The 4th Annual UXies are the premier global awards 
for exceptional digital experience. 


The UXies inspire all technologists to create elegant, human-centered products that solve real customer problems by honoring the most talented UX innovators, highlighting exceptional UX best practices and showcasing next-generation digital products.



The 4th Annual International UX Awards event and conference will be held in San Francisco, CA on September 11-12, 2014 for an inspiring and fun evening celebration showcase on September 11 and an educational and informative afternoon of talks, jobs and training on September 12, 2014.

The UXies will showcase each winning product and its creators; share UX practitioners’ creative processes and approach; reveal each expert judge’s evaluation process and perspective; provide many informal opportunities to meet winners, judges, applicants, senior UX professionals, hiring companies and providers; and offer concentrated and advanced UX training and education from the judges and other speakers, all while still leaving plenty of time to visit the city, work or attend other daytime events.

New for this year, the Friday afternoon sessions will allow judges, winners and select invited guest speakers to give advanced level UX talks and have more in-depth discussions with attendees on their evaluation criteria. The Friday afternoon UX job fair will also be the perfect avenue to hire UX talent or seek a new role and meet fellow UX devotees. 



The 2014 judges are top UX thought leaders and practitioners from enterprise and consumer services and software, startups, digital agencies, product design studios and Lean UX. Thursday Keynotes and additional Friday speakers will be announced in the coming months.
