  • We ask you to think creatively and to come up with a concept for a product or service. We are looking for ideas that move beyond the ordinary and address real problems in your or someone else’s life.This doesn’t have to be a new project; it could a science fair project or a project you’ve been working on out-of-hours. All we ask is it’s a concept and not yet on the shelves.Finalists and supreme winners from both the secondary schools and young professional categories will be announced at the launch of Western Bay at Work on the 8th August. There are big cash prizes up for grabs for the winners!The judges will assess your entry in the five following areas. The best entries will be strong in all these areas:RESEARCH – What you do to gain a greater understanding of the problem or the opportunity. It’s about searching high and low for the gems of info that can be turned into a great product.SUSTAINABILITY – Doing the right thing for the planet and the people through your product or service. Considering the environment and ensuring you are not causing any harm while the product is being made, used or at the end of its life. Sustainability also considers the economy in that a strong economy can benefit the environment and its people.INNOVATION – Innovation is transforming an idea, product or service and making it better.  This isn’t actually about creating something new (invention). It could be adding a new twist to an old idea. The iPhone wasn’t the first mobile phone but it did innovate the phone market.CREATIVITY – Creativity turns imagination into original ideas. Creativity is often used to describe artistic work but you can approach all problems creatively. Try looking at a problem in a different way or from another person’s perspective. Looking to other places may provide creative inspiration.COMMUNICATION – How you present and explain your great ideas. This could be written, drawn, prototyped or how you talk about it. The best communication is when a complex idea is easy to understand. Think about what is the best way to communicate your idea.
