I'm very excited to announce the opening for entries to the 2013 Interaction Awards. This is the second year in which the Awards have been staged, following on from a highly successful inaugural year which saw over 300 entries from 30+ countries.
The ADAA is an international competition for students, recent graduates and faculty - celebrating and recognizing achievement in design across 13 student and 3 faculty categories - including 6 student categories and 1 faculty category for interactive media.
The Interaction Awards celebrate the work done by interaction designers every day, to create meaningful relationships between people and the products and services that they use.

The winner was Lisa Strausfeld (of Pentagram) and the 2 runner ups were Local Projects and Potion.
Looking at these winners, I felt uncomfortable. I have as wide and encompassing a definition of IxD as anyone and yes these candidates have done tremendous work, but there is something missing, or are we missing something here in this organization/community?
