Design competition: Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering Trophy

The Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering will launch a competition next Tuesday, 9 October in association with the Tate, the Design Museum and the Science Museum, for young people in the UK to design the iconic trophy that will be presented to the winner of the prestigious £1 million international prize.

16 to 24 year olds will be invited to submit a design that represents the wonder of modern engineering. Anyone in that age group can enter, with particular interest expected from those studying or working in art, design, fashion and technology, as well as those studying or working in engineering. The winning entry will reflect the creativity, power and importance of engineering so that the trophy is a symbol of the integral role the engineering profession plays in society.

Finalists will see their designs prototyped using state-of-the-art 3D printing. Every finalist will be invited to London to present their prototyped design in person to the panel of judges, which includes architect Dame Zaha Hadid; Director of the Tate, Sir Nicholas Serota; Science Museum director, Ian Blatchford; Design Museum director, Deyan Sudjic; and design engineer, Yewande Akinola. The winning design will be used to create the trophy for the inaugural Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering and the winning designer will also receive £5,000.
