Below is a short list of the things we expect you to submit.


Project Summary

Project title (30 Characters)

What are you going to call your product?

Summary/Slogan (30 Words)

A short phrase which could be used to market your product. This could be to attract attention to a distinctive product feature or simply to reinforce your brand!

What problem were you trying to solve? (100 Words)

Concisely describe the problem you are trying to solve and why you believe that solving it is so important. Describe the needs of the group/s of people that you are targeting with your product.

How did you solve the problem? (400 Words)

Here is your chance to summarise the design process you went through to reach your final product solution.

We want to hear about any part of this you deemed important- this could range from initial concept sketches, to prototype models, concept selection processes, engineering analysis, testing and more!

What would you do if you had more time/resource? (100 Words)

No product is perfect and no one has an unlimited amount of time and resources! What would you do next to further improve your design?

Product Images

 A maximum of 10 jpeg images of your project. These can include sketches, development work, CAD, testing, and photos of your finished product or any other images you think are appropriate for your entry.

Your images shouldn’t include text as the primary focus – bullet points and annotations are fine, but include your written explanation in the 500 word part of your submission.


Product Video - 2 mins (optional)

This part of the submission is optional, but will help our judges understand more about your project. This should consist of a short video showing your project. There’s no need for an Oscar winning performance, we want to see great Design Engineers not actors! You can use this as an opportunity to talk through or demonstrate how your product works, and how you solved the problem outlined in your design brief. This can be done with a smart phone – so don’t be shy!
