Oasys Awards


Yes - it's Oasys Awards time again. Oasys, New Civil Engineer and sponsors Anders Glaser Wills and Excitech are challenging all young engineers and architects to demonstrate how computers can be used to illustrate the formulation and execution of design.

Imagine you are a project engineer explaining to a contractor how your design works. Or you are an architect, presenting your concept to your client. What would be the most illuminating way to explain your ideas using computers? If you can come up with a great idea, you are in with a chance of winning £3,000.

The Oasys Awards 2000 is three competitions: one specifically for engineers, one for architects and one open to both. Each competition has a category for students (studying for their first degree) and one for young graduates.

The Engineer's Story competition invites engineering competitors to submit a panel-mounted montage, a computer presentation based on Microsoft Powerpoint or Novell Presentations, or a VHS 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 Architect's Story competition is similar, but architectural entries are likely to draw more heavily on visual images and less on analytical concepts.

The Picture competition, open to engineers and architects alike, is seeking the best single computer image used to stunning effect to deliver an engineering or architectural message.

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.

Interested? Then an entry form and set of rules are available from Melanie Palmer, Oasys, 13 Fitzroy Street,London, W1P 6BQ. Tel: (020) 7465 3302. Fax: (020) 7465 3720.

All entry forms must be in by 7 July, with entries to be submitted by 23 August.
