Showcase you

Do you sometimes wish you could see your name in lights? Do you want to impress your boss and have something to make your CV stand out? Do you sometimes wish the spotlight was on you?

Now is your chance to get the recognition you deserve for your work by entering IGEM's Young Persons Paper Competition (YPPC).

Entering the YPPC couldn't be easier and is open to anyone aged 18-35 who works in or alongside the gas industry. You don't need to be an engineer, you just have to be passionate about a gas-related project and willing to shout about it.

Be in with a chance of winning a once-in-a-lifetime trip by entering today.

Jordan Rowbottom, Chair of IGEM's Young Persons Network, said: "Whether you work in pipeline design, marketing, or even if you're still studying, if you're involved in the gas industry in some way this competition will give you the recognition you deserve.

"The gas industry is filled with vibrant, innovative young people and this is their chance to showcase their work. It looks great on your CV and entering is a fantastic way to build your confidence."

"You don't have to be an engineer, you don't even have to be an IGEM member. Previous winners have gone on to get new jobs and promotions off the back of the IGEM YPPC, so it's not an opportunity to be missed."

Entrants will need to deliver a 15 minute presentation at a regional heat, the winners of which will go on to the YPPC Final to battle it out for the top prize. In addition, all the finalists get their papers published in IGEM's respected journal Gi, which is read by 4,000 gas professionals around the world.

Previous entries have included innovative products, knowledge capture projects and marketing campaigns.
