The Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering promotes and celebrates the story of modern engineering. It requires a trophy that embodies the spirit of modern engineering and the values of the QEPrize.
Every two years, the designer of the QEPrize trophy is found through a competition called 'Create the Trophy'. Young people with an interest in engineering and design bring their idea for the trophy to life using digital software. The entries are then sifted and a winner is chosen by a panel of experts in engineering and design.
The winning design is 3D-printed and presented to the 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 by clicking the buttons on the right.
