Published 7th June 2022, in Blog, News, News & Updates

The Simply Open Awards is a competition offering individuals with any disability or other specific access needs to demonstrate a solution they have created to better manage access challenges in a way that enhances independence, capability or joy.

The Simply Open Awards require individuals to submit a video up to 2 minutes long, showcasing a solution (no matter how simple it is) they have created that improves daily personal experiences, enhances independence, capability, or joy for themselves or for somebody who has a disability or access barrier.‍

There are 5 awarding categories and 35 cash prizes totalling £25,000. There are also two prizes for community group entries.

At least 30 finalists from the Simply Open Awards will have their solutions submitted into the Global Discovery Awards for a chance to win a trip to the  Zero Project Conference in Vienna in 2023, where you could find yourself presenting your solution to accessibility leaders from around the world.
