Submitting an Entry

Who can submit entries for nomination?

Nominations are open to anyone recently involved in a user-centric project. This can be your own project or one you fancy. You can be a client, agency, company, designer, department manager or university student.

Can I nominate more than one project / piece of work?

Yes! Simply hit the “+” on the ‘Submit your entry’ page.

Does the project / work I nominate need to have been completed within the year of the Awards (2016 – 2017)?

For UXUK Awards 2017 we have been much more stringent on this, requiring nominations to have been launched/created/started/finished/enacted/etc.in 2016 – 2017.

How are the Award recipients determined? Who selects the winners?

The Award winners are determined by the judging panel.

After the application deadline, the judges review all submissions and determine a shortlist of no more than 5 nominees in each category. This shortlist will be announced by the end of September and the nominees informed immediately. Next the judges meet to critically discuss the nominations within the context of the category. Following this discussion the judges then cast their votes thus determining the recipient of the award. The winners will be announced at the Awards ceremony and a list placed online after the awards.

What criteria will be considered by the judges during the selection process?

See our guide to the judging criteria.
