‘Create the Trophy ’ is an competition for young designers to create a unique trophy for the Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering (QEPrize) 2015. The QEPrize is a £1 million award for engineering that has been of global impact on humanity.
From fashion to fusion there is no part of our lives that engineering does not touch.
We are giving young people with an interest in Science, Engineering, Design, and Art the opportunity to design the trophy for the QEPrize by entering our ‘Create the Trophy’ competition. The competition is open from 23 June ‐ 31 August.
The winning design will be selected by our distinguished panel of judges: Ian Blatchford (Chairman), Director of the Science Museum, Roma Agrawal, Structural Engineer at Arup and M&S Leading Lady and Mark Miodownik, Director of the Institute of Making, UCL.
The ﬁnal trophy will be presented by HM The Queen to the winner of the Queen Elizabeth Prize for
Engineering at Buckingham Palace in Summer 2015. The winner of the Create the Trophy
competition will also receive £2,000.
