Design Knowledge Intermediary
Student Design Competition :: CREATE 2010 conference

Deadline: Closed

Today’s art, design and technology students are the people who will be defining what the interdisciplinary field of interaction design will become in the near future. Create10 is a conference that celebrates innovative interaction design, whether digital products, services, environments or new interaction paradigms.

This competition is aimed at students from a range of disciplines, both undergraduate and postgraduate, in interaction design, product design, industrial design, communications design, architecture, fashion, multimedia, HCI, and related fields.

Competition brief

The conference theme of ‘transitions’ is the inspiration for this competition brief. They want to receive entries that scope, explore, define and prototype interactions that make transitions visible. These could be transitions that investigate the relationship between the analogue and digital realms, or systems that make visible transitions across time, place or information spaces.

Entries will be assessed by a jury of leading creative design practitioners and academics, and all selected submissions will be exhibited at the Create10 conference exhibition in June/July 2010 in Edinburgh, at New Media Scotland’s Inspace.

Initial submission deadline: March 31st 2010
Successful exhibitors will be notified by the end of April 2010

CREATE10 :: the conference for innovative interactions

CREATE 2010 is a 2-day conference about creating innovative interactions, whether digital consumer products, interactive services or interaction paradigms. A conference where the emphasis is on sharing the wealth of creative ideas we have developed to resolve problems, to create new capabilities, or new functions; where the aim is to evolve further creative designs that can make a difference to people. After three successful years in Convent Garden, London, 2010 the conference will be moving to Edinburgh Napier University, Scotland, UK.

CREATE is jointly organised by the Human-Computer Interaction Specialist Group of the Ergonomics Society, and British Computing Society's Interaction Specialist Group. Provisional dates are 30th June to 2nd July 2010. The Call for Participation will be out soon for papers, videos, exhibitions, demos and workshops.
