With QEPrize winners selected from across the world, such an international prize requires a truly international trophy.

Every year, 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 iOS and Android devices. The 2021 winning entry, designed by Hannah Goldsmith from the United Kingdom, was selected from thousands by a panel of expert judges from across the fields of engineering and design. Her design, inspired by the circuit boards on which much of modern engineering is done, will be presented to the QEPrize winners at Buckingham Palace in 2021.

Entries for this year must be submitted on the QEPrize 3D Design Studio app by 1 December - find out more and download the app from the QEPrize website.
