The Triumph Design Awards is open to 16-18 year old A-level and exceptional GCSE students interested in Design & Engineering. By simply entering a short summary of their Design and Technology coursework, your students can win an exciting opportunity to present their projects to industry experts and win fantastic prizes, including paid work experience at Triumph Motorcycles, a cash prize, a bespoke trophy, factory tours and more. All entrants will have the advantage to use it in their future UCAS applications, CVs and job applications.

Last year’s competition attracted more entrants than ever before, and provided a forum for the students to share their projects and enthusiasm for engineering, design and technology. One of the 2018 finalists said: “An opportunity like the Triumph Design Awards cannot be missed. It’s a completely different experience to A-levels, and I loved every minute of the competition.

The Design Awards Committee consists primarily of young engineers who are passionate about encouraging other young people into a profession they have found so fascinating and fulfilling. Their primary objective by running the competition is to celebrate the work that your students produce and to break down misconceptions about the engineering and design industry. We want show your students that the skills they learn in the classroom can provide them with wonderful opportunities and that their ideas can become a reality, using skills that are valued by businesses worldwide.

Please share with all relevant teaching staff and encourage to register interest online at to receive updates and news on the competition. Entries are made online and will be accepted until 15th May 2019, with invitations sent to finalists by 1st June 2019.

Working within Exam regulations

Following queries from teachers, Triumph have been in conversation with all the awarding organisations regarding entries to competitions, such as their own, to confirm they are working within the regulations. Read more

At no point in the competition do the Triumph Design Awards seek to retain, take ownership of or seek publicity from your student’s work. Should your students wish to bring their coursework or portfolios to the finals, they will be required to take care of their work and take it back with them on the day. Some Awarding Organisations require coursework to be kept secure and untampered before the end of the remarking period. The Triumph Design Awards do not breach any of these requirements, but please check with your specific Awarding Organisation if you have any queries, as the teacher will have a responsibility for the student’s work.

If you have any concerns about you students entering, please get in touch with the Triumph Design Awards committee, who would be happy to discuss these with you and provide further guidance.
