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.
Why should I enter the James Dyson Award?
Lots of reasons. The chance to win nationally or internationally – and the prestige. The James Dyson Award celebrates and publicises the work of young designers on a global platform. You will also have a project page on the James Dyson Foundation’s website – a place to direct family, friends, professors, and even investors and prospective employers.
