🚨 Calling all Designers ⁠— help us scout for the world’s best projects

Dear global IxDA community,

Peer review is the most important process in the annual IxDAwards because it’s designers like you that determines who make the shortlist every year. We’re looking for a small band of experienced designers from around the world to review the hundreds of submissions with us and select the official shortlist beginning on October 1, 2019. This process is open to all IxDA members.

Even if you or your company has submitted an entry, you’re still qualified to judge other entries. We’ll just request that you don’t review your own.

What do Peer Reviewers do?

Peer Reviewers participate in a private online review process to select the 2020 shortlist for approximately a 8–10-hour commitment over a week’s time. The process will begin around October 8th — October 18, 2019.

Afterwards, shortlisted entries are then evaluated by a diverse and accomplished international jury who will select Finalists and Winners. This process is what makes the Interaction Awards distinct from other awards programs: the voice of the global practitioner community is at the foundation of curating the winners.

Your commitment and perks as a Peer Reviewer:

  • Review at least 10 submissions that are submitted for the awards this year
  • Free submission for a project for next year’s Interaction Awards
  • Access to the IxDAwards meet-and-greet networking event at Interaction20 (Ticket not required)
  • Sneak peak into global design trends around the world
