There are 3 events you can participate in, each with their own rules and prizes. We've added the basics of each event to this article, along with links to the full details.
Just so you know, this contest isn't directly affiliated with Nexus Mods, we just think it's really cool and that our community will enjoy it.
Update - 1st December 2020
The deadline for all competitions has been extended from 11th December 2020 to 26th February 2021 23:59 (UTC+3) to give you extra time to refine your scenes.
TaleWorlds are also working on some new updates to the Modding Kit and introducing a Photo Mode to the game.
Scene Design Contest
Modders are challenged to use the new Modding Kit to create a village scene using the Scene Editor tools. If you're wondering what counts as a "Village Scene", you can check out this handy page with a list of all the elements you'll need to create one. An important point to note is that your location must be original and not based on a third-party IP (so no Lord of the Rings or Skyrim settlements!). You can read the full contest details here, including how to submit your entries. ?
Scene Design Contest Prizes:
1st Place - BANNERLORD CUSTOM PC by Intel®
2nd Place - Intel® NUC 9 Extreme Kit
3rd Place - Intel® Core™ i7-8700K Processor
If you'd like to show off the mods you've made during the course of the event, we've added a handy "Creative Contest 2020" tag which can be added to your mod uploads.
2D Art Contest
Flex your artistic muscles with a drawing, painting or a piece of digital artwork with a Bannerlord-related theme and you could win yourself a powerful little NUC computer, a new processor or a funky Bannerlord mouse mat. Once you've got your artwork ready, simply post it on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #BannerlordCreativeContest to enter. Full contest details are available here.
2D Art Contest Prizes:
1st Place - Intel® NUC 9 Extreme Kit
2nd Place - Intel® Core™ i7-8700K Processor
3rd Place - Mount & Blade II Custom Razer Gigantus V2 Large Mouse Pad
We'd love to see what you come up with, so we've added a new category to the Bannerlord media share. Upload your artwork here!
The final contest is a perfect fit for users who love to share their screenshots. TaleWorlds have said, "we want entrants to imagine themselves as a war reporter and capture an iconic moment from their adventures". As with the 2D art competition, all you need to do to enter is post your screenshot on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #BannerlordCreativeContest. The top 10 entries will earn themselves a Bannerlord-themed mouse mat (pictured below) to liven up your desk with. Full details and FAQ here.
Screenshot Contest Prizes:
10x Mount & Blade II Custom Razer Gigantus V2 Large Mouse Mat
Please also consider sharing your screenshots in the new "Creative Contest - Screenshots" category in the image share here at Nexus Mods.
The event is live right now and runs until 23:59 (UTC +3) on 26th February 2021, with the winners scheduled to be announced shortly after. Good luck everyone!
