After the success of the 5 first editions of the ITA Tunnelling and Underground Space awards, in Switzerland, Singapore, France, China and USA, the ITA Awards 2020 will take place at the end of the year (exact place and date will be confirmed soon).

By the time being, it is important to continue celebrating success in our industry and this can be done through the ITA Awards. For this edition, some changes are proposed in the categories with notably a category “Overcoming the challenge” for projects which overcame either foreseen or unforeseen extreme challenges during excavation and construction and another one named “Oddities of the Underground” celebrating the creativity, ingenuity, and imagination of the human spirit in its endeavors underground.

Entries for all categories (except Life Time Achievement) are welcomed until June 30th.
