The Glossop Award is made annually to a practising engineering geologist under 30 years old. Candidates will be fellows of the Geological Society who are training to become, or are already, chartered geologists.
Last year's winner was Andrew Mills of Halcrow, who presented his paper Novel approaches to mitigation of peat slide risk, an example from Channerwick, Shetland, at the Engineering Geology Forum in November 2005 .
This year's winner will present their paper at the 10th IAEG conference in Nottingham in September (see box on this page). To enter, submit a short abstract (500 words) by 30 June to Tracey Radford, EGGS secretary, Atkins, Woodcote Grove, Ashley Road, Epsom, Surrey KT18 5BW.
The abstract should outline a case history demonstrating the entrant's part in an engineering geology project. Shortlisted candidates will be required to present a paper in front of a selection panel at Burlington House at the end of July.
