Employ your UI and UX design skills to help make it easier for organizations around the world to be recognized for complying with international data privacy standards.

DATA PRIVACY CERTIFICATION - UI/UX DESIGN CHALLENGE

Are you a UI/UX wizard? Can you make a complex process easy to understand? The U.S. International Trade Administration (ITA) is looking to encourage the adoption of data privacy certifications by streamlining the process through a new secure web application. The Data Privacy Challenge gives you the opportunity to design the user interface for this software and share in the $60,000 purse.

To participate in this challenge, you must create a high-fidelity mockup of this new application that presents this complex process in a way that is easy to understand and navigate. Your mockup must include both the applicant’s and certifier’s views, all the elements described in the Challenge Brief, follow the design requirements, show innovative and creative approaches, and be easy to understand and navigate. Ideas from the winning designs will be incorporated into the final Data Privacy Certification (DPC) software.

CHALLENGE OVERVIEW
The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Cross Border Privacy Rules (CBPR) System was developed to build consumer, business, and regulator trust in cross-border flows of personal information. The CPBR System facilitates international data transfers and compliance with data privacy requirements across jurisdictions. There are two certifications that are part of the APEC CBPR System: the CBPR certificate, for data controllers, and the Privacy Recognition for Processors (PRP) certificate, for data processors. Organizations can apply for either the CBPR, the PRP, or both.

In order to receive either certificate, an organization works with a Certifying Body (CB). A CB is an organization that has been approved to certify organizations’ compliance with the CBPR or the PRP program requirements. An organization applying for a CBPR or PRP certificate completes an intake questionnaire and provides supporting documentation about their existing privacy programs and statements. A Certifying Agent (CA) from the CB will review all the information and indicate if it is complete or what is missing or needs to be improved. Once the CB determines the business is compliant in all areas, they submit a report, and then the organization receives its certification. Each certification lasts for a year before needing to be renewed.

A new secure web application is being developed by the ITA to allow the certification process to be completed more easily online. The aim is to increase the number of countries that offer these certificates, and for more companies to receive certification. This will improve the adoption of consistent approaches to data privacy worldwide and help facilitate international trade. The software will be distributed by the ITA to CBs. They will use it to work with organizations, referred to as Certified Organizations (CO), to become certified, maintain and renew their certification, or apply for a different certification.

For this challenge, you will need to create a high-fidelity mockup and a Figma prototype of the user interface for this application. Submissions will be judged on submission quality, functionality, usability, design and accessibility, innovation, and visual look and feel. Up to 7 solutions will share in the $60,000 prize, and ideas from those submissions will be implemented in the final software.

PRIZES ($60,000)
The best UX design will be awarded $20,000. Two first runner-up prizes of $10,000, and four second runner-up prizes of $5,000 will also be awarded. Only submissions that meet the challenge and eligibility requirements will be eligible for awards.
The winning participants will transfer any and all intellectual property rights to @poweredbyFLN when awarded the prizes.

SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS
Note: A team or individual may submit more than one solution to the challenge. However, each submission must be a substantially different solution. For example, the design and/or flow of the software is substantially different.

    Hi,
    I have a question. I have all of my wireframes and work process on AdobeXD because I'm not comfortable with Figma, but the final design will be in Figma (Hi-Fi and Prototype). I want to make sure that they will see the wireframes and my other iterations since they are important to understand my thought process. Will they be able to view them in Adobe XD?
    Thanks!

    Hi Folks,

    Clearing out a clarification about eligibility that one of the participants asked which is good for everyone to know.

    If you are a resident of a designated country, you are allowed to participate. Essentially we want the solution (design) to come from a designated country.

    For Example,
    If you are a citizen of a designated country but are residing and building the solution in a non-designated country, your solution will not be eligible

    If you are a citizen of a non-designated country but are residing and building the solution in a designated country, your solution will be eligible

    Hello, the contest coordinator...When I asked you about being a citizen of Egypt, am I allowed to enter the contest..the answer was yes..and according to the text of your answer that Egypt is one of the designated countries..and you today changed the response that I am not allowed because Egypt is not designated countries. Knowing that my colleague from Bangladesh asked the same question and you told him that he is not allowed to participate and today the answer has been changed that it is allowed...Please be careful in your responses to us because I spent time working on this project as a result of your first answer that you gave By changing it .. which caused a waste of my time and this is something I did not like to happen with a respected platform like Freelancer .
