Planning is well underway for the 6th annual Vancouver User Experience Awards, and we’re excited to update you all with a few changes and new opportunities as we gear up for this year’s Awards season.
A new organizing committee
For five years, a small team of incredible leaders from Habanero, POWERSHiFTER, and OXD fearlessly and tirelessly ran the Vancouver Experience Awards. Since 2014 the Awards have been a much anticipated event where local UX design could be celebrated, and community could be built.
For the 2019 Awards season, the torch has been passed to Antenna Consulting, Apply Digital, and Domain7. We humbly and gratefully thank the Founding Organizers for the community that has been built through this event, and are glad to keep their expertise and experience by our side as they serve as Board members going forward.
New award categories
Based on feedback from the community, we’ve introduced a few changes to the Award categories for 2019. New categories like UX for E-Commerce and UX for Business have been added, and students will have the opportunity to submit either to the Teams or the Individuals categories. And, for the first time, the People’s Choice voting will take place at Demo Day! Tickets open soon, so be sure to get yours quick!
Call for sponsors
Sponsoring the Vancouver UX Awards is a fantastic way to support the local UX community, gain brand awareness, and aid your recruiting efforts by connecting with industry leaders and emerging talent. With the new categories for 2019, there are even more opportunities to sponsor! Check out our sponsor brochure here, or get in touch with us to find out what categories are still available.
We’ll be updating this space regularly, so please follow along as we gear up for the 6th annual Vancouver User Experience Awards. Awards submissions and tickets to all events will be open later in August - in the meantime, mark your calendars for November 27th!
