Hirst Arts Design Derby
The Hirst Arts Design Derby (commonly known as the HADD) is a yearly building contest hosted by Scott Spieker on his web site called VoidGamers.

The next contest (HADD 12) will begin August 1st 2013, so be sure to
start working on your entries as soon as possible!

A few winners from HADD 11:

Belthrasí Tower

Ronjas Tower

Alchemical Laboratory

How the HADD Works
1. Build and paint a model out of Hirst Arts blocks. The building should be at least 70% made out of Hirst Arts blocks to qualify.

2. Take some photos of your model from various angles. You'll need to use a digital camera, because you're going to send the files to the Voidgamers web site.

3. Sign up on the Voidgamers web site here. It's free to sign up, and you can also upload photos of your work anytime for the everyone to see.

4. When the contest starts, upload your photos onto the Voidgamers web site (it's easy). The next contest (HADD 12) starts in August 2013.

5. Each contestant gets one vote per-catagory. However, you are unable to vote for your own entry(ies).
