Entries for New Journalism Prize Invited at NZ Engineering Excellence Awards

Talented media professionals promoting the understanding of engineering will have the chance to compete for a new prize at the New Zealand Engineering Excellence Awards 2006.

Journalists and program makers will have the opportunity to enter to win a cash prize of $5,000 at neat year’s awards, sponsored by several partners including the Institution of Professional Engineers, which feature the very best of New Zealand’s engineering endeavor and showcase a diverse portfolio of finalists.

Entrants for the Award for Excellence in Engineering Journalism 2006 will be judged on their stories from general, non-trade media featuring engineering through positive, fair and accurate writing.
