Local events

Welcome to GovHack ACT 2017!

GovHack is back in 2017 and, as usual, it’s all 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.

In 2017, the GovHack weekend starts at 6pm Friday 28 July 2017 and competition closes at 5pm 30 July 2017.


Sponsoring GovHack ACT

In addition to national sponsorship, we also provide local organisations the opportunity to directly sponsor the ACT. Money raised through sponsorship goes to directly support our competitors. GovHack is a community event, organised and run by volunteers. Your sponsorship will go the distance!

Becoming a “state” (territory!) sponsor gives you local visibility at the GovHack ACT awards night. There are even more benefits! Please read our sponsorship prospectus.

Become a mentor for GovHack ACT

Are you an authority on datasets, or a subject matter expert?

Competitors will need guidance on data sets and experts to bounce their ideas off. Over the competition weekend, you too can contribute to GovHack by supporting the achievements of our participating teams! Find out more here, and please consider registering as a mentor.
