Speakers’ Night 2023

The annual Speakers‘ Night is a well-loved public speaking contest for scholarship holders at the European Forum Alpbach. For more than 15 years, Club Alpbach Styria has organized the event as a platform for bright young minds to showcase their oratorical skills on the big stage. This provides the ideal opportunity for YOU to present your ideas and perspectives to a larger audience while receiving valuable feedback from a distinguished panel of jurors. Also, great prizes await the winners!

The motto of this year’s edition is:

Virtue is Bold

The deadline
for application is 23:59 (11:59 p.m.) on Thursday, 24 August.

Applicants selected for participation will be notified shortly thereafter and will have the opportunity to attend a preparatory workshop in Alpbach on Saturday, 26 August from 10:00 to 12:30. Finally, the three-minute speeches are delivered live on stage at the 17th annual Speakers‘ Night on 28 August, 20:15 (8:15 p.m.), where a panel of judges will assess the contestants‘ performances and select a winner. In addition, anyone who prefers to attend the event as a spectator gets to cast a vote for their favorite speech in the Alpbach Audience Award.
