Showcasing the efforts of our members is important and helps recognise their individual expertise and contribution to the profession.
The ICE Wales Cymru Prize - also known as the Ben Barr Award - is given to an outstanding civil engineer who has just become professionally qualified.
It's open to civil engineers who passed their Professional Review in the year before the award is presented, and were living or working in Wales at the time.
The award goes to an engineer who showed exceptional qualities during their review. This might be their use of engineering principles, knowledge of construction, and in the design and construction of temporary or permanent works.
There are three categories - CEng MICE, IEng MICE and EngTech MICE. Candidates are nominated by their two reviewers and a winner is chosen from the shortlist.
The Ben Barr Award is named after a former chairman of ICE Wales Cymru and is sponsored by Symmons Madge Associates.
The winner of the Ben Barr Award 2016, announced at the ICE Wales Cymru Awards Dinner on Friday 17 June 2016 at the Marriott Hotel, Cardiff is:
Lee Davies CEng MICE, Dawnus, Swansea. Lee's Reviewers were Patricia Fort and Tony Wakeman.
The Paterson Prize is awarded to the candidate who produces the best written exercise in their Professional Review.
It's open to newly qualified candidates living or working in Wales, who sat the review at incorporated or chartered level in the year before the award is presented.
Reviewers nominate candidates who put together a well structured argument in a high standard of clear, concise English. A winner is then chosen from the shortlist.
The award was originally given for the best script in the Management and Public Administration (MPA) exam, which became the Public Sector Management (PSM) examination.
The prize is named after Colonel James Andrew Paterson who gave a donation to ICE for the best essay by a Welsh candidate at Professional Review.
The winner of the Paterson Prize Award 2015, presented at the ICE Wales Cymru Awards Dinner on Friday 1 May 2015 at the Marriott Hotel, Cardiff is Stephen Heaney for his Essay: Discuss the challenges that need to be considered when providing technical improvements in developing countries and the means of ensuring such benefits are preserved.
Stephen was nominated by his Reviewers Guy Rigby and Richard Cook.
The ICE Communications Competition gives young civil engineers the opportunity to develop and show their communications skills. The engineers have to explain and promote the benefits of an engineering scheme proposal at a mock public consultation, and compete for the Wales regional prize of £250. Regional winners then face each other in the National Final for the £500 prize.
Entry forms for the 2016 competition will be available from the ICE Wales Cymru Regional Support Team.
You can find out more on the main Communications Competition page.

ICE Yorkshire & Humber team from Mott MacDonald won the 2016 Graduate and Student Communications Competition with their presentation on the Ballygrand City Arterial Route Upgrade. The chair of the judging panel, ICE Vice President, Zara Lamont, said: “It was a close call between the teams and the deciding factor came down to how well the teams answered the questions from the audience. ICE Yorkshire and Humber team did exceptionally well and answered all the questions in an empathic and professional way.”
The Emerging Engineers Award celebrates the best research, innovation, and presentation skills among graduate and student members. Entrants produce a paper or essay on a topic related to civil engineering.
The competition is an excellent opportunity to improve written communication and verbal presentation skills, and perfect preparation for a viva or Professional Review. The Wales regional winner's prize is £250.
