The criteria for award selection includes the entry’s innovative, ingenious, elegant or novel approach and contribution to the global advancement of Trenchless Technology, environmental protection or social cost reduction, commercial and economic practicability, and impact on ISTT members and a wider audience.

* As of 2018, an additional criterion stipulates that entries for the trenchless project and new machine categories are limited to ISTT members with corporate membership.
