Premier Farnell plc has launched its international competition Live EDGE (Electronic Design for the Global Environment), now in its second year. The competition provides a forum for engineers and students to design products that are environmentally friendly using electronic components. Examples include products that increase energy efficiency or reduce carbon emissions.

Winners in both the full-time student and the general/open category will receive a cash prize of $25,000 as well as a design support package valued at $25,000 to move their designs towards production. The support package includes the services of an electronic design consultancy to help develop the design to prototype stage, assistance with legal matters and IP registration, some marketing and publicity, and Premier Farnell’s help in securing investment funding. The company will actively market the end product to millions of customers globally through its Web site, catalog, and direct marketing. In addition, up to three entrants in each category will be eligible for “honorable mentions,” each receiving a cash prize of $5,000.
