Pitch 200 is an engineering competition with a difference.
As one of the four core national activities for ICE 200, this competition is an opportunity to show the general public how civil engineers transform their lives directly in order to encourage the next generation into the profession.
Different to many of the other ICE competitions, Pitch 200 draws on engineers creativity to demonstrate a particular 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 your chosen idea.
Entering the Pitch 200 gives you a great chance to:
Initial entries are a 60 second video summary of what your full presentation would be, and can be based on your own work, discipline or another aspect on civil engineering that fascinates you. It can be adapted from project reports, university/employment research papers or something entirely new.
Say my name is Isambard and I've been working on this interesting suspension bridge in Bristol. For my video, I could make a model of the bridge showing how it was constructed and the engineering behind it. This video would be 60 seconds long and would be sent with the form below to my local ICE regional team.
Once I'd sent it in, I'd wait to hear if I'd been shortlisted. If I am, I'll get the chance to produce a longer 200 second talk to be presented at the regional Pitch 200 heat. If I win the heat then I will go through to present at the finale at One Great George Street.
The regional winner will be shortlisted for the Pitch 200 Final where the overall ICE Ambassador for 2020 will be awarded.
The East & West Midlands region Pitch 200 is open to all current ICE members who live, work or study in the East or West Midlands region.
To enter, you need to register your intent to join the competition by completing and sending the Pitch 200 Entry Form and 60 second summary video to [email protected].

The Emerging Engineers Award promotes and rewards outstanding communication of civil engineering ideas and research. It offers ICE student, graduate and trainee technician members the opportunity to submit a paper on any civil engineering-related topic in the format of research, a report or essay.
Entering the Emerging Engineers Award (EEA) gives you a great chance to win:
The winner of the regional round of the ICE Emerging Engineers Competition 2019 was Ana Saavedra Justo (Arup).
The Emerging Engineers Award culminates in a national competition. 3 winners from across the UK are selected to take part in the final, held at our headquarters in London.
The selected finalists each present their papers, with the overall winner receiving a cash prize and the prestigious Institution Medal.
