The shift from individual products and services towards connected ecosystems, the Internet of Everything, requires interdisciplinary concepts and a cross-sectoral approach.
In a connected world, meaningful user experiences act consistently across products, services and applications, dissolving traditional product categories.
Consequently, UX Design Awards eschew narrowly defined product classes. The competition is open for submissions in the following areas:
Launched or market ready products, services, environments
Entries for the “UX Design Award | Product” may include for instance: Electronic products, digital applications, apps, software-based solutions, services, physical and virtual spaces containing electronic functions or digital touchpoints. Entries must have either been launched on the market no longer than two calendar years prior to their submission date, or should be planned for a launch within the year of submission.
Product studies, product- and service prototypes, interaction concepts, research projects
Entries for the “UX Design Award | Concept” may include for instance: Technological product studies, product or service prototypes, pioneering interaction solutions, research projects or solutions not (yet) intended for a market entry. The development process must have begun no longer than two calendar years prior to the submission date.
