Question Time from GovHack 2015 –– art by Rex SmealThe (Inter)national GovHack 2015 Red Carpet awards were held in Sydney last night! The game –– Question Time –– that I created together with Jon, Tim, Josh, Arabella, Rex, and Sebastian, won a few awards! They are:

  • 1st Place for Best Open Government Data Hack (sponsored by the Department of Finance and the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare)
  • 2nd Place for Best Entrepreneurial Hack (sponsored by Telstra and the Department of Industry)

Locally, in the Tasmanian prizes, we won:

  • the Design Excellence award, for the most usable, complete and appealing designed hack;
  • and the Most Disruptive award!

The hard work of everyone on the team really pulled off! Every year I participate in GovHack, the quality improves, and the team work really makes it come together beautifully.

The full list of winners, international, national, and local, is on the GovHack website. Thanks to everyone who organises, hosts, sponsors, and participates in GovHack. It’s a huge amount of fun! This was the third time I participated, and it definitely won’t be my last.
