ICE Wales Cymru arranges awards and competitions to promote the achievements of civil engineers in the region.
Project Awards 2021
Following on from the success of the virtual ICE Wales Cymru Awards 2020 we pleased to announce that we are now in a position to release the Information Pack and entry form for the ICE Wales Cymru 2021 Awards for any projects which are substantially complete as at 31 December 2020. Full information is available in these documents.
The closing date for entries is 17.00 Thursday 25 February 2021 and there will then be a process of shortlisting and evaluation, at this stage due to social distancing regulations we do not know if this will be done virtually or with our judges able to visit the projects in person.
For the same reason we are hopeful that if pandemic restrictions are eased the Awards Ceremony will be held in the President’s Suite of the Principality Stadium on 11 June 2021, hosted by Lucy Owen with an address by ICE President 2021 Rachel Skinner and we recommend that that you book your place early for this iconic venue. As there are no rooms for overnight stays at the venue, we have negotiated with local hotels to hold rooms for us in a block booking and I will be pleased to give you these details at a later date when the event is confirmed and finalised.
We also have contingency plans in place that if we are unable to meet in person a virtual event will be staged now we have the experience of this year’s ceremony to build on.
We are sure that we shall, as always have a very high standard of entries again this year and look forward to seeing the details of each project.

Awards 2020 winners
This year, for the first in its history, ICE Wales Cymru held the Awards Ceremony digitally.
This did not seem to deter any of you from joining the celebrations with over 400 viewings of the video presentation in the first few days!
We were delighted to be joined in the video presentations by outgoing ICE President, Paul Sheffield CBE, 2020 Chair Yvonne Murphy and Chairs Apprentice Jessica Dunn.
Our thanks to all of you who took part in the competition which was a very high standard and in this exceptional year a true testament to the ingenuity and skills of the civil engineering profession.
