Could you explain a civil engineering concept or project in just 200 seconds?

That’s the idea behind Pitch 200, a competition to showcase civil engineering to the general public in an interesting and entertaining way.

Are you a civil engineer with a passion for what you do? Have you worked on an exciting project that you're bursting to tell someone about? Have you ever wanted to share your knowledge to a wider audience?

If so, then make sure you apply for Pitch 200, ICE's new competition to find the person who can best demonstrate a civil engineering related concept or project in a 200 second video. Applicants will be invited to make their entries as engaging and dynamic as possible and the use of props is highly encouraged.

For inspiration, see how the finalists in this year's Pitch 180 explained their chosen topics in 180 seconds.

Regional finals and selection of the best in the UK

Applicants will first complete to be selected as champion of their region. Applications will open from mid-November with regional finals taking place from January to June 2018. For further information on Pitch 200 please contact your regional support team.

Once the application window opens, to apply you will need to fill in a form and send a short 1 minute video summary of your concept or project. Entries will then be shortlisted and those that go through will then be asked to make their full 200 second presentation at their regional final, with the winner being decided by a panel of high profile judges.

The winner of each regional final will then compete to be crowned the overall champion at a lavish finale at One Great George Street in November 2018. The audience will be made up of over 200 members of the public. The UK Champion will be offered high profile opportunities to work with the ICE to promote our industry, and become the face of ICE.

This is great opportunity to showcase to the public just how amazing the world of civil engineering is.
