Interaction Awards 2022 (Online)

January 15, 2022

Interaction Awards 22

Interaction Awards 2022 (IxD Awards 2022), now in its eleventh year, recognize and celebrate excellence in Interaction Design across domains, channels, environments, and cultures.

Founded by the Interaction Design Association (IxDA) in 2010 and first presented in 2012, the annual Interaction Awards celebrate design thought leadership and innovation around the globe. Since its launch in 2003, IxDA has grown into a global network of more than 100,000 individuals and over 200 local groups, focusing on interaction design issues for the practitioner, no matter their level of experience.

Design is everywhere. From architecture to fashion, down to the simplest everyday objects like a hairbrush, virtually everything has been designed for human use. Interaction Design is specifically about people — how people interact with each other, and with the world around them. The Interaction Awards honor best-in-class work, created by interaction designers all over the world, that builds meaningful relationships between people and the products and services that they use.

We recognize outstanding Interaction Design from all over the world, welcoming work that is created by individuals, companies, as well as students.



Why Enter

Our goal with these awards is to help the world appreciate the range and importance of Interaction Design. Every entry is considered and reviewed by industry leaders, hiring managers, and industry peers within the Awards jury and IxDA Peer Review Committee.

All shortlisted entries receive one free registration to the Interaction 22 conference, culminating in an awards ceremony where creators of winning work are announced and presented with the Interaction Award trophy.

All winning and finalist work is added to a living library created to help people discover the best work and uncover trends, insights, and talent that defines excellence. Winning and finalist work is also featured throughout the year on IxDA’s online channels, social media, and as case studies that celebrate designers and their processes.


Award Categories

Entries will be considered for the following awards:

  • Connecting – Facilitating communication between people and communities
  • Disrupting – Re-imagining existing systems via new behaviors, usages, or markets
  • Empowering – Helping people to do things they otherwise couldn’t do
  • Engaging – Capturing attention, creating delight and delivering meaning
  • Expressing – Enabling self expression and/or creativity
  • Optimizing – Making daily activities more efficient

Entries are evaluated by a Peer Review Committee of the IxDA community to determine a shortlist of outstanding work. A jury of expert design leaders and practitioners will be convened to deliberate, determine best category fit, and select finalists and winners.
