How does SXSW Sydney choose sessions?

Session Select 2023 submissions have closed, and soon they will be made available on our website for public voting. This plays an important role in the SXSW Sydney programming, ensuring that content is timely and relevant to its audiences.

Voting results, alongside advice from our independent industry advisory boards, will assist the SXSW Sydney team in determining our final content line up.

If your submission is successful, you will be the primary point of contact and are responsible for all session information related to the proposal. The SXSW Sydney team will assist you in the delivery of your proposal, but you will lead it.
