Here are the winners of the 2017 Interaction Awards by IxDA

The Interaction Awards are the biggest UX awards in the world — recognizing and celebrating examples of excellence in Interaction Design across domains, channels, environments and cultures.

A few months ago we shared the shortlist. Now it’s time to look at the winners. The Interaction Awards are broken down in 6 categories:

  • Connecting: Facilitating communication between people and communities

Once the work is submitted, it goes through a rigorous process of evaluation and reviews. An international body of peer reviewers from the IxDA community evaluates all submissions. Each entry receives at least three individual reviews culminating in a shortlist of approximately 12 top-rated entries per category.

Shortlisted entries are then evaluated at an on-site jury event. The jury selects approximately 30 finalist winners (up to 5 per category), and awards some additional recognitions (Best Student, People’s Choice and Best in Show).

Last week, at the end of the last day of the Interaction 17 conference, the winners were finally announced at a big gala-type event in NYC.

“The entries this year were diverse and covered a much broader range of topics. The 2017 shortlist stood out to us as the projects mostly characterized as heavyweight problem-solving. From crime-fighting to workers rights, immigration issues, or even to help people with disabilities create music — there were a lot of fantastic design approaches to important topics.” — IxDA
