Dubbed the southern hemisphere’s biggest hackathon, GovHack will run across Australia and New Zealand from 6 to 8 September, with teams from both countries competing in the 10th year of the event.

Over a 46 hour period the teams will create a proof of concept and a video that tells the story of how open data can be used to solve a problem in our society.

The concepts will include innovative community apps, websites or creative visualisations that demonstrate the potential of open data and showcase the skills of talented participants.

Organisers say the goal of the event is about encouraging and celebrating technical and creative capacity, “connecting citizens with government for great outcomes", and "building on the social and economic value of open data”.

Last year there were over 1,500 participants, 240 projects and 26 locations and this year organisers say sponsors already include Infosys, Amazon Web Services, Department of Social Services, Australian Financial Security Authority, and many others.

This year, for its 10th anniversary, GovHack organisers are hailing the “positive hacking” that has come out of over a decade of staging the event.
