The Say Media SXSWi party was a huge hit in Austin this year, and we have the photos to prove it. There were over one hundred submissions to our party photo contest with candid shots that captured the bands, new friends and some amazing moments from the fun and music-packed evening.
Choosing the best photo was brutal – there were so many great shots. But after intense deliberation our prestigious panel of Say Media judges arrived at a winner and some honorable mentions. Below are the pictures that stood out in several categories - plus the overall best shot. The lucky winner takes home the grand prize: a Platinum Badge to SXSW for 2014!
