Cooler Master annual modding contest to offer US$20,000 in prizes

The contest has consistently showcased the biggest modding talent on the planet with many winners also going on to pick up bit-tech's Mod of the Year crown in the following January

Cooler Master has announced its 2013 Case Mod Contest, with cash and hardware prizes that total up to US$20,000.

This year's competition, sponsored by, Asus, GeIL and Plextor, has Tower Mod and Scratch Build categories. The former must be a Cooler Master chassis, however there is some flexibility with other manufacturer cases in the Scratch Build category; all logos must be removed and the case should not be recognizable compared to its original design.

You also cannot have started the project before May 2013 and you must submit your entries (yes you can enter more than one project) by January 1st 2014.

Hardware plus cash prizes await the 1st place x 1, 2nd place x 2 and 3rd place x 3 winners of the two existing categories. Register and start your worklog now! See full contest details at: mod.coolermaster.com

Winners of the 2013 Mod Contest will be calculated based on public votes (30 per cent of total score) and judges’ scores (70per cent of total score). This year includes cash prizes for 1st and 2nd place winners in both categories of US$1,000 or US$500 respectively.

While I´m not happy about the fact you can´t use non CM cases for the casemod (even if they are unrecognisable after as they allow for scratchmod), I think I´ll be joining this year as I´ve never participated before.

Definitely going to be entering the scratchbuilt category this year. Had an idea lined up for a while now and this would be a perfect opportunity to give it a go!
