BGA Annual conference 2022 - calling for poster submissions for the Young Engineers' Poster Competition. A prize of £100 is awarded.

For many years we have invited students to present their work in the form of posters at the Annual Conference at One Great George Street. Recently we inaugurated a competition for the best poster, for which a prize of £100 is awarded.

We are inviting all Young Geotechnical Engineers to submit pdf posters digitally on any topic of their own work dealing with the engineering behaviour of the ground, whether it be a description of an industrial design or construction project, development of a new piece of equipment, or state-of-the-art research.

Posters will be assessed prior to the Conference and displayed as a rolling presentation during the Conference. The winner will be announced at the Conference and after the event all posters submitted will be available to view on the BGA website.

We encourage as many applicants as possible, as this is a great opportunity for young engineers to showcase their work at this early stage in their careers.

Entry rules are as follows:

  • Entrants should be under 33 years of age on 31st December 2022.
  • Candidates are encouraged to be members of the ICE or BGA.
