Global Individual Achievement Awards Application Process

See the figure below for important steps to follow in the IPMA Achievement Awards application process. If you are interested in applying for an Achievement Award, download below the Submission Guidelines, gather the required information and complete the Application Form. Also see the time schedule for important dates to remember! All documents can be downloaded from the bottom of this page


Collecting the required evidence and completing the Application Form provides you with a unique opportunity to review and document your own and your team’s performance whilst deriving lessons learnt that you can apply to future initiatives. It also requires you to proactively engage with your project sponsor, client and key stakeholders.

The Application Form requires you to demonstrate, through narratives and documentary evidence, outstanding achievement and/or innovation in project management over a cumulative period of more than two years. The project(s) can be of any complexity, value, location or industry sector as it is the quality of the project management, not the project itself, that is the basis of the judges’ evaluation.

The international basis of the IPMA Achievement Awards allows that awards applicants are permitted to submit evidence in their local language. You may translate any evidence you would like to submit on behalf of yourself or your project in your local language. The maximum number of pages of the submission will then be increased in equal amount to the number of pages of the translation at no penalty to the applicant.
