Apply to Become a WeDC Ambassador at SXSW

This year the WDCEP will again lead a delegation of Ambassadors to SXSW in Austin.

The WeDC Ambassadors play an important role at SXSW, engaging with leaders and influencers from around the world on behalf of our creative and tech community. Our WeDC Ambassadors contribute an element of authenticity to DC’s presence at SXSW helping to out-preform other, much larger activations. Please take a moment to nominate anyone you feel would make an excellent representative of our community at SXSW. Leaders in tech, culture, and business are all welcome.

Please submit your nomination below. You may nominate someone you know personally or simply someone from our community whom you admire.
