Water Industry Awards 2018: Enter Now!
The Water Industry Awards, organised by WWT and WET News, are back for the 12th successive year and are now open for entries.
The awards, which celebrate and reward forward thinking and best practice in the water industry, this year boast four new categories: Water Company of the Year, Water Industry Contractor of the Year, Sludge & Resource Recovery Initiative of the Year, and Water Resilience Initiative of the Year.
The deadline for entries is Thursday, December 14th. Entries will be judged by a panel of industry experts and the winners will be announced at a glittering black-tie dinner at The Vox, Birmingham, on May 21st, 2018, the night before the start of Utility Week Live at Birmingham's NEC.
“The Water Industry Awards are an established fixture in the industry’s calendar, celebrating and rewarding outstanding achievement and innovation in the UK water industry,” says WWT Editor James Brockett.
“So if you have a project, initiative or technology that is breaking new ground and exceeds customer expectations − shout about it! We are looking for companies, teams and individuals that go above and beyond the call of duty, consistently delivering excellence.
All companies can enter - large or small - as the awards recognise outstanding innovation and best practice across the industry, no matter the size of the business or the scale of the project, with the winners crowned at a prestigious gala event.
Entries will be judged by our independent panels of industry experts, ready and waiting to be impressed by innovations, ground-breaking ideas and all-round excellence. Good luck!’
