IxDA Board of D...
It's time to celebrate our achievements as interaction designers. It's
time for us demonstrate that the work we do is impactful, it's
everywhere and it is absolutely necessary in designing the best
products, systems and services. IxDA is proud to have added the
Interaction Awards as a new platform for us to celebrate our discipline,
and reflect amazing work back out beyond our communities to the broader
design and business communities.
I encourage you to take pride in the work you've done and submit it
for consideration to the IxDA Interaction Awards. Encourage your
colleagues. Encourage your design communities. Here's your chance to
shine a global light on the good work happening in your area of the
world. We're extending the deadline until September 22, so you have few
weeks to submit your work! Please enter the awards by Thursday,
began in 2003 as a way to bring together a community of like-minded
professionals who were committed to advancing the discipline of
interaction design together. It began simply, as an email
discussion group; it has since grown to much more. We have kept the
mission of advancing the discipline core to our existence. We realized
that the way we do this best is to continue to let the community define
and guide, and the organization will provide the platforms on which the
community can gather to do just that.
We have progressed and added new platforms over the years out of
community need and desire, moving from the mailing list, to local
groups, to the conference. The Interaction Awards has the greatest
potential for widespread global impact on how interaction design is
perceived by the broader business and design community. The belief in
this impact is deep, demonstrated by the involvement of the
international jury led by Robert Fabricant and the sponsorship we've received.
This isn't just about putting an award on the company shelf; it's
about demonstrating beyond our walls for the betterment of the
discipline and the expansion of the work available to us as a
