There's two big ones a year here. The Great Arizona homebrew comp in March, and the Arizona Society of Homebrewer's Oktoberfest comp in October/Novemeber(which is coming up).
There is also a Coconino county competition in September. I believe entries are due for that one within the next couple weeks.
Also look for competitions in California and Colorado. Both have really big brewing communities, and generally have big competitions with quality judging. I just recently shipped two beers off to the Gnarly Barley festival in CO. I think there were like 250 entries or so in that comp. (It costs around $5-10 to UPS a few bottles to CO or CA)
