Either finish the sentence above or approach the prompt however you’d like – creativity is key!
Five finalists will be selected by the SXSW Selection Committee. Each finalist will get one Platinum badge ($1,650 value) to attend SXSW. One prizewinner will be awarded the David Carr Prize at the Interactive Innovation Awards on March 11, 2019 and will have an opportunity to give a short speech upon acceptance.
