PRIZES WORTH £30,000 are on offer to the winners of the annual Oasys IT awards.
And for the first time, engineers have their own category. Winners of 'The engineer's story' will either use IT to illustrate the ideas and concepts behind a piece of engineering design, or demonstrate a novel application or development of software. Engineers can also enter 'The picture' category, in which they must use a single computer image to deliver 'an engineering message.' Both categories are divided into two competitions for recent graduates and students.
The awards are organised by Oasys and sponsored by Ground Engineering's sister titles New Civil Engineer and The Architect's Journal.
The overall winner will receive £2,000, while the 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.
The Excitech Prize, £1,500 of computer equipment and/or software, will be awarded to the university/college or firm attended by the overall winner.
Those interested in entering should contact Melanie Palmer at Oasys by 30 June. She can be reached at 13 Fitzroy Street, London, W1P 6BQ; tel: 0171 465 3302; fax 0171 465 3720.
