2013 James Dyson Award now open for entries

The 2013 James Dyson Award is now open for entries and the competition prize fund has increased to £96,000

 

The James Dyson Award is an annual challenge open to young engineers and scientists inviting them to design something that solves a problem.

Applications are now open and this year the Award has upped the prize fund amount to £96,000. The money goes towards helping the winner to develop their ideas.

“Young design engineers have the ability to develop tangible technologies, which can change lives," said James Dyson. 

"The award rewards those who have the persistence and tenacity to develop their ideas – it is an exciting but challenging process. Often the simplest ideas have the biggest impact.”

Last year's winner was Dan Watson who invented Safetynet, a type of escape ring that can be fitted to nets to help foster sustainable fishing.

The award is run in eighteen countries and is open to any university level student of product design, industrial design or engineering. Entrants have until August 1st to submit prototypes along with stories detailing their design process and inspiration.
