However, it's also thanks to the people who have taken part by submitting to the contest, playing the entries, voting themselves and watching what's been going on that the Hacking Contest is a good ongoing success that gets better by the year. Hopefully the next contest will be announced in the upcoming months, with some changes being made having seen what worked, what didn't work and how things could be improved this week - all those involved in running the contest will be discussing what is needed for the 2015 Hacking Contest.
