Showcasing the efforts of our members is important and helps recognise their individual expertise and contribution to the profession.
Pitch 200 is an engineering competition with a difference.
As one of the four core national activities for ICE 200, this competition is an opportunity to show the general public how civil engineers transform their lives directly in order to encourage the next generation into the profession.
Different to many of the other ICE competitions, Pitch 200 draws on engineers creativity to demonstrate a particular aspect of civil engineering to a public audience – and you only have 200 seconds to do it.
Members at every level have the opportunity to submit a presentation in the weirdest, wackiest and most unconventional way using anything at their disposal to explain your chosen idea.
Entering the Pitch 200 gives you a great chance to:
Initial entries are a 60 second video summary of what your full presentation would be, and can be based on your own work, discipline or another aspect on civil engineering that fascinates you. It can be adapted from project reports, university/employment research papers or something entirely new.
Say my name is Isambard and I've been working on this interesting suspension bridge in Bristol. For my video, I could make a model of the bridge showing how it was constructed and the engineering behind it. This video would be 60 seconds long and would be sent with the form below to my local ICE regional team.
Once I'd sent it in, I'd wait to hear if I'd been shortlisted. If I am, I'll get the chance to produce a longer 200 second talk to be presented at the regional Pitch 200 heat. If I win the heat then I will go through to present at the finale at One Great George Street.
The regional winner will be shortlisted for the Pitch 200 Final where the overall ICE Ambassador for 2019 will be awarded.
The South West regional Pitch 200, supported by Burges Salmon, is open to all current ICE members who live, work or study in the South West.
To enter, you just need to complete and send the Pitch 200 Entry Form and 60 second summary video to [email protected] by 22 December 2017.
Registration of intent to join the competition by submitting 60 second summary video by 22 December 2017 to the South West Regional Support Team.

The Technician Award celebrates the achievement of ICE technician members. The award goes to the technician who best demonstrates the nine engineering technician attributes in their Professional Review project report.
This year's winner was Kieren Couch, of Cormac Solutions Ltd, for the fantastic standard of his project report submission.
Are you a graduate or student member of ICE? Are you looking for an opportunity to practice your writing and presentation skills? Why not sign up for our Emerging Engineers Award?
The Emerging Engineers Award promotes and rewards outstanding communication of civil engineering ideas and research. It offers ICE student, graduate and trainee technician members the opportunity to submit a paper on any civil engineering-related topic in the format of research, a report or essay.
Entering the Emerging Engineers Award gives you the chance to win a cash prize (1st place £250; 2nd £150; 3rd £100) and to be entered into the national final in London where the prestigious Institution Medal and further cash prizes can be won.
The Award also offers the opportunity to:
Entries should be based on your own work and can be adapted from university/employment research papers, project reports, quarterly employment reports, written exercises or Professional Review reports. Papers can be on any area of engineering design, research or practice but must be expertly presented and discussed, as well as innovative and well written.
AThe regional competition is now open to all ICE graduate and student of ICE who live, work or study in the South West. This area stretches from Penzance northwards to Gloucester, eastwards to Bournemouth and includes Cheltenham, Swindon and also the Channel Islands.
To enter, you need to complete and send the entry form including a synopsis to [email protected] by 5 April 2019.
A shortlist will be invited to produce a full paper by 9 May and to present it and answer questions from a panel of judges at the final which will be held at Exeter City Club on the evening of 16 May.
