Brisbane Youth - Queensland

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.

Doors generally open at 6pm local time Friday 7th September (confirm with event times below). 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 many will close late and reopen in the morning.
