The PanelPicker entry process for the 2016 SXSW Interactive Conference is now OPEN FOR BUSINESS and closes on Friday, July 24 at 11:59 pm CDT.

And what exactly is PanelPicker?

PanelPicker is the two-step process that gives the SXSW community a voice in what conference sessions they would like to see at the March event. After the entry process closes, the public has the opportunity to weigh in on the decision by voting on the submissions and leaving constructive feedback.

As summer begins to heat up – now is the time to start brainstorming on what you would like to present during SXSW in March of next year! Once you have submitted your Panel Picker idea – please email us your panel URL to so that we can track it and help you advocate for votes for your panel.
