The Allen Neyland Memorial Award is given to an Australian for outstanding achievement associated with tunnelling and underground excavation and construction.
It is presented at the Australian Tunnelling Conference, normally held every three years.
Nominations for the award can be obtained from the membership of AUCTA, by the request of the Chairman. The award shall be made by a decision of the committee of AUCTA. Non-membership of the association does not preclude nomination.
The trophy consists of a metal enamel plaque, symbolic of the achievements of Allen Neyland, mounted on a core of Victorian rock.
