It's a competition that challenges emerging designers to tackle pressing social, environmental and economic issues through design thinking. This year, they saw almost 800 entries, later becoming a shortlist of 70 before the judges made their decisions.

Winners included an innovative digital heritage mapping and storytelling project for children by children; a simple playhouse toy that allows kids to express their creativity and imagination in a whole new way and an invention that uses water sensors to provide live data on available water sources.
