We are truly honoured to have so many inspirational people supporting the Make:able Challenge, so a big thank you to all of them!
The Make:able 2023 submissions are in and as always, we have been amazed by the hundreds of 3D printed assistive technology solutions created by students and makers around the world. Today we have the pleasure of introducing you to this year’s judging panel – a diverse group of experts in the fields of design, assistive technology, education and 3D printing. We are truly honoured to have so many inspirational people supporting the Make:able Challenge, so a big thank you to all of them!
Before we introduce our judges, here is an overview of the judging process. *Please note that we have adjusted some of the dates from the brief. However, the winners announcement date remains the same.
• 1st May - 15th May 2023: Team PrintLab will review all submissions and create a finalist shortlist of approximately 5-6 entries per award category in each of the 3 age groups. The finalist shortlist will be announced by email on the 15th May and consist of the entries that excelled the most in the design criteria relating to the award category.
• 15th May - 15th June 2023: The expert panel of judges will be invited to review the finalist submission videos. Each judge will be allocated a specific award category and will cast votes for a 1st and 2nd place. 1st place will receive 2 points and 2nd place will receive 1 point. An online voting platform will be used where judges can view submissions, cast votes and make comments. You can view last year’s judging platform here.
• 15th June – 1st July 2023: Once all judges have cast their votes, they will be counted and a winner will be selected for each category and age group. Winners will be announced by email on the 1st July and soon after, prizes will be delivered!
