Event Details

GovHack is about getting our best and brightest around the country 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.

GovHack is about finding collaborative ways to work across the whole community, bringing government, industry, academia and civil society together to achieve amazing things. It is about creating something new, it is not about breaking things.

GovHack is not just a competition. It is the opportunity to show off the Community and it’s innovative skills, and the chance to encourage Government to open up data.

The event requires small teams of competitors to produce any kind of "hack" using government data in around 46 hours, from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon. The format of a "hack" is unspecified, but the most common are web applications, mobile applications, or visualisations. Together with all source code deposited in an open source repository and open-licensed, each team is judged on a three-minute video they must produce, demonstrating what they have produced and its future potential.

Please read our Competition rules and Code of Conduct before registering.

For the events in Northland, Auckland, Whanganui, Gisborne, Wellington and Dunedin you can order your tickets here, if you want to go to Wellington use this link.

We are also still seeking industry mentors for the events - please let us know on your registration if you would like to help in that way.
