Join your peers for a celebration of the hard work, dedication and innovation at play in the water sector

The Water Industry Awards is back for 2024, recognising the achievements of water companies and their partners over the past year. The 2023 awards were our biggest ever, with a new and improved set of categories prompting record entries. We’re looking forward to seeing how projects have progressed and new initiatives launched in the intervening period.

No one is under any illusion about the challenges facing water companies and the pressure on them to deliver a step change in performance. The Water Industry Awards offers an unparallelled opportunity to show how the sector is driving forward and delivering change. This is a story that deserves to be told and we are passionate about providing the platform for companies to do so.

This year our judges will be looking out for projects, teams and individuals that can show they have gone beyond regulatory requirements and found creative solutions to the challenges facing the sector. We will reward entries that can demonstrate real benefits not just for the water network but for customers and the environment.

The Water Industry Awards have a special place in the industry, as they mark both the frontline innovation and the critically important collaboration between water companies and their partners in the supply chain. The awards celebrate the very best practice from the front line of the water sector, and we’re proud to attract a mix of entries from the big companies leading the way to the smallest disruptors breaking into the market.

The awards are particularly recognised for their integrity and the rigour of the judging process. This wouldn’t be possible without the incredible commitment of our judging panel, who give up so much of their time and put such effort into making some very difficult decisions. A huge thank you to all of them for their continued support.

We look forward to reading about the innovation and ambition on show across the water sector and being proud to celebrate your achievements.
