This year at South By Southwest (SXSW) Latinos in the digital media space will have their very own lounge, party, and award ceremony highlighting their innovative work in social media and beyond. The events, wrapped into the name The Social Revolución, are being put together by Cultural Strategies, the communications firm in Austin, Texas.

The Revolucionario Awards, which will be awarded in three categories: The New Americano, The Mobilizer and The Innovator.
