The Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering is a global prize that celebrates the successes of modern engineering. Such an international prize requires a truly international trophy, capturing the spirit and wonder of engineering around the world.
Every two years, the Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering trophy is found through the ‘Create the Trophy’ competition. The now-traditional competition gives young people the opportunity to get involved, testing their design skills using the latest in 3D-design technology. For the first time this year, the competition is open to entrants from around the world.
Entries will this year also be submitted online through a brand-new app, free to download on all Android and Apple devices. The winning design will be selected by a panel of expert judges from across the fields of engineering and design, before being 3D printed and presented to the 2017 QEPrize winner(s).
In 2013 and 2015, the trophy was presented by Her Majesty The Queen at Buckingham Palace. You can find out more about the previous trophies and this year’s competition by clicking the buttons on the right.
