Winners of the Cycling Visionaries Awards are entitled to free participation in the foremost global venue on urban cycling, the Velo-city conference, to be held in Vienna, Austria, in June 2013.
During the Velo-city conference, there will be ample opportunities for prize winners to meet leading voices of the global cycling community. Cycling Visionaries will learn more about global cycling cultures, develop their own networks and expand the scope of their work. Moreover, Cycling Visionaries will participate in the Velo-city 2013 conference programme and present their ideas in speed-datings, lectures, round tables or film screenings. Additionally, their work will be published in the Velo-city Vienna conference publication.
Currently, there is funding for up to 20 award beneficiaries. We are working hard to increase this number with the help of sponsors.
In March 2013, a public voting will choose the Cycling Visionaries. The Cycling Visionaries Awards reach out to the global cycling community to help identify the most innovative and potentially useful projects in cycling. More information coming soon.
