This year, the competition took place on Friday 13th February at Blackwood’s brand new tech-care inspired office at Dundee Street, Edinburgh, with competitors located as far away as America pitching via Skype to land the top prize.

Volunteer judges from various care, private and public sector organisations provided contestants with direct feedback on the day and critique over the live stream feed.

Designs from across the globe were presented in person and over the internet to a panel of judges, with Kirubin Pillay taking home the coveted top prize.
