#notatSXSW & Philly Tech Week 2014 presented by AT&T Preview Party

Womp Womp. Not going to SXSW this year? Don't fret, you live in Philly, and there's a thriving interactive & design community right here!

Join us to rally around our hometown spirit at our annual #notatSXSW party! This year we're making this more than just a meetup and adding a design gallery & competition. We'll also be giving a sneak peak at Philly Tech Week 2014, happening this year April 4-12, 2014.

Designers! You're invited to bring a recent piece of superb design to show off in a casual gallery format (Find out how to enter below). Party people will vote on their favorite! Prizes TBA but will include a critique from an industry expert. The winner will be entered into a final design showdown against designers from Brooklyn and Baltimore.

Let's hang out, talk tech & design, and dig into the great and exciting things happening in the city we love. Then it'll be fine that none of us are at SXSW...we didn't want to go anyway!

*How to enter: Enter the competition by emailing a copy of your design, your name and your Twitter handle to corinne[AT]technical[DOT]ly with the subject line: "#notatSXSW Design Competition: Your name"
