NOMINATIONS ARE being sought for the ICE's top four medals and for the four prestige Inter-Institution Awards.
The special awards panel, chaired by past president Tony Ridley and including past president David Green, is keen that civil engineers are conscious of the importance of the special awards in promoting the profession and giving recognition to those who have contributed most.
ICE's awards are the Gold Medal, the Garth Watson Medal, the Brunel Medal and the Edmund Hambly Medal.
The Inter-Institutional Awards are the James Alfred Ewing Medal, the MacRobert Award, the Royal Society Mullard Award and the Esso Energy Award. There is a keen element of competition between engineering disciplines for the Inter-Institutional awards and the special awards panel is anxious that ICE should do well.
Nominations for the ICE awards must be lodged with Paul Taylor at Great George Street by 24 April (tel: (0171) 665 2064). There is more time to prepare citations for the Inter-Institutional awards, nominations must be with Taylor by 2 November.
