Do scalpers keep beating you to that new graphics card? Perhaps you're looking to upgrade that tired old keyboard and mouse? We might have just the thing for you! We've teamed up with Republic of Gamers UK to give you the chance to win an RTX 3070 Ti, one of two ROG accessory bundles or a £50 Steam gift card. 


Nexus Mods was officially founded on 1 August 2001, so this month is extra special for us. We're celebrating our 20th anniversary! This event is a great way to celebrate our journey from a humble Morrowind modding website to now being the biggest modding community on the internet - bringing together over 28 million members from all over the world to share in our joint hobby and love for all things modding. 


If you've ever looked at pre-built gaming PCs or modded your own PC with some new hardware, you might already be familiar with ROG. For those who haven't heard of them though, Republic of Gamers was founded by an elite team of ASUS engineers with the aim to create the world's best gaming experiences. They specialise in high-quality hardware and peripherals built specifically for gamers. We got chatting with folks at the UK office of ROG and while talking about our mutual love of modding, they offered to provide us with some of their awesome products to give away to our community. These might be the biggest prizes we've ever been able to offer to you all, so a massive thank you to ROG UK for partnering with us! 


We've split the prizes across 3 separate categories you can enter between 10 August 2021 and 10 October 2021. You can enter just one or all three. If you submit a mod you can enter it into both modding categories too (if applicable). Full details are below!




Main Category

Posted Image

This is the big one! Upload a new mod to Nexus Mods between 10 August 2021 - 10 October 2021 and add the tag "20 Years of Modding 2021" to your page for your chance to win the ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3070 Ti graphics card, a bundle of ROG peripherals or a £50 Steam gift card. All prizes also include a coveted Nexus Mods drink receptacle. 

Prize Details


How To Enter

  • Upload a mod? for any game (mods containing adult content are excluded from the draw).
  • On the "Mod Details" step, tick the option to enter into the draw OR add the tag "20 Years of Modding 2021" from the mod page.
  • Publish your mod and cross your fingers! 

Winner Selection

All mods uploaded during the event which include the "20 Years of Modding 2021" tag at the end of the entry period will be reviewed by our team. A curated selection will be entered into a randomised draw to determine the 3 winners. When curating the mod entries, we will be looking at a number of factors to judge the eligibility for the final draw, including:

  • Site metrics - Download counts and endorsements.
  • Game popularity - To ensure game communities of all sizes have a fair chance of entry. 
  • Originality - Does this mod bring something new to the modding scene?
  • Effort - How difficult was the mod to make? How much time went into the mod page?
The lucky winners will be contacted by private message on the Nexus Mods website shortly after the event concludes to arrange delivery of the prizes. 


Themed Mod Category

As a bonus, our friends at ROG have included an additional prize bundle for modders who create mods that capture the essence of the ROG brand. They have provided an asset bundle containing an assortment of logos and wallpapers to help you build the theme into your mods and to give you an idea of the colours and styles you should be looking to include. The criteria for entry is intentionally ambiguous to allow you to be as creative as possible, so take a look at the assets provided and see what you can come up with. Once you've made your mod, all you need to do to enter is upload it and add the "ROG Theme Event 2021" tag to your mod page before 10 October 2021

Here are some very basic ideas for mods that would be a good fit for this category:

  • A spell or other magical effect using the ROG colours (and possibly the logo).
  • Outfits or technology featuring ROG brand elements or a general "cyberpunk" vibe.
  • Everything is cooler with RGB lights. 
  • Maybe you can even find a creative use for the ROG theme song? 

Prize Details


How To Enter

  • Upload a mod? that includes ROG elements for any game (mods containing adult content are excluded from the draw).
  • On the "Mod Details" step, tick the option to enter into the draw OR add the tag "ROG Theme Event 2021" from the mod page.
  • Publish your mod and cross your fingers! 

Winner Selection

Mods uploaded during the event which include the "ROG Theme Event 2021" tag will be reviewed by the Nexus Mods and ROG teams to select a winner. The winner will then be contacted by private message on the Nexus Mods website shortly after the event concludes to arrange delivery of the prizes. 

A single mod can be entered into both modding categories, but can only win one prize.



Themed Image Category

Posted Image

If you're not able to make a mod but you still want to take part in the event, we're also running a screenshot competition. Just like the modding category above, this will be ROG themed. Your challenge is to create a screenshot for a game of your choice which fits in nicely with the ROG vibe. You can use the asset pack for inspiration or even showcase mods shared in the Themed Mods Category in new or exciting ways. 

Prize Details

  • Prize 1 - Small Bundle 2: £50 Steam Gift Card + Nexus Mods mug 

How To Enter

  • Upload an image?? for any game (adult content is excluded from the draw).
  • Make sure the title starts with "ROG Screenshot Event".
  • Submit your image! 

Winner Selection

All images uploaded during the event which have titles starting with "ROG Screenshot Event" will be reviewed by our team and a curated selection will be entered into a randomised draw to determine the winner. Images will be judged on their appropriate use of the ROG theme/colour schemes and general composition.

"Nexus Mods was officially founded on 1 August 2021"

Made me think that it's been around unofficially for a pretty long time.

So do the images have to be started with ROG Screenshot Event or Republic of Gamers Event? It says both in the article, just wanna make sure.

Nexus Mods was founded 9 days ago, that's crazy amount of growth in a little over a week! I am happy for this website and our little community of a few million users, all in nine days. Damn!

Jokes aside, good luck to everyone who enters.

I like other Tuff gamers which Asus make, only want better mods.... here's one for though " The Infernal City" . 
Now that would be a mod worth the salt of winning the graphics card .
The Infernal city is a authorised bethesda novel by Greg Keyes about a floating city that moves about and is powered by the souls it extracts from the dead below via its tenticles....you with me ? ....good.
Now the Lore states it was around 20 years after the oblivion crisis and did untold damage in Argonia and Morrowind and was involved in the destruction of Vardenfell and its inhabitants.....for more spoilers read the book and learn something .
That's the challenge on the 20th year of Nexas mods who ever can create "the infernal city " mod that actually works would be worthy if winning .
Think Beyond skyrim , Beyond the Reach , and Rigmor.. quality ......make it a work in progress if need be ...
Question is for those Master Modders ...Are you up for it ?
May Sithis guide you .....regards Oddie from the Dark Brotherhood.
