IHCD wants to celebrate the people around the world who are making great strides in the design-for-all movement, while educating policy makers and designers on the concept.
This year's challenge is the Inclusive Design Challenge.
Inclusive Design Challenge looking for a digital media showcase that presents the inclusive design progress and success stories. It will be up to you to interpret how to express this—still images, film, audio, interactivity, or a combination. Multi-media interpretations will also be considered, but the final deliverable must be in digital format.
Inclusive Design is a framework for the design of places, things, information, communication and policy to be usable by the widest range of people operating in the widest range of situations without special or separate design. Most simply, Inclusive Design is human-centered design of everything with everyone in mind.
All work submitted must be an original creation of the team for The Torch Awards; no previously published/awarded work will be accepted. Teams must consist of at least 2 but no more than 4 individuals. Only one entry per Team will be accepted.
All entrants must be available to be present in New York City from 9:00am on May 18th through the New York Show awards presentation on the night of May 19th to qualify for Finalist Status.
There is no entry fee for this multimedial competition.
It's free to enter!
All entrants of this multimedial competition must be at least age 18 by May 18, 2016, but not older than 27.
Five Finalist Teams will be invited to New York City to present their ideas. Before they head into the pitch, they’ll fine-tune their work during an intensive work session with their mentor (a member of the New York Festivals International Advertising Awards Executive Jury).
Finalist Teams will also receive up to a 1,000 USD travel reimbursement on the day of the event to help defray costs.
The Grand-winning Team will receive a trophy, and could also see their work go live as an official campaign for The Institute for Human Centered Design.
