The 2017 Bendigo Inventor Awards has been overwhelmed by the great many entries received, from across Australia, as well as international entries from countries such as Malaysia, the United States, Papau New Guinea and India.
Entries are now being shortlisted before being submitted to specialist panels from Program Partners KPMG and Engineers Australia, who will provide feedback on commercial viability and technical veracity respectively.
Winners will then be determined by expert judges, with winners being announced on Monday 13th November at The Capital Theatre, Bendigo. This is a free event where inventors will showcase their ideas, and is open for all to attend.
