The BOSS Contest (Break Our Steganographic System) has been inspired by the former BOWS contests on watermarking organised in 2005/2006 for BOWS and 2007/2008 for BOWS-2 . The currents organisers thank the organisers of the BOWS contests (M. Barni, A. Piva, S. Voloshynovskiy and F. Perez-Gonzalez and T. Furon) for the development of the first contests related to data-hiding technologies.

The current BOSS contest is organised and designed by:
- Tomáš Pevný (Researcher in Czech Technical University, Prague).
- Tomáš Filler (PhD Student in Binghamton University, USA).
- Patrick Bas (CNRS researcher in Lagis, France, former researcher in Gipsa-lab)
