About

How it works

Register your team (2-5 members) by 20th September 2012
On 22nd September 2012 at 10:00am (AEST) we will publish the design brief for this year’s challenge on this website, after which your team will have 24 hours to design a solution.
You will have to demonstrate your solution in form of a video prototype or concept video, and document your process via a team blog.
A jury of international experts will select four top entries, which will receive a A$1,000 Google travel scholarship each to present their solution at OzCHI 2012.
At OzCHI the finalists will present their entries in a dedicated student design challenge session. (Presentations via Skype is possible, if your team can’t attend OzCHI.)
The finalists will receive certificates of recognition and prizes sponsored by our industry partners during the OzCHI closing ceremony.
