Over the last five years, Crowdsourcing Week has held conferences with some of the world’s largest tech pioneers and entrepreneurs. We’ve just finished our fifth global conference, which was last month in Washington DC. But, for our latest event, we’ve been working on being more BOLD than ever before. And by bold, we mean BOLD.

We’ve now partnered with major innovation platform H-Farm, alongside a panel of international judges, to create something YOU can be a part of. From our Crowdsourcing core to the Space Frontier, we’re seeking fellow world changers to join us in our latest venture and are rewarding those who do.

We’ve combined all of the best pieces from our previous events and experience into the BOLD Awards, and we hope you love what we’ve worked so hard on.

We've Been Building Something BOLD

The BOLD Awards will showcase the best entries in the world from businesses and individuals in ten award categories, plus two further special awards for The Boldest Young Achiever Under 25 and The Boldest Innovator.

Anyone can submit an entry, be it an individual, small business, startup, large organization or government agency depending on the category. Entries must be real projects that are 6 months or older, can show real proof and have a digital presence. We are unable to accept concepts. You can even start your entry process right now.

After initial vetting by the Crowdsourcing Week team, entries will be posted online for the global CSW community to vote for their favourites from 8 February 2019.  From the public vote shortlists a panel of judges drawn from four continents will then decide a winner in each category.

Category winners will be invited to attend the award giving ceremony in Venice, Italy, on 5 April 2019. This will be organised and hosted by our event partner H-Farm, an innovation platform that supports the creation of new business models and the digital transformation and education of young people and Italian companies.

Valuable category sponsorship is available for companies operating in the crowdsourcing space to help them achieve their own 2019 aims. And this includes being in Venice as well.

So, we ask you, do you have what it takes to be BOLD?
