Aisha Tyler hosting the 2013 South by Southwest Interactive awards last night.

South by Southwest Interactive powered down last night, although not before a blowout closing party at Stubb’s Bar-B-Q and the SXSW Interactive Awards.

The 16th Annual Interactive Awards held at the Hilton Austin Downtown honored winners across 15 different categories. Emcee Aisha Tyler kept the jokes coming at a rapid clip, imploring honorees (with mixed success) to keep their acceptance speeches Tweet length. And bluegrass performersThe Austin Steamers kicked the festivities off with a Texas twang.

KUT News spoke with three award finalists: the folks behind Motion Graphics nominee Assassin's Creed III - Bunker Hill Interactive Trailer; Student nominee Combiform; and Film/TV nominee Smithsonian Channel for iPad. You can listen to their remarks in the player above.  

You can find a full list of award winners here. Below, check out a slideshow powered by the KUT News Flickr page
