Write an Essay on Usability, Win a Kindle!

Human Factors International is sponsoring an essay writing contest for the upcoming World Usability Day 2009. The top two essays will be taking home a spiffy new Kindle reading device from Amazon.com.

Since the theme of this year’s World Usability Day is “Designing for Sustainability,” the essay should answer the question:

How can the User Experience Community support the future of sustainability?

Each essay submission should be between 100-300 words and it will be judged on the merits on Practicality,  Strategic View,  Human Centricity, and Magnitude of Impact. All usability essays should be written in English.

The deadline for submission is on November 6, 2009 and the winners will be announced on World Usability Day, November 12, 2009. Once you’re done writing, you can submit you essay at the contest website.
