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. Additional submissions will be pre-screened to ensure the team is eligible and the submissions are substantially different. If two submissions from the same team are deemed to be too similar, only the most recent submission will be considered for judging.

    Hello @poweredByFreelancer,

    I really don't understand why you've rejected my entry. Cause it took me at least a month to develop the concepts, designs and prototype. You simply reject them without stating any reason. I'm submitting my entry from a designated country and I've stated this in the google forms. & I've also provided the links to prototype & file as well.

    It took so many hours for me to build this. Please don't reject them blindly. Respect our efforts.

    Please kindly reconsider my entry. Kindly include my entry for DPC team to evaluate cause I've included a lot of great ideas in my design.

    Thank you.

    Please do this favour for us. Highly requested by everyone.

    Please grant just three more days for everyone. Cause there will be a lot of good designers in this freelancer community who already have participated, but due to insufficient time not being able to submit or upload the complete prototype. Just give us 3 more days.

    That's just we are asking. Just 3 more days.


    Please kindly escalate the issue to concerned authority.

      thanks for letting me know, I actually placed the design into different Figma pages under the same Figma link, which includes cover/about/low-fi wireframe/hi-fi wireframe pages and I thought that would be easier to navigate. Of course, I can put everything into one page if that makes the most sense.
