2020 Project Management Achievement Awards winners revealed

Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM)

The Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM) is pleased to announce the winners of this year’s 2020 Project Management Achievement Awards (PMAAs).

In its 20th year, the PMAAs exist to recognise, honour, and promote outstanding achievement in program and project delivery.

With a revised submission criteria and new award categories, this year we received one of the highest number of entrants since the inception of the awards in 2000.

Elizabeth Foley, CEO of AIPM, said “the calibre of entrants this year was truly exceptional. I would like to recognise and congratulate all of the winners of this year’s awards and the hard work of the professionals who drove these projects forward and delivered them to such a high standard.”

Both individual and organisational PMAA winners were announced across 13 categories on Wednesday, 25 November, in our first ever fully virtual event.

“While this year’s event was in contrast to previous years’, it was truly a night to be remembered, where project professionals across Australia connected online to recognise and honour the 2020 winners.”

“After such a challenging year, the awards provided an opportunity to reflect on the year that was and highlight the project successes on both an individual and organisational level. As we look to the new year and economic recovery there has never been a more pertinent time to celebrate project success,” added Foley.
