Recognizing the Best of the Best in Project Management

Honor project management excellence and earn worldwide professional recognition and esteem by nominating professionals, organizations, scholars, authors and continuing professional education providers for the project management profession’s most prestigious and globally recognized achievements. The PMI Awards could highlight you or someone you know—the true leaders of the profession who are changing the world project by project, while serving as examples of success for the next generation of project managers to follow.  

Beginning with a single award in 1974, the program now offers a wide variety of accolades. In addition to the prestigious PMI Project of the Year and PMI PMO of the Year awards, PMI also honors individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the project management profession or to PMI. Other awards recognize those who have made sustained and significant contributions through research or literature, while still others acknowledge the outstanding contributions of volunteers.
