Competition Events

In Aotearoa New Zealand for GovHack 2023, there will be six competition events taking place, physical events in Auckland, Christchurch, Wellington, Whanganui, Whangarei, and the digital event across all of Aotearoa New Zealand. (2024 locations TBC)


Award Event

Following the competition weekend, it is time to hear who the winners of the challenges are. The award event will take place around four-to-six weeks after the competition weekend. This gives times for our judges, both official and you, to have a look over all the entries and give them the time they deserve.

Details coming soon!
