Cast Your Vote and Tune In to See Who Wins

Our vision for the 10th annual Interaction Awards is all about YOU – the 100 thousand plus members of the IxDA community. Leading up to Interaction Week and the Awards Ceremony, we strove to make it easier for you to participate in the Awards with lowered fees, a new “indie/nonprofit” category, and delivering the content of the Awards site in multiple languages. Ultimately, we want to increase the exposure you’ll receive for winning, and to make it clear to you, our community, and the world beyond, what the award means; that your work is best-in-class. We can all point to the winning work and say THAT is excellent Interaction Design!

We invite you to celebrate the incredible milestones set this year at our live ceremony on Feb 5th at 7 pm Eastern via the free live-stream on our YouTube channel:

  • 351 submissions – The highest submission count in the history of the awards!
  • Entrants from 39 countries – The most nationalities ever represented!
  • More entries from outside North America for the first time ever!
  • 13 countries represented by the finalists and winners who will be revealed in the Awards ceremony!

A historic celebration for our community!

The products, services, and systems our community designs touch far more people and play a more integrated role in most people’s daily life than most movies so this Awards night is our Golden Globes. We won’t be able to clink champagne glasses together in person, but the awards spectacular will be a celebration on a truly global scale and YOU are invited!

You won’t want to miss performances by Box of Beats, and Figma the Musical as well a who-who list of presenters from our community. This year’s jury chair May-Li Khoe, and the entire 2021 Jury will be joining live (another first!) to present awards with community  luminaries such as 2016 Jury Chair, Kim Goodwin, IxDA Board President Kevin Budelmann, Awards creators Jenn Bove and Raphael Grignani, and our master of ceremonies; 4-time author and co-chair of the very first Interaction Conference, Dan Saffer!

After the final keynote on Friday, the Award Ceremony will begin at 7 pm EST and you can invite your colleagues and friends to watch too because  – for the first time ever –  will be broadcast as a free, livestream to the world via YouTube thanks to our exclusive sponsor, Amazon Design.

Cast your vote for the People’s Choice Award.

Even if you’re new to the community or just hearing about the Interaction Awards for the very first time, there’s still an important role for you to play in this year’s awards program because one of the awards is chosen entirely by YOU, the IxDA community. Review the shortlisted projects and cast your vote for the People’s Choice award by midnight Feb 4th!

Who will win?

Tune in on Friday to watch the exciting LIVE Awards ceremony as we celebrate the finalists and reveal the winners!
