Particularly of note this year – as we celebrate the Elektra’s 20th anniversary – will be the achievements of design engineers from across the industry. Specifically, we are looking for entries for Excellence in Product Design, with two awards split across these categories:

  • Excellence in Product Design Award (Medical)
  • Excellence in Product Design Award (High-Reliability Systems)

Both categories recognise design engineers who have pushed the boundaries of innovation within product development.

To be in with a chance of taking one of the top product design accolades in the industry and adding your name to the impressive list of previous winners (see below), make sure to submit your entry by 28 July.
