Interaction Awards
While our Community Peer Review panel is busy completing their work to select this year's shortlist, we thought we'd introduce you to the members of our international jury who will select this year's finalists and winners. Meet Carine Lallemand from Eindhoven, Netherlands.
Interaction Awards
You’ve submitted entries from more than 20 countries. We wish you all good luck!

The top three categories for this year's submissions are Empowering, Engaging, and Disrupting. Entries represent the cross-section of our industry: 26% from Agency/In-house businesses, 16% from Enterprise, 9% from Indie/Non-profit organizations, and 49% from students.

Did you miss getting in under the wire yesterday as our Late Entry deadline closed? Well, we have some good news. There is one final sprint to the finish — we’ve extended our deadline through 27 January 2023. So you have just two more weeks to complete your submission.

The entry platform will close and go offline for sure on Friday, 27 January at 11:59 p.m. in San Francisco. You will need to fully complete your submission before we turn off the lights. We understand that these few days can make a world of difference... Go for it, get it done!

Everyone loves a deadline! Today is the late entry deadline for this year’s Interaction Awards, and we know with our global reach it can be hard to figure out what that means for you in your local time.

We’ve created a cheat sheet to make sure you don’t miss the cutoff. And if your time zone is not listed, you can use our handy link to find exactly what Pacific time it is right now based on your local time zone.

Our entry deadline is fast approaching and preparing your Awards submission can be an anxiety-inducing experience. Have I got the right information? Did I pick the right photos? Is my story clear?  To make your job easier, we’ve put together insights from our past Interaction Awards jurors – how they’ve looked at submissions and what made a project stand out from the rest. 

Jury members want to understand the main points of your project and why it’s worthy of an award. Good storytelling is key. Your submission should be well-written and engaging, with a strong narrative that helps bring your work to life.

Community Peer Review is at the core of the Interaction Awards selection process. It is the members of the IxDA community like you that determine who makes our shortlist each year. 

This year we opened our Call for Peer Reviewers at the beginning of December and the community answered the call in record numbers. We received 300+ applications from 63 countries.
