Unleashed 2016 event dates have been announced – This year the competition will be held over the weekend of Friday 29 – Sunday 31 July 2016.

Unleashed is South Australia’s annual Open Data competition, which is part of the GovHack competition held across Australia and New Zealand. Over one weekend, teams use Open Data that has been made available by government to showcase how we can create innovative services for South Australians.
It is about encouraging and celebrating our technical and creative capacity with government for great outcomes, and building upon the social and economic value of Open Data published by government.
Competition entrants create a proof of concept together with a video that tells their story of how they’ve used datasets. A panel of judges view the entries and decide category and competition winners. Competition prize categories are announced at the launch of the competition weekend.
