It is that time of year again, when the digital and tech world look up from their busy workload just long enough to make sure that they are “represented” with a kickass submission for a panel or two at the most prestigious conference all year, SXSWi (South by Southwest Interactive Festival). New and old interactive companies alike have been wrangling their online communities for panelpicker votes since mid-August when voting commenced for a coveted shot to win a chance to present their vision to a guaranteed crowd of A-List digital and tech influencers that will gather together in Austin, TX the week of March 8, 2013.
Time has run out for community voting on SXSWi panels and is now in the hands of the judges, but there is still time left to compete for fame and fortune via scholarships, awards and entry into the SXSW Accelerator.
SXSWi has listed the following information on their site:
- If you or someone you know is doing amazing work with technology to help their community, nominate them for a chance to win a scholarship to attend SXSW Interactive. Hurry, the deadline for scholarship applications is this Friday, September 14th: http://sxsw.com/interactive/awards/scholarship
- Want to share your digital masterpiece with the SXSW digerati this March? Show off your hard work by entering the 16th annual SXSW Interactive Awards: http://sxsw.com/interactive/awards/about
