A number of top industry experts have been officially revealed as the panel of judges for a ‘Dragons Den’ inspired event for aspiring designers, engineers and inventors.

The annual Blackwood Design Awards attract both gifted amateurs and seasoned professionals to showcase innovative designs which aim to change the lives of disabled people.

Now, the fate of all nine shortlisted entries lies in the hands of the confirmed judges, who will select their favourites this Friday at Dundee Contemporary Arts centre. This year, the competition will be made up of two distinct categories – Best New Product and Best New Concept.

Sitting on the panel is a range of well recognised names in the industry including: Gordon Aikman (BEM), a Motor Neurone Disease campaigner as well as a journalist and columnist for the Scottish Sunday Times; and Anne Walker, a Board member at Blackwood.
