James Dyson Award 2016 Open For Entries

Calling all engineers, designers and inventors: you have until July 19, 2016 to enter the James Dyson Award 2016!

The brief: design something that solves a problem. The prize: $45,000.

The James Dyson Award is an international student design competition, open in 22 countries around the world. Entrants must submit a product or concept which solves a tangible problem, and works better. They’re looking for inventions that do more with less, designed with the environment in mind. They should have a significant and practical purpose, and have the potential to be commercially viable.

“Young people have the power to change the world through engineering. Each year the James Dyson Award sees truly remarkable solutions to everyday problems and as the award grows around the world we are seeing more problems solved from more angles. No problem is too big. The simplest solutions are the best.” says James Dyson.

In 2013 we were honored to be a finalist for the International James Dyson Award and this year we’re excited that our founder Kent Frankovich will be on the panel judging the entries!

The James Dyson Award 2016 opened for entries on February 18, and will close on July 19. The competition is open to both individuals and teams. To enter the competition, click here.
