Autodesk is sponsoring the 2nd annual Excellence in Infrastructure Competition, entries due by June 28. More than $10,000 in prizes will be awarded. Autodesk indicates the competition is open to everyone planning, designing, building and managing infrastructure projects, 21 years and older, to highlight the best projects done in 2012/2013, although I suspect some countries may be excluded from this competition. One that comes to mind is Cuba.
Autodesk is looking for the best usage of Autodesk technology to plan, design, build or manage Civil Infrastructure projects. Project types may include Transportation (roads and highways, rail, airports, bridges, etc.), Land development (commercial sites, subdivisions, public parks and recreation…), Water (distribution, water resources, dams and levees, wastewater), Energy (electric and gas distribution, electric transmission and substation design) and Urban planning.
Autodesk is also looking for visualization of infrastructure projects. So even if you only used Autodesk technology for the visualization of the project such as - design concepts for stakeholder reviews (Autodesk InfraWorks); constructability reviews and scheduling ( Autodesk Navisworks); or creating near photorealistic renderings (Autodesk 3ds Max) – they want those submissions too!
