If my idea is selected, do I get free admission to SXSW?

Only SXSW speakers receive a free badge (see breakdown below). If you are both the organizer AND speaker, then yes. Unfortunately, organizers who are NOT speaking do NOT receive a free badge.

SXSW Conference speakers receive a complimentary Platinum badge which allows them access to all official SXSW Conference and Festival events.

SXSW EDU speakers receive a free SXSW EDU badge which allows access to all official SXSW EDU events.
