About the prize

Both challenges will have a winning team who will both receive a £500 cash prize and trophy.

Both winning teams will also win an all-expenses-paid trip to attend the IET’s prestigious Innovation Awards ceremony in London where the winning solutions will be revealed to the audience.

The winners are also invited to take the stage to receive their prizes.

About the Innovation Awards

The IET Innovation Awards celebrate the very best innovations in science, engineering and technology. The categories span the breadth of the IET’s remit and are judged by a panel of experts in their field.

The awards aim to be as inclusive as possible and are open to any individual, company or organisation anywhere in the world. The range of categories are chosen to reflect the breath of engineering and technology and are reviewed every year to ensure that they are kept up to date.

Now attracting over 400 entries the IET Innovation Awards has grown in size and prestige in the engineering and technology community. The ceremony is a gala black tie affair with a celebrity host to guide proceedings as guests enjoy a sumptuous dinner.
