Award Criteria


  • There will be one winner for the Young Project Manager of the Year.

  • The nominee must be under 30 years of age on or before the May 15th 2015 and nominations may be originated by the nominee themselves, or by the nominee’s employer, colleagues, team members or customer. The nominee must be a member of a recognised project management association.

  • PM has made a significant positive difference to the outcome of a project (or a section of a major project) in the year preceding the award application. The success of the project is not a primary criterion; instead the award is for the PM’s capability and contribution to that project.

  • PM’s contribution is recognized and supported by his/her management, customer or end user, and project team.

  • They can be working on any project where their involvement has been greater than six months. 

  • The PM has a demonstrated knowledge and understanding of Project Management theory and preferably holds an internationally recognised project management qualification.




MAPM’s Young Project Manager of the Year Award is to recognise rising talent – those in the early stages of their project management career who are making a difference to their projects, programmes and portfolios, the companies and clients they work with, and the profession more widely. The award is presented to recognise an individual who has exemplified superior performance and outstanding project management methods, skills and their important contributions in business, industry, government, and community or not-for-profit environments.


“Winning the 2014 IPMA Young Project Manager Award is certainly a great recognition for me and my teams. This has not only contributed in elevating my career but has also branded my company with a great honour. The IPMA is the world’s largest professional project management body, so this is recognition on an international scale. I would strongly encourage project management professionals to apply for the award and get internationally recognised.”
