Govhack Australia 
GovHack events now open for registration!

Thank you for registering your expression of interest for GovHack 2013. 
We are pleased to announce that the event registration is now officially 
open, so get in and reserve your spot at 

All location details can be found at http://www.govhack.org/locations/ 

GovHack runs nationally from  May 31 to June 2 2013, 8 locations in 
Australia will come together with over 400 participants and 150 teams to 
play with government data and create unique solutions and services. 
Solutions which then have a chance to become reality with over $40k in 
the national prize pool and a further $120k of local prizes. These 
prizes are divided up into competition prizes and some quite innovative 
entrepreneurial packages to encourage our best and brightest to further 
develop their ideas beyond GovHack.

Last years competition saw government partner with developers and data 
enthusiasts to discover what technologies could improve how government 
makes it data available and services better, but this year we have set 
up the competition to enable government agencies to invest in promising 
projects beyond the competition.

This is a big shift for the competition which the GovHack team is hoping 
pays off with some tangible outcomes for both the developer community 
and government. In addition this year NICTA,'s eGov Cluster, one of the 
major competition sponsors, will run a showcase in Canberra for 
competition winners to talk about their ideas and entries with start up 
managers and industry heads.

GovHack provides government with the opportunity to see what hacker

to offer.

The competition is expecting a big list of Federal and State/Territory 
Government agencies, but is also attracting a lot of attention from some 
of premier brands of the ICT sector. This includes support from Platinum 
sponsors NICTA, the eGovernment Technology Cluster and Microsoft. 
GovHack is also supported by Gold sponsors Palantir, Google, Relational 
IO, Link Digital and more. There are also a number of strong local event 
sponsors and supporters around the country including the South 
Australian Government, Gold Coast City Council, Landgate, the Tasmanian 
Government, the ACT Government, Intersect, Newcast and AusGOAL.

All government supporters will be announced in the coming weeks, but 
thus far there has been strong support from several State and Territory 
Governments and the following Federal agencies: the Department of 
Finance and Deregulation, Geoscience Australia, the Office of Spatial 
Policy, National Library of Australia, National Archives of Australia, 
Australian Bureau of Statistics with more to be announced!
