NRS Relief will compete against one Business Entry finalist and will pitch its concept to the panel of judges and live audience. There will be two winners in total (one Business entry and one Individual entry). Full list of finalists can be found here.
Entries to the Aid Innovation Challenge will be judged by an expert panel of the most influential people in the humanitarian and development aid sector, including charities and NGOs, designers, engineers and suppliers of aid. The panel of judges is carefully chosen to ensure competition is impartial.
