New award launched to recognise star quality in acoustics
A new award category has been launched, to recognise emerging talent in the acoustics sector.
The Rising Star accolade is being held as part of the John Connell Awards 2022, held by the Noise Abatement Society.
Sponsored by the ANC and ANV Measurement Systems, the shortlist will be announced on Tuesday 27th September 2022.
Shortlisted entrants will be invited to attend the awards ceremony, taking place on the 19 October, at the Houses of Parliament.
This is the third time the ANC and ANV Measurement Systems have supported The John Connell Awards, with previous accolades centred around the promotion of STEM.
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.
“We are looking for entries from self-motivated individuals who are committed to technical innovation, as well as Equality, Diversity & Inclusivity, and are broadening their knowledge through a planned programme of Continuing Professional Development.
“Successful entrants will work well with others and as part of a team, provide an exceptional level of service that goes above and beyond, and promote sustainability in acoustics.”
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.
The submission deadline is 16 September 2022. To find out more please click here.
