Award winners

Thank you to all of those who joined us for yet another successful IET Achievement Awards Ceremony. The first part of the ceremony focused mainly on the IET's Achievement Awards which recognise and celebrate individual excellence in the various fields of Engineering and Technology. The IET's most prestigious award, the Faraday Medal, was previously presented to Professor Sir Michael Pepper at the  IET President's Address on 3 October 2013 as Sir Michael was unable to attend the Awards Ceremony. The winners of the Apprentice and Technician of the Year Awards were announced for the first time at the ceremony. 

Lydia Feasey was announced as the IET Apprentice of the Year  award winner, Andrew Knowles was the recipient of the IET Technician of the Year award and Staff Sergeant David Emmerson was selected from an exemplary shortlist to win the IET Armed Forces Technician of the Year award.

The second part of the ceremony included IET Premium Awards which are for authors of the best papers published in the IET Research Journals and the IET Scholarships which recognise and reward excellence in individuals within the engineering and technology fields.

The ceremony also included the global final of  the "Present around the World" competition, a technical presentation competition for students and young professionals.

Four contestants from across the globe gave a ten minute presentation and the winner and runner up were chosen by the audience (who voted for their favourite) and a panel of judges.

The winner, Christopher Bellamy, who represented the United Kingdom Region received a £1,000 cash prize and the runner-up, Kelsey Kennedy, who represented the Asia Pacific Region received £500.
