The four categories are academic research or training course; student or young professional paper; trenchless project completed; and new technology.

The latter two categories open to ISTT corporate members only.

Entries must include a 200-word summary, supporting paper and images.

This year the ISTT has introduced the Trenchless Ambassador Award. It is open to active members of an ISTT affiliated society who have contributed to the development of the local society and/or the development of trenchless technology in the region. 

The ISTT has also called for applications for the Fellows Program and nominations for the Lifetime Service Award.

The deadline for entries for all awards is July 30. The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony at Trenchless Middle East in November.
