The awards cover personal achievement and published work in a range of materials sectors and applications. Some awards are designed to recognise the achievement of younger people at the start of their career. 

Other awards also recognise contributions in education and major contributions to the Institute's core activity (other than to a local society).

Certain awards can be presented to teams or to organisations as well as individuals. Most awards are open to non-members as well as members of the Institute. Each award has its own specific requirements - go here for more information.

The deadline for nominations is 7th November.
