The award of prizes will be adjudicated by a panel of judges appointed by the SAIMM, Western Cape Branch, whose decision will be final.

The main consideration for the prize will be the value of the idea (technologically, economically, socially, and environmentally) and its potential to improve sustainability. Credit will be given for the quality, innovation and excellence of the project, design or engineering of the idea. Thus contributions can come from any level of student as long as the abstract, presentation and poster clearly presents the merit dictated by this criteria.

Prizes of 1st R10 000, 2nd R6 000 and 3rd R4 000 will be awarded at the discretion of the Judges.
