Red 5 Studios has announced a new contest for Firefall fans: The Battleframe Trailer Challenge.

The contest, which runs until March 16, challenges players to piece together raw gameplay footage and music (provided by the developer) into a trailer or commercial highlighting their favorite battleframe, similar to the Dreadnaught Introduction shown below. Upload these videos to YouTube, and Red 5 will judge submissions based in part by the likes and views of each submission.

The grand prize will be an all-expenses paid trip for two to PAX East 2012 plus $500 spending money. Other prizes include an Alienware M14x laptop and an ASTRO Gaming A40 Audio System (Firefall branded).

“At Red 5 we’re very community-focused and this contest is a great way to get everyone involved in the game,” said Red 5 CEO, Mark Kern. “Since we’re always making action-packed Firefall trailers we thought it would be cool to see what our fans could come up with.
