GovHack 2013 has been scheduled for May 31 - June 2 2013 and will include a number of locations around Australia with participation from federal, state and local governments. The competition will include national and local prizes and is a great way for Aussie developers to strut their stuff with government data. By also combining user experience and service design with hacking and GovCamp, the 2013 GovHack will be bigger and better than ever.
If you missed out on a spot in a city near you, add yourself to the waitlist ("add to waitlist link" next to Perth) and we will notify that list of any spare spots closer to the event. You can also register as a remote participant.
The national competition will kick off at 7pm Canberra time May 31st but locations around the country will start at slightly different times to deal with the time differences. Full details for your event will be sent to you by your local team.
We are expecting several hundred projects from the 2013 competition, so local prizes will be given out on the weekend, but the national finalists will be voted on after GovHack and national prizes presented at GovCamp 2013, Thursday the 6th June.
