Our team of experts read and review every idea. They need to be able to assess the strength of each idea and consider how well the submission answers the following questions. To help you, we’ve included some guidance of what you will need to consider.

Novel: How novel or original is the idea?

Your answer should include: What existing idea could you be compared to and why is your idea different? Why is your idea innovative?

Doable: How easy is it to achieve the idea?

Think about How do-able, achieveable or feasible is this idea? What are the obstacles; be realistic and what would you need to deliver this.

Value: What benefits (business/social/etc.) would the idea deliver? What is the potential value of this idea?

Consider the wider value whether its financial, political, social or technology etc. And don’t try and sell this to Shell. This isn’t about Shell, this is about the idea.

Relevance: How relevant is the idea to the Food/Energy/Water topic?

Many of the ideas touch more than one of the topics, so please consider this in your answer. The greater the relevance, the greater the impact.

Image

A picture can tell a thousand words, so this year, our reviewers have asked for the image to ‘represent’ your idea. You can be creative as you like, but remember, this could make or break your entry. A diagram or drawing of your idea, well illustrated, may be a lot easier to understand than trying to explain your idea in a few hundred words.
