Designers in the US are being offered over $400,000 by its government to improve face masks.

The so-called Mask Innovation Challenge - available to Americans only - aims to solve issues like glasses steaming up, uncomfortable straps and skin irritation.

The competition also wants more scientific evidence on how effective face coverings are in protecting people when social distancing isn't possible.
