Australian Computer Society is a proud sponsor of GovHack, an annual open data competition held all over Australia and New Zealand. Teams are eligible for some great prizes, in addition to honour and fame at their Red Carpet Awards.
GovHack is about getting our best and brightest, working with government data to innovate and create. It is about encouraging and celebrating our technical and creative capacity, connecting citizens with government for great outcomes, and building upon the social and economic value of open data published by government.
In 46 hours teams create a proof of concept and a video that tells the story of how the data can be reused.
