The SME Innovation Award and Young Innovator Award are worth $15,000 each.
The Judges also have the right to Award a High Commendation to other entries in each category considered strong enough to be a winner or a very close runner-up.

Young innovators may be engineers, managers or early-career researchers working in industry, academia or a specialist research institution.
