Apply now for the 2017 Thiess International Riverprize

This year, we are awarding a AU$200,000 prize for outstanding achievements in sustainable river basin management.

With the world in the midst of a global water crisis, our Thiess International Riverprize, sponsored by the Bert & Vera Thiess Foundation, seeks to recognise and reward excellence in the restoration or protection of freshwater resources.

Any organisation or partnership who has implemented a successful program of activities benefiting a river, lake, wetland or estuary, in any part of the world, is encouraged to apply.

The winner of the Thiess International Riverprize will be announced in front of a global audience of river specialists at the Riverprize Gala Dinner, to be held in conjunction with the 19th International Riversymposium in Brisbane, Australia, on 19 September 2017.

Applications can be made online through the IRF website and stage one of the application must be completed by 24 March.
