The Golden Crown Trophy – 2015 QE Prize Design Winner
The judging panel was chaired by Ian Blatchford, director of the Science Museum who said “We felt that his work illustrates our dependence on engineering and technology, and demonstrates the fact that modern engineering builds on the work of the past. His use of a crown in his design recognizes this as The Queen’s Prize. He has produced a trophy that represents all that the Queen Elizabeth Prize stands for. We look forward to seeing the final trophy being presented to next year’s QEPrize winner”.
The winner of this bespoke award will be announced early next year.
