The APM Project Management Awards 2017 is now open for entries.

The starting flag has been raised and APM is now calling on all sectors of the project profession to submit their greatest projects and the finest project professionals to go up in front of APM’s judging panel.


As APM is now a Chartered body, the stakes are raised and entrants will need to excel in order to walk away with the much sought-after awards.

2017 also welcomes two new categories to the award categories:

This year Project of the Year will be divided into the following sub-categories:

  • IT and Technology Project - Projects driven by technology and communication change
  • Transformation project - Organisational and cultural change projects
  • Engineering, Construction and Infrastructure project - The delivery of physical assets including transport and energy
  • Specialist projects - Recognising projects with unique or unusual characteristics from new and emerging project management sectors

The APM Awards recognises and celebrates the amazing achievements enabled by world-class project management. For both organisations and individuals, entering into the industry’s most prestigious awards gives those involved an opportunity to reflect on their achievements and, if successful, entrants gain the highest level of recognition in front of industry and peers.

Also new to 2017, the APM Awards ceremony will be moving to a new location – Old Billingsgate.  The date to diarise is Monday 20 November 2017.

Full list of categories

Entry to the APM Awards is free, so there is no reason not to put your submission forward. However, make sure you enter before the deadline of Monday 19 June 2017.

At this year’s APM Project Management Conference to be held at the Barbican, London, on 27 April, Neil Fowler, principal manager at Adam Smith International will present on the Tamkeen programme established in opposition-held parts of Syria for which they walked away with “Overseas Development Project of the year” in 2015.

The programme sought to support Syrian communities to build good governance while simultaneously satisfying humanitarian needs. The DFID-funded programme was widely hailed as a success, despite operating in a constantly changing environment. The Tamkeen Al Mubadarat Al Mahalia (Empowering Local Initiatives) project was the first major UK non-humanitarian programme in Syria.
