#GetTheMayor won the „People`s Choice Award” at the SXSW Festival


#GetTheMayor is not only unique in Germany showing the current nomination at the South by Southwest Festival in Texas. We were nominated in two categories: “Smart Cities” and “Innovation in Connecting People”. Unfortunately we didn’t win the 1st prize in these categories, but: The Innovation Award in the category “People’s Choice” went to Heidelberg! Among all 65 nominees one could vote online the crowds favorite and #GetTheMayor made it. Yeah! This shows that www.getthemayor.com is the right type for citizens` involvement, participation and transparency.

We are excited about the many projects and requests that will be suggested next!
