Snail Awards: Heroes Redux
Attention! This news was published on the old version of the website. There may be some problems with news display in specific browser versions.

Welcome to the second installment of the Snail Awards Video Competition!

After the success of the first Snail Awards, which was based all around the game's Combined Battles approach, we are again looking for the best Community-made trailers about War Thunder - but this time, we want you to re-interpret a true War Thunder classic, the Heroes Trailer from 2013.

Did you know that there's a concert version of the theme song? Find it on YouTube here!

The Task: Heroes Redux

Create your own War Thunder trailer featuring the Heroes Trailer's theme song. Whatever the topic, whatever the focus - you decide, as long as it fits perfectly to the music. Goosebumps time! Make sure to exclusively use War Thunder in-game footage, put the music's credits in the outtro of the video (details in the competition's Terms) and you're good to go!

You can download the Heroes Trailer's music in WAV and MP3.
Please note that you may only use this track in connection with the competition, unless authorized seperately by us.

After you're finished, upload it to War Thunder Live with the hasthag #heroesredux. Participation is possible until the end of March 31st, 2016, with the winners being announced a few days later.


After considering the great amount of effort and enthusiasm shown by the creators during the last Snail Awards competition, we've decided to this time do justice to the great work done - and outright double the prizes!

20 000 

15 000 

10 000 

Please note that the amount of winners per award is not limited. If we have so many great contributions that multiple trailers qualify for a Golden Snail Award, so be it! We're looking forward to as many submissions as possible. Good luck!
