[itvt] Presents...The Interface Showcase at TVOT NYC 2014

  • A Contest and Special Session that Honors the Best TV and Video UI/UX Designs of 2014
  • Deadline for Submissions Is November 18th

[itvt] is pleased to announce that TVOT NYC 2014 will see the return of The Interface Showcase, our popular contest and session that honors the best TV and video User Interface/User Experience (UI/UX) designs of the past year.

Here's a video introduction to the Interface Showcase from Wes Williams, Director of Product Management at Scripps Networks Interactive, who will be leading the special Interface Showcase session at TVOT NYC 2014:

Here's more on how the Interface Showcase works:

1) From now through November 18th, companies and individuals are invited to submit their nominations--including both deployed and not-yet-deployed projects, and even imaginative visions of television's design future--to swedlow@itvt.com. Nominations should include:

  • a link to a video, a slide presentation, screenshots or a mock-up of the nominated project;
  • a short description of the nominated project;
  • a short explanation of what makes it a great and groundbreaking UI/UX design.

2) TVOT's "Dragons of Design" (our braintrust of prominent TV and video designers from such companies as CNN, Cisco, You.i, Trollback+Company, W12 Studios, and others) will then select finalists in several categories (e.g. best UI's/UX's for Recommendations/Metadata/Discovery, for Social TV and Advertising, for TV Everywhere, for Smart TV, and more: the exact categories will be determined by [itvt] and the Dragons of Design based on the range of nominations received).

3)  Each finalist will receive one free ticket to the show.

4)  In a special session at TVOT NYC 2014 (December 9th in New York City--purchase your tickets here!), the "Dragons of Design" will evaluate and debate the finalists and select a grand prize winner. The session will be interactive, with the audience being invited to choose a "People's Choice" winner in addition.

5)    In addition to being honored at TVOT NYC 2014, winners and finalists will be showcased on the [itvt] and TVOT Web sites, as well as in a special issue of the [itvt] newsletter that will be published in the New Year.
