John Lennon: the Bermuda Tapes app has been shortlisted for an SXSW Interactive Award.

The app was launched late last year and chronicles John Lennon’s trip to Bermuda, where he was inspired to write the Double Fantasy album.

It has been nominated in the Music category which is “projects related to musicians, bands, and the music industry, as well as online radio and other developments that offer streaming audio content”.

The other nominees are: ACO VIRTUAL, Just A Reflektor, Marmoset and Rocking the Daisies. 

In addition, people can vote for the app in the People’s Choice category. 

The winning entry in each of the 15 categories will be revealed at the 17th Annual SXSW Interactive Awards Ceremony presented by INNOCEAN on Tuesday, March 11. 

The Interactive Awards highlight the coolest projects from the Interactive community, including mobile and tablet apps, platforms, games, kiosks/installations, digital campaigns, websites and more. 

The company said: “We are looking for projects created by the Interactive community that push the boundaries of what’s possible in digital content and inspire the next wave of creativity.”
