If you were to compare aikido competitions to other martial arts you would find similarity in the techniques and tournament rules of Judo  and some of the style, rules and scoring points of Kendo.
Though there is a mixed event team competition and variations of rules for juniors and non black belt players, essentially there are two forms of contest.
One is"randori shiai" (free contest) where two persons battle each other similar to Judo and winning is achieved through successful application of  Aikido technique or submission or by obtaining  the most points for partly successful techniques.  The contest is made up of two halves of 2 minutes each.
 The other is"kata enbu shiai" (demonstration contest) where a pair of players demonstrate a series of techniques of attacking and defending and are judged, similar to gymnastics, against demonstrations by other pairs. Usually two pairs compete at a time and the judged winners move on to compete against winners of another kata contest. 
In kata enbu shiai there are two types of demonstration, one is a free style demonstration of a series of techniques made up by the contestants themselves and the other is a demonstration of one of the traditional set forms.
Randori contests are male against male or female against female in separated events and there is an  individual event and a team event for both male and female. Kata contests can be mixed male/female pairs or same gender pairs and all compete together in the same event.
The mixed 5 event team contest (kongo dantaisen) is a mix of two kata and three randori contests against another team. The number of wins decides the winning team.
There are competition events for juniors and adults.
