It depends on the style of convention. It's always wise to research the competition you are entering.

From experience I've seen both types of entries win at various venues. For example:
At Fan Expo, Canada's largest multi-genre expo, (91,000 attendees), over all the years of masquerade solo entries have won 50% of the Best In Shows.
I've never run the numbers for Anime North, but I know that Anime North's masquerade has been won by Solo's, Duos, and Groups over the years. I have won in all these group types before I was the director.
Likewise I have often seen solo competitors win at Costume-Cons
People are often intimidated by entering solo, but a lone costume presented in the correct way can be very striking and have great presence.
Big group entries can be impressive in size but remember a group is only as strongest as it weakest link.
