The James Dyson Design Award 2017

Publish Date: Apr 21, 2017

Deadline: Jul 20, 2017

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.

THE BRIEF

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.

THE JUDGING PROCESS

  • JUL
    AUG
    STAGE 1

    A panel of design and engineering professionals in each region select the National Winner and finalists.

    Once the Award closes for entries, a panel of local judges will select the top 5 projects in each region. Projects will be judged purely on quality of entry – from the significance of the design to the various iterations of the design and how the product has developed. The judges will select one national winner and up to 4 additional entries per region to advance to the next level of the competition.

  • AUG
    SEP
    STAGE 2

    Dyson engineers identify the International Top 20 entries.

    The 115 entries chosen by local judges move on to a panel of Dyson design engineers who further scrutinise the projects. Dyson engineers look for how well each design answers the brief, concentrating on the commercial viability. The Top 20 entries selected by Dyson engineers will move on to the final round – there will not necessarily be one entry selected from each country.

  • SEP
    OCT
    STAGE 3

    James Dyson chooses the international winner.

    The Top 20 move on to the final stage – a review by James Dyson. James reviews each entry and determines his favourites, which are then scrutinised by the IP team at Dyson looks at each entry to spot any infringements on third party intellectual property. James then selects the international winner.
