Could you be the next Plant and Civil Engineer Award Winner?

So, how do you enter?

It’s not as complicated as you might think. In fact, our advice as always is: Keep it simple.

The Award categories require short entries stating why you believe your company should win. Your entry will not be judged on presentation, but make sure it is easy for the judges to readily locate the necessary information. Any factual information, such as operational, service, financial or personal details, to back up any claims expressed in your entry should be clearly and concisely laid out.

You don’t have to be a big concern to enter. You could be an individual, a company with less than 10 employees or a large national/international outfit. You will be judged on merit, not size.

The judges are looking for excellence, outstanding qualities or contributions, unrivalled service and innovation, individuals and organisations who have gone the extra mile – so demonstrate all of that in your entry; make it stand out from the rest!

If you have faced any difficulties or obstacles in achieving your goals, make sure you note it on your entry.

If you need to provide any additional information to support your entry, keep it as brief and to the point as possible. Feel free to send customer testimonies to support your entries.

You can also submit supporting corporate material – brochures etc, including photographs of projects, services or products. You can enter any number of categories but bear in mind, it is left to the judges opinion to reallocate any entry which may be more suitable to another category or an additional category.

The judges’ decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into. All entries are private & confidential. The winner will remain confidential until the event.
