QuakeCon 2014 Computer Case Mod Contest

Modders-Inc will be back as the host of the 2014 QuakeCon Computer Case Mod Contest. Each year has become more successful for the modding community and for QuakeCon. Being so successful Modders-Inc was again 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 at the 2013 QuakeCon Case Modding Contest, we had just about ~$12,700 in prizes to give away. As we gather prizes and information for QuakeCon 2014 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), 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.  In case of a tie the tying mods will be deliberated by the judges and a winner will be picked.
