The 2015 Interaction Awards are now open for submission

The 2015 Interaction Awards are now open until 31 August, 2014 for submissions. In its fourth year, the Interaction Awards recognize and celebrate examples of excellence in Interaction Design across domains, channels, environments and cultures. We welcome entries for concept and production projects from students and professionals from around the world. We’re excited to continue inspiring the global Interaction Design community to share, discuss and celebrate the state of Interaction Design. Enter now!

We are honored to have Dr. Richard Buchanan, Professor of Design, Management, and Information Systems at Weatherhead School of Management, Case Western Reserve University as this year’s Interaction Awards Jury Chair. Dr. Buchanan is joined by an international panel of experts across design domains. The Jury members for 2015 are:

Amy Ip (Shenzhen, China)
Design Director / Design Expert at Internet Social User Experience (ISUX), Department of Social Networking Group, Tencent Company

Dr. Jeremy Yuille (Melbourne, Australia)
Senior Lecturer with the Communication Design program and Design Futures Lab, RMIT University

Dina Mehta (Mumbai, India)
Co-Founder, Convo Research and Strategy

Lavrans Løvlie (Oslo, Norway)
Founding partner of live|work

Kim Lenox (San Francisco, USA)
UX Consultant, Board of Directors, IxDA

The jury and a large group of international practitioners will be involved in the initial peer review process in September of 2014. Shortlisted entries will emerge from this process and automatically become part of the Interaction Design Yearbook, a program looking to bring reflection and critique around the state of Interaction Design around the world today and where the discipline is heading into the future. The shortlist will also be the focus of the Interaction Awards Jury, meeting in November 2014 at Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design (CIID) in Denmark.

Finalists will be notified in December 2014 and winners officially announced and celebrated at the Interaction15 conference in San Francisco on February ­9-11, 2015. Read more information about the Interaction Awards rules, eligibility and process.

The 2014 Interaction Awards recognised 27 projects selected from over 350 entries and from 27 countries. These projects demonstrated exceptional interaction design ranging from industrial control systems, to accessible health data to talking toasters. Addicted Products, from Simone Rebaudengo was awarded Best in Show, SAP Scouting, SAP was awarded People’s Choice, and Avena+ Test Bed – Agricultural Printing and Altered Landscapes, by Benedikt Groß took home both Best Student and Best Concept.
