The 2015 James Dyson Award, an international design competition that challenges students to design something that solves a problem, is now open for entries.
The award celebrates ingenuity, creativity and sustainable engineering. Entrants are encouraged to do more with less, designing with the environment in mind - using fewer raw materials, consuming less energy and creating a technology that will perform better and last for longer.
"Young people have the power to change the world through engineering. Each year the James Dyson Award sees truly remarkable solutions to real-life problems all approached from different angles," James Dyson said. "No problem is too big and the simplest solutions are the best - use the award as a stepping stone to take your invention towards commercialization."
The James Dyson Award runs in 20 countries. The contest is open to university level students (and recent graduates) studying product design, industrial design and engineering.
The competition is open for entries until July 2nd, 2015.
