The hack::Brisbane competition challenges the developer community to help improve Brisbane through the creation of creative new apps, websites or tools that use Brisbane City Council data.

In order to enter the competition all you need to do is create an app, website or tool that uses one or more of Council’s datasets.

There are two prizes of $10,000.

Open category
Prize: $10,000 for best website or application using Brisbane City Council data.

Access & Inclusion category
Prize: $10,000 for an app or website using Brisbane City Council data that helps make Brisbane a more accessible and inclusive city. To be considered in this category, the app or website should focus on making facilities and services universally accessible to all residents and visitors – be they people with disability, carers, seniors, people with temporary impairments or parents with young children.
