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:
- 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.
- 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.
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.
