Nominations closing for the 2010 PACE Zenith Awards!

Have you thought about entering the 2010 PACE Zenith Awards? Now is your chance to be recognised for your contribution to the process control industry, Sarah Falson writes.

Industry in Australia is optimistic about what the future holds for 2010 and the seventh annual PACE Zenith Awards program will be rewarding those who are taking advantage of the improving climate.

The Zenith Awards was launched by PACE in 2004 to publicly-recognise equipment and software engineers, suppliers, and integrators working in the process control, automation and instrumentation market in Australia and New Zealand.

This year, process control, automation and instrumentation projects across ten different industry sectors will be recognised at a black-tie dinner event in Melbourne on 17 June, 2010.

How do I enter?

The entry process is simple, and free. All you need to do is download an entry form from the PACE Zenith Awards website or email us (addresses below), fill it out, and send it in via email.

You don’t need to spend hours gathering information and writing your entry; the entry process is designed to be simple and you can simply send us any information you already have on-hand (technical overviews, commissioning papers, testing documents, photographs, videos, etc) and our expert judging panel will review your project from there.

The categories are grouped into industries are designed to be quite inclusive. Basically, if you have performed any sort of process control engineering project in any of these industries, be it an instrumentation supply deal, a motors and drives maintenance project, a complete automation overhaul upgrade, or a safety system installation, you are eligible to enter the 2010 PACE Zenith Awards.

The categories are as follows: Automotive & Manufacturing; Chemicals & Petrochemicals; Food & Beverage; Oil, Gas & Hydrocarbons; Metal Products Manufacturing; Mining, Minerals & Exploration; Power & Energy Management; Transport, Power & Infrastructure; and Water & Wastewater.

The deadline for entries is 1 April, so you have around a month to get organised. If you send your entry in early, we can even review it and let you know if we think you need to add any more information.

Why should I enter?

The PACE Zenith Awards is a celebration of Australia and New Zealand’s talent in industrial engineering. There are usually around six finalists in each of ten industrial categories, all of which receive free editorial space in PACE magazine’s May and June issues.

If you’re a supplier, nominating your customer for choosing to use your process control technology in their business is a great way to say ‘thank you’ and to cement a potentially already solid working relationship.

If you’re a plant- or site-owner, becoming a finalist or winner for your plant upgrade or inventive technology installation is a fantastic way to boost staff morale and show-off the high level of Australian and New Zealand industrial know-how.

Zenith Awards winners get further editorial support in the official Zenith Awards Winners issue of PACE in July. Online editorial coverage is also part of the deal.

The Zenith Awards evening in itself is a fabulous celebration of local engineering talent, and also a great way to meet potential new customers and suppliers, make professional contacts, or simply to relax and have a fun evening with your workmates while you congratulate yourselves on a job well-done.

All finalists automatically receive two free tickets to the Zenith Awards evening in June, and extra tickets are available to purchase. Finalists will be contacted mid-April. Good luck!
