The annual Interaction Awards celebrate global excellence in the discipline of Interaction Design. Now in it’s fifth year,  this new cycle will be celebrated at Interaction16 conference in Helsinki, Finland in March 2016.


We’ll award up to 35 prizes for outstanding works that embody and improve meaningful relationships between people and the products and services they use, exemplifying outstanding interaction design.

Entry to the awards competition is open to all companies, individuals and students. The 2016 Awards cycle will open on July 1 2015. To reflect the diversity of the global IxDA community and support fair and inclusive participation, entry fees are based on geography and professional status.

A shortlist will be announced in October 2015, and will be showcased online. We’ll invite the community to evaluate the shortlist and their favorites for the People's Choice award.

Each shortlisted entry will have the opportunity to submit additional materials, including a physical or digital prototype, for evaluation by the jury in November 2015.

We’ll announce the final award winners in each category in March 2016, at the IxDA’s Interaction16 conference in Helsinki, Finland.
