Does it cost anything to attend IWDK?
Most of the events during IWDK are free of charge. However, some events will have an attending fee. If so, it will appear on the event page.
Where are the events located?
IWDK is a crowdsourced festival, which means everyone can contribute with an event. The charm about this is that there are events in and around Aarhus. The specific address for each event will appear on the event page.
Alongside the many crowdsourced events, there is an official program that consists of the events IWDK organizes. These events will appear in the event schedule alongside all the other events and will take place at Aarhus City Hall and Dokk1.
How do I see the events I am participating in?
You login to your account or create an account with use of your name and email address, then, you’ll be able to see a 'My festival' button. In the 'My festival' view you can see your list of events and who else is participating in the specific event.
Who can submit an event?
Anyone — whether an established company, startup, organization, agency, public institution, or individual — can submit an event. However, the event must remain within the official framework of the five tracks: Technology, Marketing, Business, Creative and Citizenship. For more information on how to plan a successful event, see tips here.
When can I submit my event(s) to the website?
You can submit an event on our website already now. There is no deadline for submitting your event but the sooner you do, the more publicity. Deadline for events in the printed programme is February 6, 2017.

There are no fees associated with becoming an event organizer other than the costs related to planning and hosting your event. In order to meet any economic challenges, we suggest that you find someone to collaborate with. In that way you can split the expenses for speakers, location, catering, etc.
Can I get financial support for my event?
IWDK cannot give financial support to any events. We offer an umbrella branding solutions, which will help you promote your event. In 2015 and 2016 we experienced a considerable media attention plus activity on social media and we expect even more before, during and after this year’s festival. By planning an event during IWDK we hope for you to reach a new and broader audience.
How do I promote my event?
All registered events in the program will appear on our website and other marketing activities promoting the program. But there are lots of things you can do to promote your event as well - the more we all talk about IWDK, the more people will participate! We encourage you to use our hashtag #IWDK17 to participate in the conversation already going on both on Twitter and Instagram.
Furthermore, you are able to use our official logos in your marketing and public relations efforts. Find them here or contact us on email@example.com.
