Hello 2017! The Interaction Awards are open for submission

Founded by the Interaction Design Association (IxDA), the Interaction Awards honor design quality and innovation, open conversations amongst the community and continuously advance the practice of Interaction Design.

We accept entries in the following six categories: Optimizing, Engaging, Empowering, Expressing,
Connecting, and Disrupting. All entries will be evaluated based on the following criteria: opportunity, audience, impact, craft and category appropriateness. All entries are judged in two rounds. The first is an anonymous peer-review by IxDA members and second, for shortlisted entries, by our 2017 Interaction Awards jury.

As in previous years, we actively encourage participation from all over the world and across all levels of experience. Entry fees have not changed and continue to be structured by professional or student status and geographic region. Read more about the Interaction Awards categories, rules, and prizes.

What’s New

A few updates from last years awards. We are happy to announce that we have a new awards co-chair, Molly W. Steenson, who will be steering the team together with Thomas Kueber. They both look forward to seeing your work and greeting you at the next Interaction Awards celebration on Wednesday evening, February 8, 2017, during Interaction Week in New York City.

We will also be introducing a new jury for this year. Who we’ve got for this year’s jury chair is still a secret – but will be revealed soon!

We have exciting plans in store for this year’s Awards, and we can’t wait to share them with you. In the meantime, please help us spread the word:
