IFF Tool Showcase: the projects

During the Internet Freedom Festival, which will take place in Valencia, Spain, from the 1st to the 6th March 2016, will host a tool showcase and award ceremony on Thursday 3rd March, starting from 7 pm.

During the showcase, 15 tools will be introduced with a short presentation to the entire room and then be assigned to their own tables for a continuing discussion with the audience, who will then vote their favourite projects for three different categories – “You did whaaaat?”, “Wish I’d thought of that!”, and “You get a biscuit”.

Here is the complete list of the presented projects, with a link to the posts we have dedicated to each of them:
