Achievement Awards



aw_achievement award winner 2013


Since 2013 the International Project Management Association’s (IPMA) Achievement Awards, through its local Member Associations, has provided 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.


Take an opportunity for industry recognition, at both the project and individual level. Apply for the Achievement Award in one of the following category:
