Modding contests is something that I think is very exciting if it is done right and done for the modding community, like the one on Birdie for example, where it is a warm and fuzzy feeling, everyone are friends and gets to show of their builds and share experiences.
Dreamhack have also started having modding contests now, Dreamhack is a much bigger LAN-event than Birdie so it might not get the same feeling, although its still very nice to see.
Dreamhack Summer 2016 starts in less than two weeks and between 18-20th June they will have their Casemod Championship there. Here are some information about the contest:
