The brief is ’Design Something That Solves a Problem’. Organizer is looking for designers who think differently, to create products that work better. This year the James Dyson will also looking for entries that address a sustainability issue, or have been designed, sourced or manufactured sustainably.

If you don’t want to work alone, or if you studied something else but have a brilliant idea you want to share, you can still enter as part of a team.

You can enter as many projects as you want, and you are encouraged to enter your design even if it’s at the latter stage of the design process or is already on the market. At all times, the intellectual property in relation to the project will remain the entrant’s.

Projects will be judged on the strength of the entry, not just the invention itself. You’ll need to communicate the significance of your invention, but also how the product was developed and how you reached your final design. Demonstrating an iterative, trial-and-error approach will serve you well.

Sir James Dyson will select (at his discretion) the international JDA winner, the international JDA runners-up and the sustainability winner.

No entry fee

Deadline: 19 Jul 2023
