Today, we're honored to present our judges for the international Design for Experience awards.

We reached out to some of the best thinkers and doers in the realm of user-centered design, research, and education and are grateful to have a roster of judges who represent the many types of mastery that can be achieved in our diverse and growing field.

These are folks who understand what designing for experience is all about and we're excited to join them in the process of selecting the best products, services, and teams that have something special to teach us.

Many of our judges will be familiar to you, both through their outstanding work in the field and, in many cases, their fantastic contributions to UX Magazine. Meet our judges here. You can also get a look at the 24 categories we’ve named for our inaugural award program and submit nominations.

Feel free to submit general nominations for individuals, organizations, or products that you feel demonstrate a thorough understanding of what UX is all about. If there’s a team, product, company, agency, or service that you feel deserves recognition, please nominate them right now!

We’ll continue sharing details about the program in the coming weeks, so sign up for email updates as well.
