A big, cracking thank you to everyone who visited the Wallace & Gromit's World of Invention exhibition at Scienceworks this year. Over 100,000 visitors tinkered inside the exhibition while it was on display from 19 May to 11 November, and just over 15,000 entries were received in the Cracking Ideas Competition.

Our panel of judges, including a representative from Intellectual Property Australia (IP Australia), has selected the lucky winners from the tremendous pool of wildly creative ideas and contraptions we received as part of the competition.

A big congratulations to you, budding inventors! Your prizes are on their way!
