Whittle Reactionaries Prize

Calling all innovative thinkers...Sir Frank Whittle, and the Powerjet engineers who worked alongside him, were true pioneers. Their revolutionary work will be remembered forever.

The Whittle Reactionaries Prize aims to stimulate innovative solutions to aerospace propulsion problems – to help uncover the engineers who are contributing to the next great leap.

The Prize

The winner will receive a medal and £1500 cash, allthough in exceptional circumstances the prize money may be split between two outstanding projects.

To enter

Papers written for other outlets such as conferences and journals are welcomed for consideration and encouraged.
