‘Make it in Great Britain’ is a campaign aiming to transform outdated opinions of modern manufacturing and dispel the myth that Britain “doesn’t make anything anymore”.
The challenge is open to inventors, manufacturers, engineers, designers, businesses of all sizes, young people and the general public. Judges are seeking entries across five categories that represent the breadth and depth of the manufacturing industry, and highlight the innovation and talent in Britain today.
The winning entries from each category will showcase their creations on a weekly basis at the Make it in Great Britain exhibition at the Science Museum in London, which will coincide with the Olympic and Paralympic Games this summer.
Visitors to the six-week exhibition will be invited to vote on their favourite entry. The winners from each weekly vote will feature together in the final week of the exhibit. Categories include:
- Make it…Stronger
- Make it…Smarter;
- Make it…Sustainable;
- Make it…Life changing;
- Make it…Breakthrough (for 16-21 year old entrants only)
The deadline for entries is Thursday 5th April. To find out more and enter, see the Make it in Great Britain website.
