If you’re an inveterate tinkerer (and what amputee isn’t?), there’s finally a way to get rewarded for your ingenious life hacks. The Simply Open Awards will be handing out £25,000 (about $33,000) to people with disabilities who’ve devised simple, affordable adaptations that improve quality of life and lower barriers to inclusion. You can win up to £2,000 in each of five categories (Daily Living, Employment, Social Mobility, Communication, and Education), with the chance to win an all-expenses trip to Vienna next spring to present your idea at the Zero Project Conference.
The contest opened on May 19. To enter, record a two-minute video demonstrating your idea, then upload it to the contest website at simplyopen.io/awards. You can submit your entries through September 2. The winners will be announced on December 2.
