The UXUK Awards 2016 round up

Thank you, everyone, for making this year’s UXUK Awards the best ever. We are humbled by all the love coming through.

Well, 2016 has been another year of growth and expansion for UX. More UX related events and conferences, more UX jobs and courses and with the resurgence of virtual reality, more areas in need of design. Most of all, we’ve been more variety and quality of entries for 2016. Read More “The UXUK Awards 2016 round up”

2015ceremony-2

It’s been a big year for entries at UXUK Awards. The judges have been busy going through over 120 entries and to come up with this year’s shortlist and it wasn’t easy with such compelling entries all round. We have been thoroughly impress with designers and organisations continuing to raise the bar to new levels, and above all design around the user!

Congratulations to the shortlisted entries! We look forward to celebrating on the official awards night Thursday 10th of November when the winners will be announced.

Entries have officially closed

We have now officially closed entries for the 2016 UXUK Awards.

Thank you to overwhelming number of entries this year. We have been seeing many great names, sites, apps and more. Shortlisting will begin very soon, so stayed tuned on Twitter and this site for announcements.

If you’d like to attend the event, you can apply for tickets.

We’ve extended the deadline by 1 week

We have decided to extend the entry deadline by 1 week to 1600 hrs, Wednesday 21st September.

This is due to the overwhelming requests to allow more time. That’s fine. It’s summer and we’ve all been benefiting from a warm September. A deadline was the only natural option. But we can’t extend it any further. It’ll annoy the judges and everything else that works to the timeline of the awards.

If you have not yet entered, this is your chance. It takes minutes to enter and a lifetime to enjoy!

Judge’s Q&A: Anna Burrell

Judge: Anna Burrell
Role: UX & UI Design and Development at John Lewis

  1. Do you have a favourite app & website in terms of the design and user experience?

    BBC News app – I never read a newspaper, and I want quick snippets of up to date news at my fingertips.
    The BBC News app allows some personalisation, which suits my needs. It also provides me with an “at a glance” view of what’s happening now.
    It’s simple to navigate and not overly designed, and remains true to brand.
