An important and integral part of the role of a professional association such as EAGE is to recognize and honour the scientific advances and achievements made by its members. The most practical and realistic means of recognizing effort and achievement by individuals is for them to be nominated by their colleagues i.e. people such as yourselves. EAGE Awards are regarded as highly valuable and prestigious within the geoscientific community. The awards are approved annually by the EAGE Board.
Besides presenting EAGE Awards, each year a number of prizes are presented to deserving individuals. Those prizes are meant to reward the special accomplishments of our members. EAGE prizes cover a wide range of themes and vary from the PhotoContest prize to the Geo Quiz, the Laurie Dake Challenge and the Minus CO2 Challenge prizes.
