IET Present Around the World competition

Due to the Global uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, we have reluctantly taken the decision that the Present Around The World competition should be cancelled for 2022.

Present your brilliance to the world

What is it exactly?

A 10-minute presentation which is judged by presentation skills (70 per cent) and its technical content (30 per cent) with five minutes for questions from the judges and audience.

What's involved?

This exciting four-stage process includes:

Stage one

Enter the preliminary round via your local network.

Not near a local network? Don't worry. You can compete via our online heat!

Stage four

Win the regional final and you'll be whisked off to London to compete for the ultimate title at the global final.
