The James Dyson Award for problem solvers, Canada


The James Dyson Award: James Dyson Foundation is looking for designers who think differently, to create products that work better. Engineers who follow an iterative design process.

The judges – and James Dyson especially – are drawn to designs that employ clever yet simple engineering principles. If yours is a sustainable design, that’s even better. As well as proving your project’s technical viability, we’d also love to see that it’s commercially viable, too – so include any research you’ve done into manufacturing.
