Announcing the 2014 Interaction Awards Finalists
Three weeks ago, our global Jury met at Fabrica in Italy to review all of the shortlisted entries and choose the best examples of Interaction Design for 2014. It was a daunting task to select up to five finalists per category, but our amazing jury was up to the challenge. We’re pleased to announce the finalists of the 2014 Interaction Awards, all of whom will be celebrated at Interaction14 in Amsterdam 5-8 of February, 2014. Best in Category, Best Concept, Best Student, Best in Show and the winner of the People’s Choice Award (all 91 shortlisted projects are eligible, with voting starting first week of January 2014) will be announced live at the Interaction Awards Celebration on Saturday evening, 8th of February. This will be a wonderful way to close out Interaction14 and celebrate.
Congratulations to the 2014 Interaction Awards finalists!
