For our fifth category of this year’s IxDA Awards, we are looking on CONNECTING.
“How do the projects allow people to connect?” - this is the main question we ask for submitted projects in this category.

Our next category dives into the question how interaction design can engage its users in new and exciting ways.

Today we would like to introduce you to our second category of the IxDA Awards called "Optimizing". Which specific challenges can be solved by optimized interactions in a country like India? And from a broader perspective - how can efficient daily activities change the life of everyone?

During the following weeks we would like to introduce you to the six categories of the Interaction Awards. Our 2016 jury members took a minute aside on last year's jury weekend to elaborate what they would love to see in future entries.
We are delighted to announce Ravi Naidoo as the chair of 2017 Interaction Awards Jury!
