Event Information

GovHack is an annual Open Data competition held across Australia. In 2018 it will be held on the weekend of 7 - 9 September.

In 46 hours teams create a project page, proof of concept and a video that tells the story of how government data can be reused.

Challenges are announced at 7pm at your venue and on this website. The competition closes at 5pm local time Sunday 9th September.

Some venues will keep the doors open all 46 hours! However good ideas need sleep, so the USC event will close approx 8pm and reopen at 8am in the morning.
