The annual SXSW Hackathon hosts hackers, creators, makers, and coders who will collaborate and compete using AI, XR, voice activation, blockchain, analytics, video, and other burgeoning technologies to create new solutions.

The Hackathon challenges hackers to create projects — with guidance from our group of mentors — under one of these categories, and encourage overlapping projects and cross-pollination, too! After the 24 hour session, a panel of industry judges will choose the winning teams, who will be awarded cash and sponsor prizes and the opportunity to participate in the Hackathon Incubator.
