"I will be looking for entries which truly put the human being they serve at the centre. They should solve a real problem and be purposeful. I'd like to see outcomes which move people emotionally and functionally forward. Design with a capital "D" will be at the heart of the best submissions. I will be looking for thoughtful use of data and AI which is ethically sound; everyone in the industry has a huge responsibility with their stewardship of technology."
