The UX Design Awards, organised by International Design Centre, Berlin, has announced its nominations for the 2022 awards, whittling down more than 300 submissions from 58 countries, to just 101 projects, which will now compete in the global competition. The 2022 UX Design Award winners will be announced and honoured in a virtual award ceremony streamed live on 1 March 2022.
This year’s nominees will compete in three competition categories: the Product, Concept Awards geared toward the professional sector, and the New Talent Award, which will honour young designers.
The nominated projects come from a diverse field of participants from 20 different countries. Submitters range from students to large international corporations, from startups to world-spanning media conglomerates, from design agencies to social networks.
Among the nominated entries are promising solutions, products, and services from various application areas such as healthcare, entertainment and gaming, communication and networking, education and training, fitness and wellness, finance, software & IoT, R&D, retail and industry, and professional and consumer products.
Many submissions deal with the pandemic and its repercussions, including medical therapy devices, remote working solutions, services catering to changing consumer behaviour, and a COVID-19 contact tracing app with over 40 million downloads.
All nominees for the UX Design Awards 2022 are available to view in an online exhibition on the UXDA-website and online voting for the “Public Choice” Award 2022 is open until 28 February 2022.
The UX Design Awards now has two seasons per year, and the second round of the competition will be open for submissions from 1 March to 31 May 2022 – pre-registration for the second Awards season is already open. All participation details and competition deadlines are available on the UXDA-Website.
