The 2014 Premier’s Awards for Open Data launched on 10 August 2014 and the competition closes midnight Friday 26 September 2014. Prizes totalling $15,000 will be awarded to the winners across three prize categories:

  • Best use of Open Data
  • Best commercial app
  • Best community app.

There are also prizes for the best Queensland school student entry and the best public servant entry.

As a partner for the awards, Microsoft is also offering the StartUpQ prize (to the value of $60 000 AUD) to the entrant who demonstrates the greatest start-up potential.
