More info about featured dataset
As a sponsor, you can submit a dataset (or datasets) which will be featured to competitors. There are over 7000 datasets that can be used in entries. As a sponsor you can shine some light on your data, and encourage reuse in the competition by submitting featured datasets.
Alternatively, you could feature a theme of data from your publishing organisation by submitting an appropriate link.
The dataset(s) featured must be in line with our open data principles and at a minimum must be:
- Discoverable on an official government data portal
- Open format
- Openly licensed
Various sponsorship packages are available for both Corporate and Government sponsors.
Each State and Official Location also offers attractive sponsorship opportunities.
