QuakeCon 2013 Case Mod Contest

For the Second straight year Modders-Inc will be hosting the QuakeCon Case Mod Contest. Last year (The Awesomeness that was Quakecon 2012) was a great success for the modding community and for QuakeCon. Being so successful Modders-Inc was asked to bring back our high level of professionalism to the largest and best case mod contest in the USA. Between our modding contest prize pool and what we gave away, we had just about ~$12,500 in prizes to give away. As we gather prizes and information for QuakeCon 2013 we will update the page.

The scoring will be broken down into five categories each based on a scale of 1 – 10; with 10 being the best. Categories include Concept/Design (1-10), Creativity/MODS (1-10), Workmanship (1-10), Attention to Details (1-10), and Special Features (1-10).

Final scores are determined by adding the score from each category together. The highest score will receive the grand prize and the second and third highest scores will receive runner-up prizes.

NOTE: Judging will be done on Saturday,  we need to have 3 hours prior to the announcement of the winners to tally the scores and to contact the winners. Contest finalist will need to bring their case mods to the announcement area to display their mods. Last year it was on the main stage and at the final party for all to see!
