Bringing together the thinkers and community innovators
Here is your chance to make a change in the community. If you're involved in any form of communication industry, whether it be as a storyteller, artist, computer coding guru or a general problem solver, GovHack Wyndham wants you!



This is a competition which brings people together and connects members of the community to the government to initiate ideas and change.

The 46 hour non-stop event will run in the Wyndam City Civic Centre from the 28th - 30th of July. This is an Australian and New Zealand wide competition with various locations in each state.

Wyndham City Council will publish their current data on the following topics: People and Community, Places and Spaces, Earning and Learning and Leadership and Participation. It will then be up to competition participants to come up with solutions whether it be new apps, websites, design or other ideas.

GovHack is also open to 13-18-year-olds and will have a dedicated cash prize for this group. There are four cash prizes for winners and 2 cash prizes for runners-up.

So, if you know of any coders, data analysts, graphic designers, writers or Wyndham City Council members who are interested in joining in, please go to Wyndham GovHack.

"Form your own team and hustle to produce the greatest open data creation! GovHack is for everyone from artists and storytellers through to developers and entrepreneurs" - GovHack.

Register for the information night on Thursday the 13th of July here.
