Unleashed is South Australia’s annual open data competition which is part of the GovHack competition held across Australia and New Zealand. In 46 hours teams create a proof of concept and a video that tells the story of how the data can be reused.
Unleashed is a series of events designed to get our best and brightest, working with government data to innovate and create.
It is about encouraging and celebrating our technical and creative capacity, connecting citizens with government for great outcomes, and building upon the social and economic value of open data published by government.
Full details of the competition categories are not announced until 7pm Friday of the competition weekend. Participants are in the running for:
- GovHack National prizes
- Unleashed South Australia state prizes
- Local event “Best of Location” prizes
