Poster Competition


NZSOLD Poster Competition 2021

The New Zealand Society on Large Dams (NZSOLD) would like to encourage the sharing of technical knowledge, experience, and research in fields related to our understanding of dams in New Zealand.

The 2021 NZSOLD poster competition is open to all New Zealand-based students and Young Professionals (under 40) who wish to share their work concerning the engineering, operation, management, safety, environment, biology or geology of dams (or water-retaining embankments).

All entries will be featured on the NZSOLD website, and displayed at the NZSOLD symposium in late-2021.  Winners will be acknowledged in the  NZSOLD newsletter, and awards will be presented at the 2021 Symposium.  Award winners will be invited to attend the Symposium to receive their award and will receive complimentary registration as part of their prize.

Entries close September 10th, 2021
