IABSE Awards Trophy Design Contest


With the new IABSE Awards being launched this year we need a new trophy, so we are asking the whole IABSE membership for design ideas. Judging will be by the Awards Committee and if we like your idea we will work with you to get it made and it will become the IABSE Awards trophy for the foreseeable future.


The trophy must:

  1. be easy to manufacture, durable and affordable
  2. be easy to hold in your hand and stand on a surface
  3. include the words "IABSE Awards"
  4. reflect something of the essence of engineering structures but not be recognisable as a particular structure

Please submit your idea on no more than two A4 pages to awards@iabse.org to arrive before 1st September 2021. There is no need for anonymity and competitors may submit up to two separate entries. The winning design will be published in SEI.
