In 2013, the International Project Management Association’s (IPMA) Achievement Awards, through its local Member Associations, will provide opportunities for industry recognition, at both the project and individual level, and for project teams and project managers to celebrate their career achievements. The Awards offer organisations the opportunity to review their project achievements as part of preparing the written submissions and to have their performance compared to similar projects and peers, and garner positive publicity for well-managed, innovative projects. Winners of local category awards progress to the international (IPMA) level and therefore represent the achievements of their fellow (local) project managers on a global arena. Assessment of these Awards is based on standardised assessment criteria that are common to judging at both local and international levels.
Any project having an affiliation with an IPMA Member Association is eligible to enter the Awards. Projects maybe of any size or value, from either the public or private sector and can be located anywhere in the world. Initially Applications are submitted through the local member association’s awards program and must be made in accordance with the global “Submission Guidelines”. (see the table below).
Direct entry to international award judging is permitted only in the pilot year 2013.
- Applicants are assessed on the written submissions against standardized assessment criteria at both local and international levels
