The best 12 ideas will be taken forward to a live ‘Dragon’s Den’ style pitch where entrants will have the opportunity of a lifetime, presenting their ideas to a panel of leading industry experts and the chance to win the ultimate prize for any gaming enthusiast.

With a prize package worth up to £500,000, the winner will receive a 12 month paid apprenticeship with Gioteck’s development team, plus the opportunity to put their own gaming design concept into mass production, earning royalties from sales as well as a MacBook Pro and CAD software.

As an added bonus, the Gioteck Design Challenge winner will be flown out to Hong Kong then on to China on a fascinating trip to see the manufacturing process of Gioteck products at a major electronics factory.

Andy Green Creative Director at Gioteck comments: “The Gioteck product range is designed by gamers for gamers. We have launched the Design Challenge competition to give gaming enthusiasts an opportunity to showcase their ideas for the future to some of the leading figures in the industry in a bid to drive the industry into unchartered territory’s and take gaming to a whole new level.

“We believe the next pioneering idea will come from a gamer and are looking forward to working alongside one winner to put their vision into production.

“All you need to enter is an idea, and that idea could land you ultimate life-changing gaming prize!”

The whole process will be filmed to create a mini-series for Future TV, currently code named ‘The Apprentices Den’, showcasing the designers and their ideas to the gaming community and beyond.
