The winners of the Cracking Ideas 2012-13 competition, run by the Intellectual Property Office and Aardman Animations, were awarded their prizes at a ceremony held yesterday.

In this year’s out-of-this-world invention competition, entrants had to come up with a space-related concept and highlight the intellectual property, including patents, designs, trademarks and copyright.

The worthy winners sought off tough competition from over 4,000 entrants and were each presented with an original trophy created by Nick Park’s Aardman Animation studio. They also received an animation software package and a Wallace and Gromit book signed by Nick Park.

The UK winners are:

Age 4-7 category
Amelia Regulski from Caerphilly and her supersonic ‘Space Suit’, built with flame blasting rocket boosters to guarantee safe space travel. With a specially designed helmet complete with Wallace and Gromit style on/off button, Amelia has covered both style and practicality.

Age 8-11 category
Sydney Davis from Bristol who created the IBIB for brilliance in ballet, on earth and in space. The ‘rocket twist tutu’ with miniature swivelling rockets creates effortless spins and twirls, whilst jet propelled ballet pumps ensures speed is not an issue.

Age 12-16 category
Dom Aly and Eddy Backhouse from Bolton who invented the WG1GYRO to propel Wallace and Gromit into space. With specially designed space suits, a roving WG Buggy complete with logos and ‘the super blaster’, Dom and Eddy have created the complete innovation package.
