The IET Prizes 2010

The IET Prizes 2010

For the best engineering and technology recruitment communications of the year

The deadline for this very special competition is approaching.  A fabulous dinner at Rhodes Twenty Four awaits the winning team, plus a special Ri Fiver, valuable media coverage and kudos.  The winner will be the best item of recruitment communication in the engineering and technology sectors, to be decided by a distinguished panel of judges.  An additional prize will be awarded - The IET International Prize 2009 - to the best entry from outside the United Kingdom, judged by the same criteria. 

The winning agencies will be awarded special Ri Fivers - and the winning UK team (up to five creatives and account handlers) will be given lunch or dinner at Rhodes Twenty Four, the spectacular Gary Rhodes restaurant on the twenty-fourth floor of Tower 42, London's original skyscraper.  The prize winners will also enjoy editorial coverage in Engineering & Technology magazine, and on the IET and Ri5 websites.

The rules are simple: the competition is open to single items of recruitment communication targeting engineers and/or technologists, on any platform, produced and/or published in 2010. A maximum of six entries per agency/consultancy will be allowed (in the case of multi-location organisations, that's six per location).  Entry is free of charge.  Entries for The IET International Prize must have originated and appeared outside the United Kingdom.
