The winning entry will receive £30,000 of research and development expertise from a team of invention specialists and second prize will receive £10,000.

CEO Nigel Clarke said: “We know from our own experiences that practical help and support can often be more valuable to an early stage inventor than cash, so we decided the prize should be made up of R&D and manufacturing services to ensure we deliver a tangible benefit to the winner.”

Entries will be judged by TV presenter Jon Bentley of Gadget Show fame. He said: “I’m excited to help judge an award that fosters innovation and harnesses creativity to generate ground-breaking visionary products.”
