Enter The Cracking Ideas Competition

Cracking ideas competition

As all good inventors know, it's vital to protect your precious ideas by using things like patents, trademarks and copyright.

This year the Cracking Ideas competition is looking for food-related ideas, from kitchen gadgets to foodie gizmos, or indeed a new food or drink idea. As well as finding out how to protect your unique idea you'll learn about things like logos and advertising, and the various other processes that designers and innovators need to consider when they're launching a new product. 

The competition is open until 30th April 2014 and you can enter either indivdually or as part of a team, perhaps through your school or a club you're a member of. There is a whole host of great prizes up for grabs, including animation software, signed books and trophies.
