SXSW is excited to announce the 50+ finalists for the 2023 SXSW Innovation Awards, an amazing collection of forward-focused digital projects from across the United States and around the world. These 50+ finalists are distributed amongst 14 different categories that range from "Artificial Intelligence" to "Health and MedTech" to "Sustainability." Finalists were chosen by a jury of industry judges from the hundreds of entries received by SXSW in the fall of 2022.

Category winners, plus additional honors will be announced at the 24th annual SXSW Innovation Awards Ceremony on the evening of Monday, March 13.

"The SXSW Innovation Awards highlight the creativity, originality and passion of the global community which gathers every March in Austin," said Hugh Forrest, Co-President and Chief Programming Officer. “The finalists in the 14 categories that make up this program point to a world where technology is used in a more thoughtful way, as well as where places of work foster more positive outcomes for all involved."

The event will be hosted by stand-up comedian, actor, and Austin resident Carlton Wilcoxson. Since he started comedy in 2016, he has regularly opened for headliners and hosts multiple popular shows of his own; such as the long-running weekly show Buzzkill at the Buzz Mill and the consistently sold-out monthly show Stoned vs. Drunk vs. Sober. Along with Wilcoxson, history-making Mentor Method Founder Janice Omadeke and The Cru’s Tiffany Dufu will be presenting several of the Innovation Awards categories for the evening.

In advance of the Awards Ceremony, these 50+ digital projects will be available for SXSW attendees to interact with at the Innovation Awards Finalist Showcase on Saturday, March 11, from 12pm-5pm in Griffin Hall at the JW Marriott Downtown Austin. The Finalist Showcase offers SXSW registrants a first look at the most exciting tech developments, including achievements in AI and machine learning, health technology, robotics and hardware, wearable tech, and virtual and augmented reality, plus a chance to place their votes for the People’s Choice Award.

Also, stay tuned for the 2023 SXSW Hall of Fame inductee and the Community Service Awards recipients, both of which will be honored during the Innovation Awards Ceremony on the evening of Monday, March 13.
