In the past few weeks, the Oberösterreichische Nachrichten editorial team has received more than 60 applications for the country’s largest digital prize: from start-ups, established entrepreneurs to innovative ideas from clubs, groups and institutions.
At the Digitalos 2023 and the big gala in the Linzer Tabakfabrik on November 16th (7:30 p.m.), Upper Austria’s digital pioneers will be brought in front of the curtain and on stage. The quality of the submissions was very high and did not make it easy for the digital experts from the JKU and the jury chairman Sepp Hochreiter, a pioneer in artificial intelligence, to make a pre-selection. On this page you can see the 20 candidates who made it to the final selection – in four different categories. Categories five and six, those for the Special Digitalia Prize and for Digital Pioneering Achievement (Lifetime Achievement), are awarded directly by the jury.
Now the favorites have to pass a second test. Because now it’s the jury’s turn: OÖN and its partners Sparkasse Oberösterreich, Tabakfabrik Linz, KPMG, City of Linz, Wiener Städtische and State of Upper Austria will choose the winners of the fifth edition of the digital. The winners will be chosen from the five nominees in the main categories of digital start-ups, digital transformation and digital project. The winner in the Digital Personality category was determined by audience voting on nachrichten.at. All winners will be honored at the Digitalos Gala on November 16th in the Linzer Tabakfabrik.
