* Your mod must NOT be older than 2009.

Rule Clarification:

For those who are entering the 'Unique' category, at least 2 of the 5 required CM components used must be of different type (i.e. 4 fans, 1 heatsink).

To maintain a fair contest for all participants, we have also added some rules for special cases:

If you are entering the contest as a group:

* You must keep only one worklog on the CM Forum.

* Please use one CM Forum Account Screen name throughout the entire contest to avoid confusion.

* All prize packages are the same regardless of individual or group entry.

If you plan to do self promotion of your mod:

* Absolutely no benefits can be involved for either you or any voter.

* Your promotion cannot be too extensive to a point that it bothers/annoys other CM Forum members.

If you plan to use sponsored components for you mod:

* All modding work must be done by you, not the sponsors.

* You cannot do any advertising for the sponsors or any product in your worklog (i.e. posting links to online ecommerce sites for the product).

For more details, please refer to the Rules page on the Modding Contest homepage:

Can I ask something? I am planning to get some sponsors but I have to post a link to their store with a picture on my first page in order the get them as sponsors....!!!

Why they will sponsor us if they will not be advertised? Please do something about it cause many of us dont have the money and they need sponsors! Thanks!

ps: PM me please! Thanks!

Hi AnG3L,

It's an understandable situation.

But unfortunately, we need to stay with the rules in order to provide a fair competitive environment for all participants.

We really appreciate your enthusiasm for the contest, hope you can still join us.

Thank you.

I would have a suggestion: two levels of competition, one for professional modders who have all types of sponsorships, pro level tools (a portable band sander costs around $700usd, twice as much as ALL of my tools), and who can afford to contract to third parties extensive work on their mods. The other level would be for non-professionals who do 100% of their work by themselves, nothing fancier than a dremel for tools, no sponsorships, and who consider modding as a hobby.

If this is not possible, use a point system on different aspects of each mod, grading self made work higher than contracted work. For example a pretty and well made hand-made grill over a laser or water cut grill done in some expensive specialty shop.

I, as I suppose the great majority of enthusiasts, for example, cannot afford a third party job worth hundreds or even thousands of dollars. I would rather spend that type of money on new hardware (eg.: a new Cooler Master Case & a V-10)! In spite of this, and a low budget, I only hope that originality and resourcefulness counts more than big bucks spent.

Just my two cents.
