Good news! The 2022 PanelPicker® entry period has been extended through Sunday, July 25 at 11:59pm PT. Take advantage of this weekend extension for last-minute tweaks to your session proposal for the 2022 SXSW event.

Global professionals at every level come together during the Conference to participate, learn, and network while exploring what’s next in the worlds of tech, entertainment, culture, and beyond. PanelPicker® is the official SXSW user-generated session proposal platform. The two-step online process allows the SXSW community to have a significant voice in what creative and thought-provoking programming is selected for SXSW and SXSW EDU.

“Community is such a big part of SXSW, which is why PanelPicker powers so much of the Conference programming each year. This interface enables us to connect with thousands of creative professionals, experienced experts and informed consumers from across the United States and around the world. Moreover, PanelPicker helps us identify the most innovative new ideas from this global community, thereby helping to keep SXSW exciting, timely and relevant.” – Hugh Forrest, SXSW Chief Programming Officer
