Have you recently completed a project or programme with your company that you were especially proud of and would like to share your achievements?

APM Branch Young Project Professional competition is open to Project Managers and Portfolio Managers (aged 30 or below) who have recently completed a project or programme that showcases their project management skills and obtained a successful output (both working as a team, innovative steps and end results)

This competition will provide entrants with a great platform to share their successes with the Project Management community, whilst engaging with other fellow future project managers. 

Finalists will be asked to provide a report on their project, which will be judged by APM Judges and then present to their peers and family members at a special Branch Awards Event.  The winner will then represent their Branch in a Regional Final.
