Annual Awards

Now in their 16th year, the APMP UK Awards celebrate and promote the finest achievements within the Bid and Proposal Management Profession.

Each year, we are blown away by the standard of entries which demonstrate a remarkable level of quality and excellence amongst the organisations, teams and individuals who apply.

This is your opportunity to nominate people or companies you feel are deserving of being recognised as outstanding in the bids and proposal industry. The winners will be announced and presented at the Annual Awards Dinner hosted at the APMP UK Annual Conference at the Hilton London Heathrow Airport Terminal 5 on 9th October 2018.

People wishing to make an award nomination must follow the guidelines provided. Evaluation of nominations will be undertaken in confidence by the Awards Judging Committee chaired by the APMP UK Chapter Chair.

The Awards Team looks forward to showcasing your achievements at our prestigious Black-Tie Awards Dinner on 9th October!
