Dear Art of War contestants, The winners of the Art of War contest have now been announced! You can find out who they are here. On behalf of everyone at Bohemia Interactive, as well as our partners at the International Committee of the Red Cross, I'd like to say a massive and heartfelt thank you to all of you who participated. There was an amazing number of entries in our 2D Art and Bonus Screenshot categories, which made for some really tough decisions when it came to deciding on the winners. Sadly, for the 3D Prop, Accessory, and Clothing categories, we did not have so many and felt that those we did receive didn't quite meet our requirements for the charity DLC. That said, a number showed promise and were obviously the result of a lot of hard work, so to reflect that, we will be sending out some participation prizes. On a related note, our team has decided to create a small number of assets to add a bit of extra value to the Art of War DLC, which in turn will help raise funds for the ICRC. These will be developed by in-house artists and will see a range of fun thematic props and clothing items arriving to the Arma 3 Sandbox. These will also be supported by a new scenario and showcased in an in-game virtual gallery, specially designed by us as part of the charity DLC. We'll be sure to keep you all informed and provide updates as we draw nearer to release at the end of the year. Again, thanks to everyone who entered and congratulations to the winners!
Dear Art of War contestants, New Bonus Category Owing to popular demand, we have decided to create a new category for screenshots in the Art of War contest! This bonus category has no set theme or subject and can include previously published work. However, it does have a separate, non-tiered prize structure. The creators of the six best screenshots will receive an Arma 3 t-shirt and a limited edition Arma 3 silver medal, alongside a Steam key for a back catalog of Bohemia Interactive titles. As with the winning and selected entries for the 2D artwork category, winners will have their submissions exhibited in-game, in a virtual gallery showcase. In addition, unlike the other categories, there will be no nomination of any finalists - only winners. Furthermore, participants are invited to submit their entries via Twitter, using the #Arma3ArtofWar hashtag, or direct by email. Alternatively, you can submit your entry using the Submission Form. If your screenshot is chosen for the gallery, or if you are a winner, we will contact you with a direct message on Twitter or by email (depending on your submission method). Entries in this category will be judged by Bohemia Interactive developers. Regrettably, it may not be possible to display all screenshots or artworks submitted in the Art of War DLC. Similarly, entries in the 2D artwork category must be on the set theme in order to be considered. If you're interested in entering this category, please check the Contest Rules here and take a moment to read through the requirements below: Content Requirements Screenshots must be taken in Arma 3. Post-processing and any additional edits using image editing software are acceptable. Technical Requirements Screenshots should be in a high resolution (1280x720 px or higher) Screenshots can be submitted by: Posting on Twitter with the hashtag #Arma3ArtofWar. Emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Using the Art of War contest Submission Form, linked here. Ideally, please do not add vignette effects or strong overlays (such as interlacing) to your entries, if you hope to have them featured in the Arma 3 Art of War DLC's virtual gallery. If submitting via the Submission Form, the image file(s) should be contained in a single folder, labeled 'Screenshot'. Screenshots and the 2D Artwork Category In addition to the above, we are also accepting screenshots for the 2D artwork category. Please note, that the theme of 'International Humanitarian Law in future conflict' is still required. Screenshot entries that are sent to us which do not meet this theme will automatically be entered into the bonus category, so you will still have a chance of winning a prize. Once again, good luck to everyone taking part and we look forward to seeing your entries!
Dear Art of War contestants, Broken Links After viewing our first batch of submissions for the contest, we have noticed that many entries have incorrect or inaccessible links. Although we have tried to encourage the validation of these, we recognize that it is very easy to copy and paste an erroneous URL. Fortunately, there is still plenty of time to check and amend your entries! But please, do ensure we can access them, preferably by logging out of your hosting site and verifying each link separately. Here is a quick summary of the problems we have encountered so far: Incorrect links Restricted access (e.g., permissions required to access submission, especially Google Drive) Generic Google Drive links, referring back to non-specific users (e.g., https://drive.google.com/drive/my-drive) Links to incorrect Google File documents Empty submission folders (not a problem if you're aware! Submissions can be placeholders) In addition, we are noticing that most of our entries are not being submitted correctly. Of course, we will do our best to retrieve your data, but to ensure your entry is considered, be sure to read through the Contest Rules thoroughly, particularly the section giving information for submissions. Better yet, you can even use our submission templates. There are different templates for each category. Please refer to the image at the bottom of this post to see how your entries should look. For further information on sharing documents, please refer to Google Drive's dedicated help page. Not Following the Theme Finally, we would like to remind you that the theme of 'International Humanitarian Law in Future Conflict' for the 2D art category is mandatory. Sadly, we have received some very nice artwork, but several submissions do not engage with the theme at all and will consequently not be considered for a prize. Similarly, it may not be possible to include them in our virtual gallery. If you are struggling to think of a concept for the contest's theme, you may find inspiration in the Helpful Links thread in the Contest Resources forum. If you would like to submit an entry but are not sure if it meets the theme's criteria, please do feel free to email us at email@example.com. Some examples of subjects relating to the contest theme might include: Autonomous weapon systems and loss of human control. Cyber warfare and its impact on civilian infrastructure (such as hospitals, electricity grids). New weapon technologies: legal and ethical considerations. Opportunities to increase respect for International Humanitarian Law using advanced technology. For example, an image showing a soldier, firing their weapon, without any further context, would not be appropriate for the theme. However, a soldier firing their weapon at civilians, whilst also being monitored by a humanitarian reconnaissance drone, to enforce the laws of war, would. Good luck everyone - we're really excited by what we've seen so far, and can't wait to see what else you will come up with!
Hi everyone, We would like to let you know that certain entries in the Multiplayer and Addon categories may now also be submitted to the Make Arma Not War Dropbox. Whatâ€™s changed? Over the past few weeks, we received several e-mails from contestants in the Multiplayer and Addon categories who - for technical reasons - were not able to submit their work to the Arma 3 Steam Workshop. As a result, we've decided to allow for certain exceptions in the Multiplayer and Addon categories. If contestants are not able to submit their work to the Steam Workshop (whether it's because of file size, complications with servers, or otherwise), they will now have the possibility to submit their work to the Make Arma Not War Dropbox. How does it work? If you are competing in the Multiplayer or Addon category, and cannot submit your work the Arma 3 Steam Workshop, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the e-mail, you should clearly state why youâ€™re not able to submit your work to the Arma 3 Steam Workshop. Make sure to also include the link to your entry on the Make Arma Not War website (if you have it), so we know which entry is yours. If your request is accepted, we will set you up with a shared drive on our Make Arma Not War Dropbox. You can then use this to share your files with us, and a Steam Workshop submission will no longer be required for your entry. I still have questions. As always, if you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us via email@example.com. Good luck in the contest! Note The Singleplayer category will still need to be submitted to the Steam Workshop. This is because, in this category, public voting will select the finalists - and we want to keep it as easy for people to install, play, and vote for these entries. (Existing contestants in the Multiplayer and Addon categories will also be contacted via e-mail. The application process on www.makearmanotwar.com has been updated to inform new contestants about this alternative possibility.)
