UX Design Awards
The Global Competition for Excellent Experiences
The UX Design Awards foster the impact experience design has on shaping our lives. Originating in 2008 as a show for good usability, we established the Awards in 2015. Ever since, the UX Design Awards have been honoring exceptional experiences and presenting UX talent across the world. The list of winners reads like a who is who of the industry.
The UX Design Awards present great experiences and accomplished solutions – across all fields and industries worldwide – twice per year.
Design is about improving people's lives. We believe that good people-centered design can deliver on this promise because it is informed by the aims, wishes, and emotions of real people. The UX Design Awards reflect this by honoring products and concepts that provide meaningful solutions for real needs – effectively creating positive change.
Our thorough approach – and the focus on a key design field – makes the UX Design Awards stand out among other design competitions.
The jury is at the heart of the Awards. The International Design Center Berlin invites experienced design and industry leaders to evaluate entries in a multi-stage procedure. We take great care to appoint jurors according to their experience, knowledge and expertise in different fields. All jury decisions are made by majority vote – entirely independent of the organizers.

»The UX Design Awards are a good opportunity to see the cutting-edge projects out there, and to keep the finger on the pulse of the UX world.«Jury Member Sabine Berghaus, Principal Key Expert for Digital User Experience, Siemens
