Yes, they have a masquerade. The top few awards come with cash prizes. There's also likely to be swag of some type for winners, stuff like figurines, manga, T-shirts, free con badges (to PMX or to other cons), etc.
As a Pacific-Asian media event, the PMX masquerade is much more inclusive than the typical anime con. In addition to the typical "anime and Japanese video games" costumes, people sometimes enter with stuff like J-rock costumes, original themed lolita outfits, K-pop, Avatar: the Last Airbender, and so on.
