The Interaction Awards team is busy preparing for our second annual Awards, aiming for a July 17, 2012 call for submissions. So, if you, or people you know, are interested in submitting this year, here’s your cue to start thinking about some of this year's examples of excellent interaction design. For inspiration, check out last year's winning projects, and our video profiles from last year's awards.
We’ve got a running start with a great group of jurors, volunteer chairs, leads and supporters who will officially be announced on Tuesday, July 17. In addition to awards in our six categories -- optimizing, engaging, empowering, expressing, connecting, and disrupting, this year we will introduce a new special recognition award. More details to come when we launch the new version of awards.ixda.org, announcing all you'll need to know to submit!
If you’re interested in supporting the awards here are a few ways you can help:
Call for global volunteers: Moka Pantages and Virginia Cagwin, our volunteer marketing communications leads, are busy building a global network of volunteers to help with regional media outreach and marketing. If you’re interested, please contact me and I’ll put you in touch with them.
Call for editorial pieces: We’ve got a strong media partnership program this year, as well as high hopes for the Awards blog and we invite you to contribute. If you’re interested in writing about topics in interaction design, write a short paragraph about what you’d like to write and we’ll happily pitch it to our media partners and/or our blog content editors.
Help us us make this year's Interaction Awards even better than last year. Enter your work and help us spread the word! Again, we’re opening up for submissions July 17 and closing Monday, September 24. The summer will fly by, so start thinking about those submissions now.
