EAGE has a growing global presence in geoscience and engineering and would like its awards to reflect the breadth and scope of the Association.

We therefore encourage members from all over the world to nominate candidates. By submitting a nomination, you can help to recognise and promote technical and professional achievement from within the membership and throughout the world. We look forward to hearing from you!

The nominations for the 2021 EAGE Awards are now closed!


Submit your nomination

The nomination package consists of three requirements:

1) The nominee's CV and list of publications (if appropriate);

2) A nominating letter that summarises the individual’s achievements and details why (s)he deserves the EAGE Award you have identified. It is particularly important to describe how the candidate’s work has made a significant difference to society, to the Association, or to science;

3) At least one letter of support from technically qualified people who know the nominee and his/her work. Although the minimum is one support letter, nominators are encouraged to include a variety of support letters to illustrate the nominee’s strengths. However, awards are not decided by the number of support letters.

Please download and read the guidelines on preparing a nomination package before to submit the nomination.
