SXSW presents inaugural Grulke prizes

By | Published on Wednesday 20 March 2013


Organisers of South By Southwest have announced the winners of the inaugural Grulke Prize, three new awards to be presented each year at the Austin showcase festival and uber-convention in honour of Brent Grulke, the event’s longtime Creative Director who died last August.

Two of the new prizes go to Developing Acts, new artists, one American and one non-US, who “are breaking new ground with their creativity and show the most promise in achieving their career goals”. And the first winners of those prizes are Haim and Chvrches.

A third prize, called the Career Act award, goes to “an established artist who appeared at SXSW 2013 to reinvent themselves or launch an important new project”. And the first of those goes to The Flaming Lips, for their various activities at this year’s festival.
