GovHack is an annual Open Data competition held across Australia. In 2022 it will be held on the weekend of 19th - 21st August. 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.

Attending a GovHack event

GovHack is a free event to attend for competitors. GovHack events are recorded in video, audio and photographic form. By attending, you acknowledge and accept that you may be the subject of such recording and your image may be publicly displayed in connection to the event. We will seek to accommodate but cannot guarantee any specific wish not to be recorded or image displayed.

Node events may not have all the bells and whistles of an Official event. They are unique as they cater to our community groups with Youth, Makers or Special Interest themes.
