and total modification -- with the top prize of €200,000 going to that last category. The other three will have the prize pool divided up into first (€50,000), second (€30,000), and third place (€20,000).

Interested parties can begin working on their projects, but applications for Make Arma Not War won't be accepted until next year. Submissions are due by October 28, 2014, and the winners will be announced on January 15, 2015. This contest is exactly the type of thing I'd expect Bohemia to do -- hope it works out for them, content creators, and players.
