The 2015 Interaction Awards are now open until 31 August, 2014 for
submissions. In its fourth year, the Interaction Awards recognize and
celebrate examples of excellence in Interaction Design across domains,
channels, environments and cultures. We welcome entries for concept
and production projects from students and professionals from around
the world. We’re excited to continue inspiring the global Interaction
Design community to share, discuss and celebrate the state of
Interaction Design. Enter now! http://bit.ly/IxDAwards

We are honored to have Dr. Richard Buchanan, Professor of Design,
Management, and Information Systems at Weatherhead School of
Management, Case Western Reserve University as this year’s Interaction
Awards Jury Chair. Dr. Buchanan is joined by an international panel of
experts across design domains – http://awards.ixda.org/jury . The Jury
members for 2015 are:

Services User Experience (ISUX), Department of Social Networking

The jury and a large group of international practitioners will be
involved in the initial peer review process in September of 2014.
Shortlisted entries will emerge from this process and automatically
become part of the Interaction Design Yearbook, a program looking to
bring reflection and critique around the state of Interaction Design
around the world today and where the discipline is heading into the
future. The shortlist will also be the focus of the Interaction Awards
Jury, meeting in November 2014 at Copenhagen Institute of Interaction
Design (CIID) in Denmark – http://ciid.dk .

Finalists will be notified in December 2014 and winners officially
announced and celebrated at the Interaction15 conference –

2015. You can read more about the Interaction Awards rules, eligibility and process – http://awards.ixda.org/about .

The 2014 Interaction Awards (

projects selected from over 350 entries and from 27 countries. These
projects demonstrated exceptional interaction design ranging from
industrial control systems, to accessible health data to talking
toasters. What will we see this year?
