James Dyson Award 

I hope you are doing well and staying safe. I wanted to reach out and introduce myself, my name is Samantha and I’m the North American associate manager of the James Dyson Foundation, the charitable arm of Dyson. Understanding this is an uncertain time, especially for students, I wanted to get in touch and see what the best way to connect with you and your engineering/design students was to discuss the James Dyson Award.


I’ve provided some of the key information below about the award, who can enter and where to go for more information. It would be great if you could pass this along to your students and encourage them to enter. If students have any questions, they are welcome to get in touch with me directly.


What is the James Dyson Award?

The James Dyson Award is an international design award that celebrates, encourages and inspires the next generation of design engineers. The challenge is simple: design something that solves a problem. We’re also excited to announce that in addition to the International winner, the JDA will crown a second winning project, focused on sustainability. 


Who can enter?

It is open to current university students of engineering, product design and industrial design – and those who have graduated in these subjects in the last four years. We'll ask to see official documentation that proves it. The deadline for entries is on Thursday, July 16.  


What can you win?

Students that enter have the opportunity to win $2,500 as a national winner and $35,000 as an international winner, along with a donation of $6,000 to the departments that supported them. New this year! We will offer an additional $35,000 prize for the sustainability award winner, which is the best entry that addresses an environmental issue. The award not only provides an opportunity for students to commercialize their ideas through funding, it also provides an international media platform and exposure which has allowed previous winners such as MarinaTex, a home compostable material designed as an alternative single-use plastic films, to develop into businesses.
