The James Dyson Award is open - deadline 2 July 2015
The James Dyson Award is an international design award that celebrates, encourages and inspires the next generation of design engineers. The award is open to current and recent design engineering students. It’s run by the James Dyson Foundation, James Dyson’s charitable trust, as part of its mission to get young people excited about design engineering.
Design something that solves a problem.
'The brief is broad. We’re looking for designers who think differently to create products that work better. Engineers who follow an iterative design process. Rough and ready prototypes. Products that have a significant and practical purpose, are commercially viable, and are designed with sustainability in mind.'
The award runs in 20 countries and has been opened out to include Hong Kong and Taiwan for the first time this year. University level students and recent graduates of product design, industrial design and engineering can enter.
