The Biomimicry Global Design Challenge is an annual competition organized by the Biomimicry Institute. This years challenge asks that contestants use biomimicry to resolve issues around food and agriculture. The deadline for submissions is May 11th, Via Biomimicry.org

The Biomimicry Global Design Challenge is an annual team competition that focuses on addressing critical sustainability issues with nature-inspired solutions. The Challenge is hosted by the Biomimicry Institute, in partnership with the Ray C. Anderson Foundation.

How does it work?
The challenge is open to teams of students and professionals anywhere in the world. Finalists and winners selected by our expert jury are eligible to win prize money as well as assistance in bringing their solution to the global marketplace via an Accelerator program. At the end of the Accelerator one team will be awarded the $100,000 “Ray of Hope” prize, endowed the Ray C. Anderson Foundation.

The Challenge is coordinated each year around a theme, or problem area, for which participating teams are asked to design solutions. Learn more about the current theme by reading the Challenge Brief and browsing the reference collection. To help teams that are new to the practice of biomimicry, the Institute also provides extensive online resources as well as a directory of experts and mentors who are available as advisors.

The Challenge includes two entry categories: one for students only (high school or university) and an open category, which teams of any composition can enter. Judging and awards are category specific and only entrants in the open category are eligible to advance to the Accelerator program. Learn more about eligibility and categories of entry on the Rules and FAQs page.
