Invention contest for licensed Locksmiths and Security Professionals offers $11,000 or profit-sharing prize
Global Security Experts announced an update to its innovative security invention contest: applicants must be licensed locksmiths or security professionals, and the grand-prize winner will be able to choose between an $11,000 prize and an exciting profit-sharing option.
Locksmiths and security professionals are now invited to submit innovative security-related inventions or development concepts to the Global Security Experts Inventor's Contest. There are now three requirements for submissions: applicants must be licensed locksmiths or security professionals, all invention and concept submissions must be related to home security, and the inventions or concepts must retail for $99 or less.
"We're looking for the next best home security product or concept that will really make a difference by making homes safer, and there's no better place to look than to professional locksmiths and security professionals," Frankel said. "It's important to me that the contest submissions are realistic and feasible, and no one knows how to keep homes secure more than locksmiths and security professionals."
Invention submissions can be either physical security or electronic security products, like deadbolts, door reinforcement systems, surveillance cameras, and lighting systems. Entries can be in the form of refined concept drawings, concept descriptions, or photos or descriptions of actual prototypes already in the works.
The deadline for entry submission is December 31, 2013.
Entries must be submitted electronically to Mr. Jordan Frankel at [email protected]
