You could be the next Be Inspired Award winner!  Just prepare your submission to align with what judges are looking for.

1. Prepare Your Submission

2. Align Your Project With What Judges Want
Judges are looking for projects that:

  • Provide quantitative, measurable, numeric data (where applicable)
  • Exhibit a sustainable way forward, both economically and environmentally
  • Demonstrate innovative use of technology to meet project goals
  • Overcome challenges, no matter how big or small the scale of the project
  • Leverage information modeling to create truly integrated projects, which in
    turn deliver intelligent infrastructure

3. Develop a Detailed Project Abstract
Judges place a
strong emphasis on the written portion of a Be Inspired submission. The abstract is the one and only opportunity to showcase the breadth and depth of your project. Be sure your submission stands out from the rest by:

  • Developing a detailed and concise abstract in 1,000 words or less
  • Defining the project goal and how it was achieved
  • Explaining how obstacles and challenges were overcome
  • Providing examples of benefits and time/money saved by utilizing Bentley
    products and services
  • Supplying quantitative, measurable, and numeric data
  • Including all aspects of a project (don’t focus on one silo)

4. Collect Supporting Images, Files, Animations

Supporting images and files assist judges in visualizing a project and are required for your project submission. Be sure to submit:

  • A minimum of three high-resolution (300 dpi) images
  • Additional files that may help judges envision the project:
    • DGN or DWG project files with all references
    • 3D and 2D PDF files
    • Video and movie clips
  • Acceptable file formats include TIFF, JPEG, EPS, DGN, DWG, DXF, AVI, MOV,
    WMV, FLV, or SWF

Review the file specifications for more information on required files, formats, and how to submit.

IMPORTANT: Disqualification will occur if no images are received.
