Interaction Awards
Jan 29, 2023
Thank you! Now our work begins.

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.

This week our Peer Review process begins. Our Community Review Panel includes 75 IxDA community members. Together this group represents 43 countries. It may be our most global Peer Review Panel yet. While some have been part of previous Peer Review Panels, more than 90% are offering their skills for the first time.

During Peer Review, each submission receives at least two independent reviews. It’s this process that makes the Interaction Awards distinct from other programs: the voice of the global practitioner community is at the foundation of curating the winners.

Our shortlist will be announced on 10 February. Watch this space for news!

Once we have our shortlist, entries move on to the second phase of judging. A diverse and accomplished international jury, led by this year’s chair Cynthia Savard Saucier, selects our Finalists and Winners, along with these special recognition awards — Best Student, Best Concept, Best in Show, and Future Voice. Our People’s Choice Award is selected through public voting from the 2023 Shortlist.

This year’s winners will be revealed on 6 May at an in-person ceremony in New York. The ceremony will also be streamed for our community to watch around the globe. 


The Interaction Awards are an initiative of the Interaction Design Association (IxDA), a global community of more than 120,000 individuals worldwide dedicated to the professional practice of Interaction Design. Find out how to join your local group and get involved at
