The Global Competition for Excellent Experiences

Our Mission

The UX Design Awards foster the impact user experience has on shaping our lives, products and services. Originating in 2008 as a show for good usability, we established the Awards in 2015.

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.

Experience design is a strategic field. UX designers combine market research, user insights, design and technology to shape the entire user journey across all touch points.

By delivering products that work and people love, experience design makes a significant contribution to increasing customer satisfaction and achieving business goals.

The UX Design Awards honor meaningful products and services that deliver better outcomes and solutions for real-world needs, driving positive change.

Our thorough approach to judging – and the focus on a key design field – make the UX Design Awards stand out among other design competitions.

The UX Design Awards are central to our mission: to promote accomplished design and to recognize the people involved.
