Humanitarian Innovation Awards 2021
Hackathon Expression of Interest

The below form is to be used to express interest in and/or register for either of the Humanitarian Innovation Award Events. The Pitch or The Hackathon.


The 3rd Annual Humanitarian Innovation Pitch is currently accepting national applications, with submissions OPEN until Sunday 18th April 2021! This is a national submissions contest designed for university students, at all Australian Universities, to develop innovative technological or engineering solutions that support human welfare through benevolent treatment or assistance to people for substantially altruistic reasons. Students are encouraged to select a real-world humanitarian problem and develop technology-driven solutions. 

Submissions are comprised of a short video encapsulating the essence of a student's idea, accompanied by a written brief showing evidence of how each solution could be achieved.


Our Humanitarian Innovation Hackathon is a weekend-long virtual & on-site event designed for university students to work collaboratively in cross-discipline teams to create technology-driven solutions for the most pressing humanitarian challenges. Participants are asked to identify practical solutions for real and current problems from a current international humanitarian response context.

The HIA Hackathon runs from 23-25 July 2021. Participants are expected to be available for the entire duration of the event. Submitting your details in this form is not an official registration. You will be officially invited to participate at a later date.
