CONTEST EVALUATIONS FROM THE JUDGES
Unlike previous years, when people had to wait some time for them to be done, we made sure to do something about it this year, all judges were expected to have their evaluations ready with their trophy voting.
And we have done so! Please click the following link where you can access our Google Drive folder with all the evaluations for each category.
Do note that SuperEgg has had some unfortunate computer troubles, they may be uploaded in a day or two, but the other judges have all evaluations.

SEND IN YOUR FEEDBACK FOR SHC
Sonic Hacking Contest 2021 Evaluation
We value all your feedback to let us know how we did with this year’s event and what we should do for next year’s Contest Week.
We have tried our absolute best to improve from last year which could have been done better, and we do know there are still some things we need to do.
Whether it’s site improvements, entry access, an area just for entrants to include things for Judges and Media Panel only such as save files, changing the trophies (including bringing back the themed names - we’ll get back to you about that), there really is a lot we could do better.
The evaluations for SHC will remain open for a few weeks, if you get some time please fill in the form and let us know what you thought!
SHC CONTEST WEEK 2022 ANNOUNCED!
For once, you will not have to wait until next year to know the date of this.
We are announcing that the SHC Contest Week will take place from Monday 10th to Sunday 16th October! All the details including the deadlines and changes made for next year will be announced in due course, so please wait.
WHAT'S NEXT FOR SHC?
For many years, SHC has only had the Contest Week. But we know, SHC could be a lot more than that. After the reception this week, and discussions with other participants, we certainly want to expand SHC to more than just a Contest Week. This will need more than our Judges to help pave the way.
People want Mini Contests during the year, they want a place to share information and off-contest entries throughout, and we certainly want to try and bridge the gaps that remain in the hacking and modding community.
SHC wants to help do something about it. We know people want more in this community, and SHC can help with this. However this will take time. And we certainly want the community’s input on what you want to include.
So we’ll be taking suggestions regarding this on our SHC Discord which will remain open throughout the year. And hopefully we’ll have something to show off next year. But for now, let’s have some recovery time to rest up.
