The Earth Model Award is an International Geoscience Competition Rewarding Excellence in Master's Level Research.

The Earth Model Award (EMA) was established as the Neftex Earth Model Award in 2012, in affiliation with the Geological Society of London, to foster the link between industry and academia by rewarding excellence in Master’s level research.
