Entries to the PFM Awards 2019 Partnership categories are continuing to arrive as the deadline of 15 May approaches, which once again coincides with tomorrow’s World FM Day.

Entry numbers are continuing to match the 2018 level, which saw a rise in applications, much of which was attributed to last year’s celebrations as the event reached its 25th anniversary.

At present, applications can be seen to be spread evenly throughout, including entries for both established and the four new categories introduced for 2019.

Interest is also being shown in the Partners in Training & Development category, which has been adjusted from the 2017 Achievement in Apprenticeships & Skills award.

Following the confirmation of the list of finalists in mid June, the details of each finalist will then be handed to the judging teams for each category, who will make contact to arrange to visit the sites of all finalists.

The judging process is continuing to feature a team of independent judges, many of whom have judged the awards for a number of years, and is designed to deliver the highest levels of integrity.

Their profiles and portrait images can be viewed by clicking on the Judging tab of this website.

Phone calls and emails from those struggling to meet tomorrow’s deadline have also been received and all potential applicants are advised to contact PFM editor Dennis Flower, email dennis.flower@imlgroup.co.uk or call 01732 359990, for further advice on the submission of entries.

Those wishing to submit entries for either Account Director of the Year or Young Leader of the Year categories have until 15 July this year.
