Competition seeks mashup apps of local and central government open data
Posted on 8-Nov-2010 08:46 | Tags Filed under: News



New Zealandís IT and web community are being encouraged to let their creative juices flow by developing mashups of existing local and central government content and data, as part of the Great NZ Remix & Mashup competition, challenging Kiwis to develop new creative content using existing New Zealand digital content and data.

There are several Mashup categories and an open category with the condition that your entry must include at least one data source from New Zealand central or local government. Archives New Zealand has offered never-released-before film footage, the Department of Conservation has released sort after track and hut data and New Zealand Transport Agency has also released highway data for use.

All entries go in to win the supreme award for a NZ mashup, $10,000 cash prize, awarded to the most outstanding mashup entry that shows the value of open New Zealand content or data.

The competition, organised by DigitalNZ, NZ On Screen, Creative Commons NZ, Open New Zealand, data.govt.nz, Creative Freedom and the National Library, aims to encourage New Zealanders to use, and be inspired by, existing free digital content and data in their own creative work. It also aims to strengthen relationships between digital content and data producers, software developers and creative communities.

Entries for this competition close 30 November 2010, with winners being announced 10 December 2010.
