Cooler Master has just launched its Case Mod World Series 2016 event, which the company calls a "competitive modding event designed to connect modders everywhere".
In total, there are $30,000 in cash and prizes up for grabs, thanks to sponsors ASUS, Avexir, Dremel, NVIDIA and OCZ. Global Community Manager for Cooler Master, Michelle Wu, explains: "Modding has exploded in recent years and is taking root in every corner of the globe. The Case Mod World Series is about fuelling that growth. It's about igniting the modding spirit - the maker spirit - on the web and right in your community. This year, we will be running local events to involve modders everywhere. Together, with the generous support of our sponsors, we hope to enable the modding community the world over".
There will be six judges, Ermanno Bonandini from Italy, Ronnie Hara from Brazil via Japan, Richard Keirsgieter from The Netherlands, Antony Leather from The UK, Richard Surroz and Brian Farrell from USA alongside the sponsors. From their respective fields of expertise, they will be judging the modded cases based on their scores in four weighted areas. Complexity, design, originality, and overall look.
