How does it feel to win?
How does it feel to win an Interaction Award? What changes after you leave the stage and fly away from wherever the Interaction conference has taken you that year? What is it worth to make all the effort to submit your shining project to our design program?
Who could be better to ask this question (and a couple more) than the people we actually had up there, in the Awards limelight of recent years.
The responses we received were incredibly gratifying so we’ve compiled a few into a short video to share with you:
In our fifth year now IxDA has grown a body of exemplary work recognized with Interaction Awards. As practitioners in this wide field we are witnessing so much change in these exciting times that it becomes ever more important to take a couple of deep breaths, and a little time to reflect on why we do what we do.
That has always been – and will be again – the goal of the Interaction Awards. We aim to curate what we believe are the best, most inspiring and effective approaches to “improve the human condition through interaction design” as is boldly stated on IxDA.org.
We hope this video plays its little part in this undertaking. Take a look and see for yourself the value and impact of interaction design, how some of our past winners are doing today and, finally, how it feels to win an Interaction Award.
And maybe take a moment to picture yourself in that position. Submissions are open until September 13, 2015. Go ahead and show us what you’ve got!
