In addition to our Project Awards, a number of individual awards are presented to individuals who have demonstrated exceptional skill and expertise or made an exceptional contribution to the profession.
The Ben Barr Award is 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 is presented to an engineer who has demonstrated exceptional qualities during their review. This might be in their use of engineering principles, knowledge of construction, and in the design and construction of temporary or permanent works.
There are normally 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.
This year there is one Award in the newly qualified engineer category. The winner was announced at the ICE Wales Cymru Awards Virtual Presentation on 1 December 2021.
Winner - Robert Varley
Highly commended - Neil Williams.
This year, ICE Wales Cymru has much pleasure in announcing Luke Cook, MEng (Hons) GMICE Graduate Engineer at Atkins as winner of its STEMM Ambassador 2021.
Luke has been an active member of ICE graduate and student committee in Swansea, rising to Vice-Chair in 2018 and a registered STEMM Ambassador since 2017. He impressed the judges with his commitment to this role, including organising the ICE Engineering Team Challenge in Swansea where over 70 pupils from seven different primary schools got together with volunteers from local companies.
As regional winner, Luke will now go forward to the UK finals and he is wished all the best as he goes forward. This year the competition in Wales was so close that ICE Wales Cymru decided to award a ‘Highly Commended’ prize for the first time. This title went to Stephani Botusharova, who has been the STEMM co-lead at Jacobs Cardiff office since late 2019. Warm congratulations go to Stephani too.
The winner of the Paterson Prize Award 2021 was Robert Varley
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 2021 was Robert Varley.

Pitch 200 is an engineering competition with a difference!
Established as part of our bicentenary year in 2018, Pitch 200 shows how civil engineers transform lives and by doing so, encourage the next generation into the profession.
Pitch 200 draws on engineers’ creativity to demonstrate an aspect of civil engineering to a public audience – and you only have 200 seconds to do it.
Members at every level have the opportunity to submit a presentation in the weirdest, wackiest and most unconventional way using anything at their disposal to explain their chosen idea.
Entering Pitch 200 gives you a great chance to:
Due to the coronavirus emergency, we've changed the format of the competition this year to keep everyone safe.
To enter, applicants should create a video of no more than 200 seconds using what props or materials they can find around their home. Your pitch can be based on your own work, discipline or another aspect of civil engineering that fascinates you. It can be adapted from project reports, university/employment research papers or something entirely new.
You can record your pitch on a mobile phone or tablet. Alternatively, applications such as PowerPoint include options to record using webcam and audio.
Fill in an application form and send your 200-second video via wetransfer.com (or other filesharing service) to [email protected], presenting your idea, concept or project.
Closing date: 5pm, 30 April 2020.
Watch the 2019 winning pitch for inspiration.
This year’s theme, Doorstep Discoveries, attracted double the number of entries with a very high standard of topics and composition. This led to the need for a shortlist of 21 entries going forward for the public vote, a first for the competition.
The Photographic Competition Winners 2021 are:
We could not let the other entries go un-noticed, such was the high standard.
You can also view these in our special virtual gallery.
Details of next year’s competition will be announced during the start of 2022 and we hope you will all get involved.!
Heritage Award: £25
