The Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering is a global prize that celebrates the successes of modern engineering. With QEPrize winners selected from across the world, such an international prize requires a truly international trophy.

Every two years, the Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering trophy is found through the ‘Create the Trophy’ competition. The competition gives young people the opportunity to get involved, testing their design skills using the latest in 3D-design technology. The competition is open to entrants aged 14-24 worldwide.

Trophy designs are created and submitted online using the QEPrize3D app, which is free to download on Apple devices. Last year's winning entry, designed by Samuel Bentley from Wales, was selected from thousands by a panel of expert judges from across the fields of engineering and design. His mountain-inspired trophy was 3D printed and presented to the QEPrize winners at Buckingham Palace in December 2017.
