Interaction Design Association (IxDA) 2010 Global Student Competition: Deadline Extension, Open now to Groups

After careful consultation among the jury and feedback from representatives of some of the top IxD educational institutions from around the world, the competition organizers have made two big decisions:

  1. DEADLINE EXTENSION: We are extending the deadline by a full month to 31-Dec-2009 (11:59p US/Pacific Standard Time).
    If you have submitted your work prior to 26-Nov (noon US/Pacific Standard Time) you can re-submit your work. Otherwise, all submissions are final.
  2. GROUPS/TEAMS: We are now opening up the competition to group submissions. However, and this is a big “however”, only 1 representative can be declared the “primary representative” for a team or group and be eligible to win the scholarship to Interaction 10 | Savannah and compete in Stage 2 of the competition.

The Student Competition section of the conference web site has been fully updated to represent these changes and have further details effected by these changes.

We hope this will allow for more contributions and create a better representation of the type of work that educational institutions are working on.

Thank you to everyone who helped guide this decision and for everyone’s patience as we make a very unique competition come to life.

We look forward to all the great work from students. And since in the US this is the eve before a big holiday weekend, please do help spread the word, far and wide through your networks.
