The Artful Integration Award
We welcome nominations for the fifth Artful Integration Award, to be presented at PDC 2012 in Roskilde, Denmark. The Award is intended to recognize outstanding achievement in the area of participatory design of information and communications technologies. Where traditional design awards have gone to individual designers and singular objects, the Artful Integration Award emphasizes the importance of collaborative participation in design, and a view of good design as the effective alignment of diverse collections of people, practices and artifacts. The award will go to a group of people who together have worked out, in an exceptionally creative way, a new and useful integration. While no single element of the design might be particularly extraordinary in itself, the combination of design process and resulting possibilities will be.
- The first Artful Integration Award was presented at PDC 2004 to the Global Fund for Women.
