There are no limits on what you can enter, including concepts, applications, devices and services. Your submission should include 2 parts:

Describe who they are, what they do and what motivates them. Include as much information as possible to show you have conducted thorough research into the unique requirements, preferences and behavioural traits of your target users.
2) An illustrated guide to the user experience you’ve created
Using a combination of written explanation, images and video, show how the experience you’ve designed meets the needs of the users. Each entry must include a written summary, an image and a PDF with further details. Contestants can also link to an optional video of their entry – this is highly recommend and greatly assists the judging panel.

|> What does winning a MEX Award mean?|
“All of us have great ideas but there are many who lack a platform to showcase these ideas to the world. The MEX Awards symbolises encouragement and confidence for an individual who has an idea. Winning the 2008 MEX Award gave me that encouragement and boosted my confidence in pursuing my own ideas. Being judged by industry leaders and experts, it also reinforced the marketability and potential viability of my concept.”
