Two Competitions

Posted in competitions, interaction design by Dan on November 4, 2009

The Interaction Design Association (IxDA) is running a student competition for Excellence in Interaction Design. The deadline for submissions is Nov. 30. Five finalists will get a free trip to the Interaction10 conference next February, where they’ll get to see Bill Moggridge, Paola Antonelli, and a bunch of other supercool designers.

By the way, since this is the first time I’m mentioning IxDA: if you’re interested in IxD, you can join IxDA and get onto the discussion list for free.

I’ll let The Fun Theory explain itself. The prize is €2,500. I don’t see any reason we can’t enter from the U.S., though.
