Award looks to recognise star quality in acoustics

9th August 2023

Entries are now open for an award that recognises emerging talent in the acoustics sector.


The Rising Star accolade is part of the John Connell Awards 2023, held by the Noise Abatement Society.


Sponsored by the ANC and ANV Measurement Systems, the submission deadline is 22 September, and the shortlist will be announced one week later.


Finalists will be invited to attend the awards ceremony, taking place on the 25 October, at the Houses of Parliament.


This is the fourth time the ANC and ANV Measurement Systems have supported The John Connell Awards, with previous accolades centred around the promotion of STEM, as well as the inaugural Rising Star Award held last year.


Graham Parry, President of the ANC, said: “The Rising Star Award is for an individual who has made impressive progress or an outstanding contribution within the first five years of their career within acoustics, either within their own team or the acoustics profession as a whole.


“Entries can be based on factors including the positive impact the individual has made on their organisation and/or the wider industry.


“Activity to enhance Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in acoustics could also be put forward for consideration.”


Entry is open to individuals nominating themselves and entrants should be employed in the acoustics profession, such as consultants, environmental health and protection officers, engineers, technicians, as well as environmental and sustainability professionals.


Entrants should hold some membership of the Institute of Acoustics and should clearly demonstrate why they have been a ‘rising star’ in the industry. Entries should also include an endorsement from a senior manager within their own organisation.
