SXSW panel voting is open & It’s time to vote!

Every year, panelists submit entries to SXSW hoping theirs will be featured for the big event. Before a panel is chosen there is a Proposal Selection Process. The breakdown for the selection process is as follows Public Votes – 30%, SXSW Advisory Board – 40%, and SXSW Staff – 30%.

THE COMMUNITY ACCOUNTS FOR 30% of the final selection process! That’s a good chunk. So, it’s up to you, COMMUNITY to vote for your favorite panel…and if that panel happens to be Kworq’sPersonalization and the Art of Empathy,” then that would be just alright with us!
