Undergraduate and postgraduate students can still submit their design projects (e.g. loudspeaker designs, iPad apps, stomp boxes - any pieces of hardware or software) until April 24th May 1st.

All participants will present their work to Convention attendees and a panel of judges consisting of renowned industry professionals. 

Not only is the event a great opportunity to receive constructive feedback from industry leaders and precious exposure, it's also a superb occasion to network. Students have even been recruited by major companies or sold their designs as a direct result of taking part during previous competitions.

Further, there will be a large pool of prizes (such as MATLAB & MAX 7 licenses, books, audio software & plugins, electronic components, etc.) that will be awarded to the three or four winners in each category.

If you are an upcoming designer and this sounds vaguely exciting to you, we urge you to have a look at the event's official rules & policies, register for the Convention, and submit your documentation in time. We assure you that it will be worth your while.

We're excited to see what you've been working on!
