Open to all ICE graduate and student members, the Emerging Engineers Award gives young engineers the chance to practice their writing and presentation skills in preparation for a viva or Professional Review.

It can also help raise your profile, promote your university or employer and give you the opportunity to have your paper published. Prize money of up to £250 is also up for grabs, with cash prizes also awarded to runners-up.

Papers can be on any area of engineering design, research or practice, and should be expertly presented and discussed, as well as be innovative and well written.

Last year's winner of Yorkshire and Humber's regional heat was James Green from Hydrotec Consultants for his paper 'Design refinement of a typical pumping station through physical modelling'. Kimberley Middleton from Story Contracting received second prize for her paper 'Eden Brow railway landslip: reopening the Settle to Carlisle line in time for the Flying Scotsman', and Elaine Robinson from Arup presented her paper 'Surface water drainage design at a coastal location - a case study' to scoop third prize.

To get started, send in your application form and a synopsis of your paper by 1 November. If shortlisted, you will be asked to write up your full paper by 17 November, and prepare your presentation for the regional final in Leeds on 13 December.

We look forward to receiving your entry, good luck!
