Water Industry Awards entry deadline extended

The deadline to get your entry in for the Water Industry Awards has been extended until next Friday (24 January).

The event is organised by the experts behind leading business media brand Water & Wastewater Treatment (WWT) and takes place alongside the UK’s only dedicated utilities exhibition, Utility Week Live.

This year sees the return of several popular categories plus the addition of some new ones including Women in Water, Water Resources Initiative of the Year, Net Zero Carbon Initiative of the Year and Skills & Workforce Initiative of the Year. Also returning is the sought after ‘Water company of the year’ category.

WWT content director Alec Peachey said: “We have had a fantastic response from the industry, so would like to give them more time to showcase their achievements and perfect their entries.

“Guidance on what the judges are looking for and the entry criteria can be found on the event website, and the Awards team are always on hand to answer any queries.”

You can also fill in an intention to enter form which can be found here.

The event itself will take place at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole on 20 May 2020.

All entries will be judged by an independent panel of industry experts.
