About the Award

The Chapter is proud to recognize and honor the success of our membership. To showcase this, we are planning to host a PMI-VI Project of the Year Award Ceremony at a virtual one hour event on May 20, 2021. 

The PMI-VI Project of the Year Award recognizes member-led projects that best deliver superior performance of project management practices and organizational results. To make this event a success, please consider submitting an application for your latest project. It could lead to your project team taking home the trophy! 

How do I apply? 

The PMI-VI Project of the Year Award is open to all PMI-VI members who have completed a project between January 2020 and April 2021, and is an excellent opportunity to celebrate success and share PM learnings. To apply, a member of the project team with a PMI-VI membership must submit a slide deck that covers the ten sections of the Evaluation Criteria (see bottom of the bage) by April 16th, 2021 to This email address is being protected from spambots.

The Award Ceremony 

Following the application deadline, the slide decks will be evaluated by a panel of three judges with PM expertise using an evaluation handbook that reflects the Evaluation Criteria. The judges will then select up to three finalists to present for 10-minutes at the Project of The Year Award Ceremony, where the winner of the Project of The Year Award trophy will be revealed! All finalists will receive recognition for their accomplishments, and there will even be prizes for the audience. Stay tuned for when event registration opens in April.
