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. For the first time this year, the competition was open to entrants worldwide.
Entries to this year’s competition were submitted online through a brand new app, which is free to download on all Android and Apple devices. The 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 will be 3D printed and presented to the 2017 QEPrize winners at Buckingham Palace later this year.
