Got a great idea for the next big thing?
Then South by Southwest’s PanelPicker might be a great place to vet your idea. Every year, SXSW puts together a portion of its popular annual conference from its PanelPicker process. That involves people submitting ideas, other voting on their favorite ideas and the SXSW folks selecting the programs for 2014.
“SXSW Interactive is positioned at the forefront of creativity, so the more inventive the idea, the better.”
The PanelPicker is for programming for the Music, Film, Interactive and EDU conference activities that takes place March 3 – 16th next year in Austin.
The PanelPicker system will be accepting proposals today through July 26th. Then community voting begins on August 19th and continues through Sept. 6th.
The first round of confirmed programming for all three conferences will be released on Monday, October 14, 2013.
“The PanelPicker interface is a natural extension of the creative intermingling that takes place during the festival itself,” Roland Swenson, SXSW’s Managing Director, said in a news statement “We are excited that we can provide a forum for new ideas to debut and flourish year-round.”
