It’s getting closer to Christmas and that means one thing to a writer with a penchant for champagne – award season.

Kicking the season off on the 1st October will be the British Engineering Excellence Awards (or BEEAs for short). These will be hosted by Findlay Publications at the stunning Globe Theatre in London.

See for extra information.

These will be shortly followed by the e-Legacy awards on the 4th November. Run by EPD, the awards will be held in the lavish surrounds of the Kensington Roof Gardens restaurant. At 6,000 square metres, the venue is Europe’s largest roof garden and is even replete with flamingos.

See for information.

On the 1st December, less than a month after the e-Legacy awards, comes Electronics Weekly’s Elektra Awards. Taking place at the Lancaster London Hotel, the event is also doubling up as the publication’s Christmas party.


And, last but not least on the list of awards is the NMI’s annual celebration of engineering excellence. The award entries close on the 5th October.


Over in the US, the award season begins in earnest with EETimes’ ACE awards. Entries for these normally open in December.
