      Ignite: The Diabetes Ideas Challengeinvites designers around the globe to imagine new ways for injectable medications to be administered in the future. Designs should advance the technology and design of the insulin delivery device, while maintaining key factors including ease of use and aesthetic appeal.

      The Ignite Challenge closes for submissions on May 10, 2013. Submitting a concept sketch is simple, and takes just a few minutes. Ten winning submissions will receive $5,000 each, and will have the potential to broadly impact the diabetes community.

      Concept Criteria

      Accessibility - Usable by a broad population, including the young or old, people with strong or weak hands, or others with impaired hand use or vision.
      Appropriateness - Easy to integrate into daily life, while being robust and of high-quality. Device should be portable and aesthetically pleasing in terms of form. It has to be recognizable as an injection device, while not appearing overtly medical.
      Functionality - Meets functional requirements as a medical tool. Devices should enable accuracy, functionality for extended periods without electricity, and ability to store more than one dose per disposable device.
