ENGins | The Tech News You Want
Your Engineering Inspiration for Sunday 25 October 2020

Competitions offer a brilliant way for you to showcase your work (and possibly be rewarded for it).

To let you know about these opportunities, ENGins is updated with competitions across engineering and the physical sciences.

Among those currently running: a handful of prizes for science writing, including the Levinson Prize and the the Biochemical Society's Science Communication Prize; the COINS Grand Challenge for innovation in the construction industry (with a top prize of $150,000); and the Young Champions of the Earth, which aims to celebrate 18–30 year-old environmentalists.

To stay in the loop, simply adjust your preferences—so that you're delivered content relevant to your field of expertise—and you'll be shown competition updates with the rest of your tailored content. Alternatively, the ENGins Competition Twitter page collates all competitions in one place!

Very best,
