Ignite Phoenix Wants Your Ideas

And you have 12 hours left to submit them.

Ignite Phoenix is all about locals who are (often oddly) obsessed with something that they want to share. Our own Jonathan McNamara presented on building miniature giant robots a few years ago. Really.

You'll be asked to share your idea/passion with a crowd for no longer than five minutes. You can use a slideshow, a few props, whatever and after the conference, your idea will be shared on the ignite website for all to see.

This is the eighth Ignite Phoenix. Check out rules and guidelines, examples of current submissions, past presentations, and submit your own on the Ignite Phoenix website. They promise it's 100 percent free and 99 percent painless.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
