The 24th annual SXSW Innovation Awards Ceremony presented by Pittsburgh Regional Health Initiative is where it all comes together.

This long-standing tradition celebrates some of the most exciting innovations at SXSW. The ceremony and receptions provide for a full evening of fun, food, drinks and networking.

Explore the work of the top finalist projects in each of the 14 categories “hands-on” at the Innovation Awards Showcase on Saturday, March 11 at Griffin Hall at the JW Marriott.

Then join us as we announce the winners in each category at the Innovation Awards Ceremony hosted by Austin-based comedian Carlton Wilcoxson on Monday, March 13 at the Austin Convention Center.

History-making Mentor Method Founder Janice Omadeke and The Cru’s Tiffany Dufu will also be part of the March 13 event and will unveil winners in several of the Innovation Awards categories.

This ceremony will also recognize the five SXSW Community Service Award winners for 2023, as well as this year’s inductee for the SXSW Hall of Fame (legendary Texas journalist Dan Rather).
