GSHI Anniversary Contest
The GSHI Anniversary Contest (generally called by the year it resides in, as in "GSHI 10th Anniversary Contest") is an annual event held at GSHI.org, wherein members of the scene may test their meddle in direct competition with one another.
The Contest is comprised of three separate events:
1. Hacking Competition - Hackers test their mettle in a hacking challenge utilizing an emulator. A link to the emulator and required ROM is given at the last minute, along with the code(s) to be hacked. The winner takes home a $75 gift certificate to EB Games, and a GSHI.org t-shirt.
2. Gaming Tournament - Gamers face off in an online tournament, whose platform and games are unveiled a few days before the opening of the tournament (to provide an opportunity for gamers to become accustomed with the platform and games, to offset as much as possible the potential advantage that gamers who happen to have experience with the given platform and/or games might possess), in what is generally an elimination system (two gamers face off at a time, and after all pairs have jousted, the winners pair off, and so forth, until there is only one remaining winner). The winner takes home a $75 gift certificate to EB Games, and a GSHI.org t-shirt.
3. Artwork Contest - Competitors create a unique piece of art in the form of a GSHI.org logo, which will be voted on by GSHI admin staff. The winner takes home a $75 gift certificate to EB Games, a GSHI.org t-shirt, and his/her logo will be on the next year's GSHI.org t-shirts.
