UX Design Awards – Honoring UX- and CX-Excellence since 2008

  • Ake Rudolf Head of Strategy, IDZ International Design Center Berlin

Design is about improving people’s lives. We believe that human-centered design can create positive change, as it focuses on aims, wishes and emotions of people – and by doing so, creates meaningful solutions for their needs. The UX Design Awards reflect the huge impact of user and customer experience design on shaping a positive living environment for all.

The UX Design Awards are a global competition for user and customer experience.  With the awards, International Design Center Berlin (IDZ) honors innovative solutions that increase the added value of new applications, technologies and services through positive experiences. Participants come from all around the globe and range from large and medium-sized brands, industrial and service companies to innovative start-ups and creative agencies. The list of former winners reads like a who is who of the industry.

The annual competition comprises a total of four competition categories: there is a Product-, a Concept and a Vision Award for the professional sector. In addition, we introduced the New Talent Award for young designers this year and were very happy about the great response.

The International Design Center Berlin (IDZ) has been organising the UX Design Awards since 2015. The awards evolved from the “Usability Awards” and the annual “Usability Park” exhibition, with which IDZ has been showcasing selected user-centred product solutions at the IFA Berlin trade show since 2008. Upto and including last year, all annual UX Design Awards-nominees were presented in an exhibition and honored in an award ceremony at the global technology show IFA in Berlin, Germany.

This year, due to the Covid-19-situation, we held a Virtual Award Ceremony on 3 September. All #UXDA20-nominees and winners are presented on a dedicated UXDA20-web-plattform, which we launched in August.

At the heart of the competition: The UXDA-Jury

The UXDA-jury is at the heart of the competition. Every year we hear from the participants that the competence and experience of the jurors is seen as an important unique selling point of the UX Design Awards.

We are therefore very pleased that ten outstanding minds have put the numerous submissions from all over the world through their paces.

Of course we were particularly happy to have won designaffairs’ very own Martin Jentsch for this role. His experience and expertise in UX, Research and Interaction Concepts proved to be invaluable in the deliberations during our jury session.
