Canada Amateur PC Modding Competition 2017 Launched

Sign-up is Open Now Until November 6th

Canada finally has their own modding competition! Hosted by DazMode, the signups for the Canada Amateur PC Modding Competition 2017 start September 4th and ends on November 6th. As the name says, this is a competition for amateurs so that there is less barrier for entry and is more accessible. That means no sponsored projects are allowed which are unfair for beginners.

The event is sponsored by Thermaltake and Darkside Computer Modding. Judging will be done by notable modders Stephane of Snef Computer Design, Jesse of JP Modified and Erik of EZgunna82 PC Modding. Anatoly “Daz” Babkin of Dazmode will also be a judge of course. On top of the winning entries, bonus awards from the sponsors are out for grabs. This includes best Thermaltake casemod, and best waterloop as well as best LED lighting use.
