    Competitive in what way? Highest level athletes? Most prestige? I would say that ADCC, Pan Am, and IBJFF Worlds would all be up there.

    I think IBJFF is the largest but I don't think any really hold prestige over the others. You'll see top level players competing in multiple ones.

    There are also a lot of "pro" invitations popping up. Metamoris, Submission Underground, etc. High level stuff. I like the EBI ruleset.

    Yep. I didn't mention those because the OP asked about the most prestigious. Since those you mentioned are somewhat new, and oftentimes are having trouble filling their cards, I didn't quite see them in that light. I hope they grow as I like the submission only idea. I'm also curious to see what the JJGF does not that they are up and running. Rickson mentioned tweaks to IBJJF rulesets, but I am not sure exactly what he was getting at.

    Cbjjf in Brazil, ibjjf and adcc. Pop up events just pick fighters and have too many 20 min snooze fest draws
