Each year, beginning around November / December the Mod DB Mod of the Year awards are kicked off. For two months voting is open to everyone, and every mod is eligible (released or not) with the ultimate goal being the unearthing of this years best mod, as decided by you.
During this time, all mod profiles show a big "vote now" button. Members & guests recognise the mods they like by simply pressing the button (note. guests are limited to one vote). After 2 months of voting the competition is locked down and results tallied. The winning mods will be notified and shortly hereafter the results will be shared.
Update: The MOTY results are here - check them out! Compared to previous years, it felt a little slow due to a slew of new games been introduced with new SDK's to learn. As mod teams made the switch to the next generation engines, so the learning process re-began and it took quite some time before

As mod teams made the switch to the next generation engines, so the learning process re-began and it took quite some time before we started to see what the new breed of mods were capable of doing. We are still a fair way off maximizing these engines potential so there are certainly exciting times ahead!

If any of you old schoolers out there remember Counter-Strike was not that good on it's own first release. Modding isn't a bunch of kids any longer it's teams of adults who live in the same area and work in a small room and in some cases it's a College Course Credit. We even have modders who do it just for the thrill and the accomplishment to say they made something crazy. For example, The Hot Coffee mod. His goal was to make it fun and silly for the mod leaders friends to play. The end result was history. The media and the politicians started to look at modding in a new light. On a good note gaming publishers looked at mods more and more for inspiration and to hire team members in 2005 then any other year. Many of the mods in the list were aiming for a late 2005 release so expect a awesome 2006 and have fun!
