The UX Design Awards are a global competition with a unique focus on user experience, a key added value for connected life and work.

User experience has become a flagship discipline in design – one that is shaping products and services of today and in the future.


With the awards, International Design Center Berlin (IDZ) honors innovative solutions that increase the added value of new applications, technologies and services through positive experiences – and thus contribute to shaping a future-oriented world.

The competition is held annually and presented at the global technology show IFA in Berlin, Germany (key figures in 2018: more than 245,000 visitors, 6,000 journalists, 1,800 exhibitors).

Winners distinguished by the competition jury are announced at a festive awards ceremony during the IFA trade show, ensuring broad publicity.


„We consider the UX Design Awards to be the champions league of UX design – and that’s where we want to be.“ – Dr. Alexander Wiethoff, UX Design Director, Imago Design (Germany)
