Those submitting entries to the PFM Partnership Awards categories for 2018 now have just one week left to complete these and supply to the PFM office.

With the deadline once again coinciding with this year’s World FM Day, there has been a flood of enquiries on all aspects of entering the 2018 awards.

Interest for this year’s event has been further increased by the announcement that it will celebrate its 25th anniversary on 7 November at the presentation ceremony.

There has been a significant increase in online activity, with potential entrants making full use of this website, launched at last year’s evening of celebration at The Brewery in London.

All relevant information for this year’s categories, a downloadable entry form, how to enter and the details of the judging process are contained within the main sections of this site..

Details are also included for all the deadlines, with 16 May allocated for Partnership category entrants and later deadlines for those entering or providing nominations for the individual categories of Team Leader (for finalists only), Account Director and Young Leader of the Year.

Those wishing to nominate individuals for the Peter Middup Lifetime Achievement in FM Award have until the end of August to provide these, which will then be considered by the independent panel of judges.

The PFM Awards continue to be free to enter and all finalists within the Partnership categories will be visited on site by the judges.

This process, carried out by judges with no financial interest in the awards, is considered to be the best way to ensure the highest levels of integrity are maintained throughout.

Potential entrants are advised to contact dennis.flower@imlgroup.co.uk with any questions.
