It's time to get our creative minds going! While most of us for the common good are still working from home and avoid physical contact until further notice, it's even more important to stay active in some way. Before you put down roots on your couch and just get up for a walk to the fridge, only pausing to apathetically look through the window to observe the arrival of spring, participate in our contest instead! Yes, of course there's something for you to win, too!
No contest without prizes, that's for sure! First place will get a framed plaque to hang up on your wall. First place as well as second and third will get a merchandise box with Farming Simulator goodies as well as a download code for the next (still unannounced) DLC as soon as it's released. Don't worry it's not THAT far away, but we won't tell you what it is right now. That's mean, we know.
2nd & 3rd Place
Whatever: It doesn't have to be a professional style trailer. Go wild! Do anything! A parody, a short story, or something focused on atmosphere. You have complete creative freedom in making your video. Only important things are the use of Bourgault machines (do you need map suggestions?) and minding the terms of participation above (meaning no mods featuring brands and machines not officially featured in the base game, etc.). Everything else? Up to you!
Whether you produce an epic trailer with lots of action, effects and a moderate amount of story just like a Michael Bay movie or you direct a romantic short movie depicting the idyllic farm life between large-scale machinery which will cause viewers to shed some tears in light of the exuberant degree of romanticism... it's really up to you.
All submissions will be examined by our jury. Some of them will be shared on our blog and social media channels in the course of the following weeks. Our jury will decide which videos are the best, also taking in account your feedback on the submissions when we show them on social media, our forums, etc.
How we judge the videos? Well, let's say the more creative the videos are the better are your chances to win. Use the PlayerActionCamera mod available on our Modhub to make it easier capturing cool scenes from the game. But you don't have to use it, if you're wondering.
You can convince our jury (which is not taking any bribes) not only by high-quality presentation but with unconventional ideas, too. Our judges will then decide in a secret video meeting maintaining the recommended social distance.
