apps4nsw was the first State Government apps competition in Australia. The objective of the apps4nsw competition was to capture innovative ideas using public sector information and data that are useful to the people of NSW.

In the direction of open government, apps4nsw has grown and is an avenue to engage with the public, industry and government employees to improve the delivery of government services using ICT. 


In this round, the apps4nsw program will be divided into two parts: the apps4nsw challenges, and a Hackathon event held at this year’s CeBIT.  CeBIT runs the world’s largest computer expo and their Sydney conference is expected to draw over 500 exhibitors and 34,000 business visitors from across industry, from start-ups to multinationals.  Entries for this round of apps4nsw challenges and the Hackathon challenges open at 12pm Tuesday, 7 April 2015 and close at 12pm Wednesday, 22 April 2015 (EDST).  Please click on the links on the right-hand side of the page for more information.

Please note the deadline to submit entries for this round of apps4nsw and Hackathon challenges has now passed.
