Papers have to be expertly presented and discussed, as well as be innovative and well written.
It's an excellent chance to practice your writing and presentation skills – perfect preparation for a viva or Professional Review. It'll also raise your profile, help promote your university or employer, and give you the opportunity to have your paper published. Competitors can also win money - £250 in most regions - and there's another cash prize and the the prestigious Institution Medal for the overall winner.
Competition heats take place across ICE's regions and the winning papers are short-listed by the international judging panel. Three top finalists are then invited to present their papers at the international final.
Graduate members can adapt papers from professional development or Professional Review reports.
Student members can adapt a university project or thesis which should preferably be based on your own work.
