Site9, Inc. today announced the ProtoShare Challenge, offering a $1,000 prize for the best interactive prototype of a website, mobile site or software application created with ProtoShare, one of the industry’s leading collaborative user interface prototyping tools. In addition, three prizes of $250 each will be awarded for honorable mentions. Winners will be selected based on the quality of the design, user experience, completeness and overall effectiveness of their interactive prototypes. Entries must be received by 6:00pm Pacific Daylight Time on July 31, 2013.

Entries in the ProtoShare Challenge may consist of one prototype design or multiple designs of the site or application for various devices. High fidelity prototypes are encouraged. Prototypes will be judged based on four criteria:

  • Design: Is the visual design of the prototype compelling and effective?
  • User Experience: Is the interactivity intuitive and simple to use, given the mission of the prototype?
  • Completeness: How close to the final product is the prototype?
  • Overall Effectiveness: How well does the prototype solve the problems it purports to address?

All entries will be judged by a committee of ProtoShare employees. Winners will be notified via email by August 30, 2013.

1) For existing ProtoShare customers, prototypes should be exported as a zip file and sent via email to Marketing(at)ProtoShare(dot)com.
