Ambassadors Endorse the 2023 CLGE Young Surveyors’ Contest
On 27 January 2023 we launched the 11th Edition of our annual CLGE Young Surveyors’ Contest.
We are continuing to widely promote the Contest to reach every aspiring young surveyor and encourage them to take part and complete their application to enter this year’s Contest. Our goal is to engage young surveyors right across Europe and introduce them to CLGE’s activities. To help us get the message out and achieve this goal we are cooperating with previous winners of the Contest who are willing to act as Ambassadors.
We are pleased to introduce our last Ambassador for this year 2023 and she is Gordana Jakovljević – Assistant Professor at the University of Banja Luka, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Gordana participated in the CLGE Young Surveyors’ Contest 2022 in the PhD category and was awarded her prize in Essen (DE) during INTERGEO 2022 as one of 3 best finalists. Her PhD topic was “Multidimensional model of use remote sensing data and geospatial services in water management according to INSPIRE and WFD specification”. But today Gordana convinces every young surveyor to use the next two weeks to take his or her project or thesis and prepare an application for the 2023 Contest. She reminds us all that the deadline for submission is on 1st of August (23.00 CEST time)!
We encourage all eligible candidates to participate in the 2023 Contest and showcase their skills and expertise to the world.
The social media hashtag is #CLGEYoungSurveyorsContest
If you have any concerns about who can apply, which topic is eligible, or any other questions on the Contest then please just drop us a line at [email protected]. We wish all our applicants good luck.
Previous Ambassador Testimonies

Our fourth Ambassador for this year is Rūdolfs Mellēns from Latvia. He was the winner of CLGE Contest in 2018 in the category geodesy and cartography with the topic “The Use of Combined Methods for Precise Topographic Data Acquisition”. In his testimony he expressed gratitude to the Contest for his experience, international contacts and professional development. This was a real boost for his career and it led to the formation of his own company GEO PRO which he is now running. Rūdolfs is convinced that any student should try their hand at this competition.
