Welcome to the APM Project Management Awards

The APM Project Management Awards have been celebrating project management excellence for over 20 years.

The Awards recognise the very best the profession has to offer – from aspiring young project managers to experienced project professionals managing complex projects and programmes both in the UK and overseas.

This year’s awards ceremony, hosted by TV new presenter and journalist Kate Silverton at the London Hilton on 7 November, saw Royal Mail scoop the coveted Project Management Company of the Year, with Heathrow claiming Programme of the Year and the Metropolitan Police, Project of the Year.

Other winners on the night included Spencer Hobbs – Network Rail, Project Professional of the Year, and Joshua Macey – MOD, Defence Equipment & Support Organisation – Young Professional of the Year.


Recognising the very best in the profession, APM’s Awards finalists are all judged to have made a valuable contribution  to all sectors of society.

The finalists and winners attract national publicity and a deserved career boost as a result, both at business and at individual level.
