The Young Members Committee of the IGS is holding the first ever photo competition solely for young members of the society. The competition seeks the best photos of geosynthetic materials or technologies, taken by a member of 36 years of age or younger.
During a 3-month submission period, ending on the 29th June, the com-petition received over 50 entries from members from all over the world. The standard was very high, showcasing the diverse mix of geosynthetic applications. Thank you to everyone that submitted entries.

• Irene Inan, Immediate Past-Chair of the IGS Young Members Committee
• Chaido (Yuli) Doulala-Rigby, Chair of the IGS UK Chapter
• Chungsik Yoo, Chair of the 11th ICG organising committee
