Longtime New York Times writer David Carr spoke on numerous panels at SXSW throughout his career. After his passing in 2015, we launched the David Carr Prize to spotlight the intersection of technology and journalism, as well as to honor the influence he had on the community of creatives that come to Austin each March.
All emerging (and established) writers, bloggers, and journalists are invited each year to honor David Carr’s interest in the convergence of new media, technology, and culture by entering an essay or short story of 2,000 words or less in this competition. Original and unpublished entries will be reviewed by our David Carr Prize Advisory Board.Enter your essay following the 2018 prompt and application before the final deadline on Friday, October 13, 2017.
In the future, how do you understand what is real and what is fake?
