2013 SXSW Interactive Awards Winners Announced!

Written by Sam Carolan | March 12, 2013

Big thanks are due to everyone who helped us pull off the 16th Annual SXSW Interactive Awards Ceremony presented by Bloomfire, but especially to to our talent for the evening: The Austin Steamers, who played a great set during the Pre-Party and our ceremony emcee, the wonderful Aisha Tyler. This amazing event was a huge success in large part because of their contributions.

We'd also like to extend a thanks to SXSW Accelerator emcee Brad King, who helped us honor the many winners of other SXSW competitions at the ceremony, and Baratunde Thurston, who helped us induct danah boyd as the second member of the SXSW Interactive Hall of Fame.

Credit is also due to the amazing group of staff and volunteers who helped put on a successful show.
