- presented by Kleine Zeitung & ORF Steiermark
This Elevate Award has a local focus on the Austrian state of Styria (Steiermark). While sharing the same values and criteria as the International Elevate Award, this award has a clear local/regional focus.

There will be an online voting process, held at the website of Kleine Zeitung and HERE on the Elevate Website from October 1st until October 15th.
This award initiative has the support of the Franz Voves, the governor of the state of Styria, as well as the culture department of the city of Graz.
