Awards are organised in cooperation with local IPMA Member Associations. Winners of local Awards progress to the global level. Applications are judged on the basis of standardised criteria. Project Excellence Award recognises projects as examples of excellent project management. Projects compete within similar categories and are assessed individually based on an Application Report and Site Visit. Applicants receive a detailed Feedback Report which indicates strengths and potential areas of improvement in accordance with the IPMA Project Excellence Model. Research Award recognises individuals and research contributing to the development of the project management field. Researchers may come from disciplines other than project management but must contribute to the development of project or programme management.
