The Project Management Achievement Awards (PMAAs) are an annual awards program held by the Australian Institute of Project Management.

Please note that submitting an Expression of Interest (EOI) for the PMAAs is mandatory for all submissions and you can submit your EOI on this page.

The aim of the PMAA is to recognise honour and promote outstanding achievements in program and project management. Reasons to enter a submission include individual recognition and organisational differentiation.

On this page you will find information on the online submissions process, the 2017 PMAA Submission Guidelines and the 2017 Project Management Research Awards Submission Guidelines.

Also available here are templates to help get your submission started and additional information to assist with your submission and ensuring all items are provided.

How to get started:

  1. Lodge your Expression of Interest (EOI).
  2. Once AIPM contacts you, pay your submission fee in order to access your submission container.
  3. Familiarise yourself with all guidelines.
  4. Upload your submission using the templates provided.
