It’s time once again to flex your professional muscles for the entire world to see!

The Call for Submissions is now open for the 2018 IAP2 Members-At-Large Core Values Awards

IAP2 International Associates and IAP2 Members from locations where the IAP2 Affiliate does not offer an awards program will be eligible to submit to the Member-at-Large Awards program and the winners are eligible to compete for the international prizes.

IAP2 Affiliates offering Core Values Awards programs in 2018 include IAP2 Australasia, IAP2 Canada, and IAP2 USA. Submissions from those locations are not eligible for the Members-At-Large program. Please refer to those Affiliates for submission information.

For the 2018 Core Values Awards, there are three categories for submissions:

  • The Project of the Year award recognizes excellence in the tools, techniques and efforts in public participation within a finite framework.
  • The Organization of the Year award recognizes the application of the core values in all aspects of an organization and how they are embedded into decision-making that features public participation.
  • Research Award - Research is critically important to IAP2 and its members if we are to understand and overcome challenges in everyday public participation and build upon P2 theory and practice. The Research Award acknowledges important contributions to the body of public participation knowledge.

Submissions will be accepted until July 30, 2018.
Entries must be received by email (in either Adobe PDF or MS Word formats)

As always, we are happy to accept entries of the same project in multiple award categories. We do require you to make separate submissions for each category you wish to enter, and that each entry clearly addresses the requirements of the category as outlined in the style guide.
