Are you a student or recent graduate engineer?

Can you make IT speak for you and your ideas?

. The Challenge

Once again Oasys, New Civil Engineer and our sponsors challenge young engineers and architects to demonstrate how computers can be used to illustrate the formulation and execution of design.

. The Competitions

The 1999 Oasys Awards comprise three competitions: one specifically for engineers, one for architects and one open to both.

Each competition has two categories: one for students (studying for their first degree) and one for young graduates.

The Engineer's Story

Engineering competitors are invited to submit a panel mounted montage, a computer presentation or a video visualisation.

The entry might illustrate the ideas and concepts behind a piece of engineering design, some novel applications of computer software in engineering or even a software development project.

The Picture

Sometimes a single stunning computer image can be used to great effect to deliver an engineering or architectural message.

The Architect's Story

Similar to the engineer's story, but architectural entries are likely to draw more heavily on visual images and less on analytical concepts.

. What the judges are looking for

Judges will want to see effective use of computer technology, a clear message to the viewer, and (for the Stories) a clear exposition of the design process.

. The prizes

Oasys, New Civil Engineer and sister title The Architects' Journal have teamed up with Autodesk, Excitech Computers and Anders Glaser Wills to offer prizes to the value of £30,000.

The overall winner will receive £2,000, including £1,500 from Anders Glaser Wills, while the five remaining category winners will all get £500.

First and second prize-winning graduates and first prize-winning students in each category will also receive software from Autodesk, as will their college/university. Autodesk will also award two substantial software prizes for the best overall entry from an architectural and engineering student respectively.

The Excitech Prize, of £1,500 of computer equipment and/or software, will be awarded to the university/college or firm attended by the overall winner.
