Mod of the Year Contest


Since it’s the end of the year, everyone’s talking about their picks for Game of the Year (right now I’m torn between Super Mario Galaxy, Bioshock, Halo 3, and Everyday Shooter). In similar fashion, over at Mod DB, they’ve already kicked off the nomination process Annual Mod of the Year Awards. Looks like there are some great prizes for the winners: Gaming Rigs, Logitech prizes, cold hard cash, and more.

You can nominate a mod from one of our games (Oblivion, Morrowind, or Star Trek: Legacy) or one of the other games listed…it’s all good (Fallout 2 is even a choice). To give an example of how to nominate a mod, first head to this link. You’ll see that you can select a game from the drop list that says “Any Game.” For example, if you select “Oblivion,” you’ll get a list of choices. For example with Oblivion, if you click on the first choice, NPCs with Jobs, you’ll then go to a page that has a “Vote for Mod” link at the bottom…it’s that easy.

Good luck to all the modders out there.

  1. Glad to see this competition being mentioned, since it’s one I like because it’s free to enter – all you have to do is to upload your mod details onto the site, and they do the rest. If you have any questions, the admins there are pretty helpful.

    They have various categories, along with ‘Honorable Mention’ runner-up titles, so even if you don’t win a prize, you can get a nice trophy graphic for your trouble. Last year, Morrowind was recognised in that way, so any mod is in with a shot, but because pretty much any mod for pretty much any game is eligible for entry, there’s a lot of competition.

    Good luck to all entrants.
