Interaction Design Association (IxDA) 2010 Global Student Competition: Submissions open

Submissions are now open for the Interaction Design Association (IxDA) Global Student Interaction Design Competition. Submissions are due by November 30th, 23:59, US/PST.

This competition is the first of its kind: IxDA will bring 5 finalists to Interaction 10 | Savannah, the 3rd Annual International Conference co-hosted by the Savannah College of Art & Design where they will compete head to head to find a winner. All finalists will be given a full scholarship for attending the conference.

Unlike other design competitions where the goal is to find the best design, this competition is looking for the best designer. This is why this is an individual only competition.

The competition is open to any student, graduate or undergraduate and any student who has finished their course in the last year. Students can submit any work done as a student, so long as he work was done individually.

I’m honored to have been invited to take part of the jury, and I’d love to see fresh, creative work submitted.
