To celebrate civil engineering excellence over the past year ICE is calling on its members to nominate their peers and projects for the 2016 ICE Annual Awards.

The Ceremony is an annual highlight of the Institution's calendar and celebrates excellence within civil engineering and technical writing, and the outstanding commitment of the award winners. Last year saw a raft of awards issued to teams and individuals across the UK and further afield.

Winning an ICE Award is a watermark event for a civil engineer or project, providing the winner with not only a medal, but also industry recognition and media coverage.

Four of the medals honour individual achievement and three salute specific projects. The Edmund Hambly Medal celebrates design for sustainable development and was won last year by United Utilities Sludge Balanced Asset Programme. The Chris Binnie Award for sustainable water management was last year awarded to Southern Water for their Universal Water Metering Project. The prestigious Brunel Medal for international excellence in civil engineering went to The Second Penang Bridge in Malaysia and South East Asia in 2015.

ICE will announce the winners at a ceremony in October at One Great George Street. The deadline for submissions is Friday 8 April. You can find out more about the awards, including how to enter by visiting ICE's Awards, Competitions and Scholarships page.
