Experience for Children | 2013 Award Categories

Experience for Children

Children can be sophisticated users of technology, and with newer methods of interaction such as touch and gestures, digital systems are accessible to an even younger set of potential users. Every age bracket of children has different specific needs for content, navigation, interactions, and other aspects of product experiences. This award recognizes digital products for children that deliver excellent value, engagement, and ease of use for their users.


Night Zookeeper Teleporting Torch is a tablet app that challenges children to complete daily drawing missions like drawing the ocean without the color blue, or turning a boring picture of an old shoe into a magical animal. Judges found Teleporting Torch a little spooky and mysterious while also offering a rich experience that isn't condescending in the way many children's games are.
