From giant structures to devices too small to be seen, engineers transform the world around them and the lives of people living in it.

For the past four years, create has highlighted Australia’s Most innovative engineers and the inspiring ideas they have brought to life.

From the ocean floor to space, defence to renewable energy, pioneering podcasts to solar-powered sojourns, the engineers we have celebrated have been responsible for transforming the world around us.

In 2020, we are looking to do it again. We want to recognise outstanding engineers who have made noteworthy contributions. Engineers can nominate themselves or be nominated by others.

Nominations are open to all engineers working in Australia and all Australian engineers working overseas.

Entrants do not need to be members of Engineers Australia.

Any technology, project or product mentioned must have been developed, commenced or completed between 28 February 2018 and 28 February 2020.

Engineers who have been included in previous lists can enter again, as long as it is not with the same project for which they were selected.

Engineers can enter in a number of different categories: Building and Construction; Community; Consulting; Electronics and Communication, General Industry; Manufacturing and Automation; Mining, Oil and Gas; Research and Academia; and Utilities.

There is also a Young Engineers category, for which entrants must be 35 or under on 30 June 2020.

If you are concerned about nominating because of confidentiality issues, you can request that proprietary details of your innovation not be published.

Nominations are open now and will close on 19 March 2020, so it is important to start working on your entry now.
