Submit a talk

Do you have a great idea or a fascinating story you want to share with your city? This is a unique chance to share something important, funny, or wonderful with Seattle and the world.

  • Submissions Due: September 14
  • Ignite Seattle: October 26

Most submissions are talks, but your submission can be anything, as long as it fits the Ignite format: 5 minutes, 20 slides, and 15 seconds per slide.

It’s ok if you haven’t done this before — accepted speakers are invited to coaching sessions led by professional speaker coach Scott Berkun.

If you’ve never been to one of our events, watch at least one Ignite talk so you get a feel for the format or watch our one-minute explainer video.

DEFINITELY READ our insider advice on getting your talk accepted. We receive ~70 submissions for 12 spots, but only a fraction follow this advice.
