About the Organization

World Usability Day is single day of events occurring around the world that brings together communities of  professional, industrial, educational, citizen, and government groups for our common objective: to ensure that the services and products  important to life are easier to access and simpler to use.

It is about  celebration and education—celebrating the strides we have made in  creating usable products and educating the masses about how usability  impacts our daily lives. It is about making our world work better. It is  about reaching out to the common citizen and spreading the message: We  don’t have to put up with products and services that don’t work well and  that human error is a misnomer.

No one should have to suffer through products and services that get in their way. People should not be made to feel stupid by technology.

About the Challenge

s designers, we are concerned with, as Herbert Simon noted, “how things ought to be.” This year’s World Usability Day theme asks us to consider how things can be improved to create a better world for all. We have come a long way as a society, yet we still face fundamental human challenges such as war, poverty, climate change, renewable energy, and social justice. Designers can play a critical role in addressing these challenges by creating solutions that seek to improve the human condition and make the world more just.

For 2024, The WUI Design Challenge continues to call on the design community to share evidence of specific impacts of insights from user research and evaluation on detailed design decisions. A focus on users in design is primarily supported through research into target usage contexts and evaluation of designs in use. For 2024, we seek submissions to the WUI DC that showcase excellent user-focused design that addresses the theme of Designing for a Better World. Submitted Design Challenge entries will present evidence of user research and evaluation that had a clear and valuable impact on interaction, product and/or service design recommendations and decisions. Such evidence should let the general public (including UN decision-makers) ‘get it’ by demonstrating connections between research, evaluation, and worthwhile design outcomes.

Winners will be announced on World Usability Day, November 14, 2024. The WUI DC collaborates with the HCI International (HCII) conference, which sponsors three awards (Gold $1250, Silver $1000 and Bronze $750). The Gold, Silver, and Bronze recipients of the WUI DC Awards winners will be cordially invited, with complimentary registration, to present their innovative, impactful design work in a special session during the 2024 HCI International Conference. They can also have a written account included in the proceedings as a paper or late-breaking results (with a later deadline for their manuscript).

How to Apply

The Design Challenge is open to entries. Submissions are due on or before September 16, 2024.
