Unearthed Brisbane is a 54 hour open innovation event featuring challenges from global resources companies. The event invites innovators to come together over a weekend to develop prototype technologies to one of the challenges on offer. Innovators will be supported by Unearthed and senior representatives from the supporting resources companies, challenge mentors, technology and innovation leaders – so that impactful solutions are developed to deliver impact and transform the industry.
Innovators include data scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, and software developers. Top teams will be awarded cash prizes, credits and future development opportunities. All teams own 100% of the IP they generate at #UnearthedBrisbane.

Can I participate as an individual? I don’t have a team, but still wish to come along, can I do so?
We recommend that you work as a team at Unearthed Brisbane as teams with a diverse set of skills have better chances of producing an impactful solution.
I won’t be able to make it for the full weekend, can I still come?
If you are unable to make one of the days/nights, that’s OK. Just let us know or let your team members know beforehand. If you haven’t formed a team yet and cannot make the Friday night, drop us an email and we’ll try to put you in a team so that you’re ready on Saturday.
Can I participate remotely?
Participation is in-person only (at least 1 member of your team must be present at the event).
What is the cost? And what does it involve?
Innovator tickets are for the full weekend. This includes breakfast, lunch, dinner, multiple coffees and drinks all weekend!
Discounted tickets are available for students who wish to take part. Email email@example.com for more information.
When will the challenges be released? Can we start working earlier?
Challenges Titles will be released the week before the event.
Who owns what we make at the event?
All teams retain full ownership of what is created during the event. (*barring any prior agreements you might have with employers, universities, etc…)
