Calling all changemakers, cyborgs, and inventors. The Border Labs Award is around the corner: nominate your tech hero who deserves a place in the limelight. Border Labs Award is a prize to reward pioneers who created meaningful technologies for society as well as critical technologists, artists, and thinkers who’ve made us reflect on our tech-infused society. We accept nominations until the 11th of May. Check out last year’s finalists here.
