Unleashed is about getting 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.
In 46 hours teams create a proof of concept and a video that tells the story of how the data can be reused. Many of the concepts are innovative community apps or websites. There are also a heap of entries that mash up data and display it in an informative visualisation or a creative artistic display

Unleashed Open Data Competition
The competition brings together anyone who has an interest in unlocking the potential of data, and includes entrepreneurs, coders, web and application developers, graphic designers, journalists and researchers. Teams work together to create new mashups, data visualisations and apps using open data from government, research and industry.
In 2014 the competition was held 11-13 July at the Flinders University, Victoria Square and at Mount Gambier. The competition included Machinery of Data (MOD) which merges open data with hardware and art.
Participants submitted a 3 minute video highlighting their entry. You can watch all the South Australian entries via the GovHack website.
Congratulations to the Unleashed 2014 winners!
