And so, the 2018 Sonic Hacking Contest has come to an end. We’ve been covering the event all week for you with round-up articles and 22 hours of live stream coverage. All of the hype and anticipation has built up to this: the handing out of trophies. Who won? The list is down below. As for announcements, here is what was confirmed:

  • SuperEgg is stepping down from the roles of Media Manager and Judge.
  • CodenameGamma will be a new judge, as well as StephenUK.
  • Some jerk called SSF1991 will be the new Media Manager.
  • Some improvements to the official site and the contest as a whole will be made in the wake of SHC 2018.

Thank you to everyone that tuned in to our streams, that checked out our articles, and were overall supportive of our coverage throughout the week. This was the largest coverage we’ve provided for a Sonic community event in quite some time, and we hope you enjoyed it. We’ll be back next year, so stay tuned for that, as well as coming announcements for SHC 2019, as they are officially announced. In the meantime, here are the list of winners:
