Interaction Design Association (IxDA) 2010 Global Student Competition: THE FINALISTS

I recently took part on the jury of the first IxDA Global Student Design competition, which had over 40 entries, representing university programs in Australia, China, Columbia, Denmark, India, the Netherlands, South Korea, Taiwan, and the United States. Of those many entries, five have earned a full scholarship to Interaction10 conference, as well as the opportunity to compete for the Grand Prize: a Dell Tablet Laptop. The Runner-up will receive a Dell Mini Netbook.

IxDA community members who will be attending the conference, will have the opportunity to meet these talented students at Interaction10, and see their work first-hand. The finalists will be presenting posters of the work described below, as well as describing the work they will be doing on-site, just before the conference begins, in a live design challenge. Conference attendees will be invited to vote on both pieces of work and contribute to who will be selected for competition winner and runner up.

With no further ado, here are the finalists:

Now comes stage 2, with a brand new design task to be completed during the conference itself. So, stay tuned!
