The UX Design Awards honor the huge impact of accomplished experience design on shaping a positive living environment for all.

Design is about improving people’s lives. We believe only design that focuses on people has the potential to improve the world in a sustainable. To create meaningful solutions to people’s needs, designers need to understand their goals, desires, and emotions.

The UX Design Awards reflect the impact of user and customer experience design on shaping a positive living environment for everybody. 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 experience design across the world.

The competition takes place twice per year. It is open to products, services, environments, concepts and visions; as well as to master's and bachelor's projects from around the world.
