Allied Electronics Inc. of Fort Worth and Design News magazine have increased the award money for Gadget Freak of the Year, a contest that the Fort Worth industrial products distributor is sponsoring.

Gadget Freak, a feature in Design News magazine, spotlights reader-created designs submitted to the publication. Each gadget selected for publication competes for a monthly cash prize of $500, with winners competing in Gadget Freak of the Year. Allied’s announcement raises this year’s award money to $6,000 for the top winner, and $2,000 each for two runners up.

Last year's winner, Andrew Morris, designed a device translating a stroke patient's groan into an audible signal to alert on-site aids that assistance is needed.

"We're pleased to increase the amount of the prizes, as we're confident that this will encourage even more inventors to submit potentially life-changing gadgets," said Gabriel Reichman, Allied's customer marketing manager in a news release.

"I'm always amazed by the high level of ingenuity and creativity these inventors demonstrate, and I'm looking forward to being even more impressed this year," Reichman said.

The Gadget Freak contest is an ongoing feature in Design News and is open to anyone.

Allied Electronics, Allied Electronics Inc., a Fort Worth-based trading brand of Electrocomponents plc, distributes industrial automation products, electronic components and electromechanical products with 48 sales offices serving the United States, Mexico, and Canada.
