Nominations must be submitted on the ARMA Awards Nomination Form, which can be downloaded here.  The Nomination Form has been designed to provide the judges with all the information they require to arrive at decisions.  No accompanying or additional material will be accepted. The judges will only evaluate material contained on the nomination form, disregarding any prior knowledge they may have of the nominees.

With the exception of the Carter Award for Outstanding Contribution to Research Management and Administration, only current members of ARMA may be nominated for any of the Awards.   In the case of the Research Management Team of the Year Award, at least one member of the nominated team must be a current member of ARMA.

There does not need to be a formal relationship between nominator(s) and nominee(s).  It is the responsibility of the nominator(s) to secure the agreement of the nominee(s) that their nomination may be submitted.  This is particularly important as it is a condition of nomination that the nominee(s) agree, if shortlisted for an Award, to work with ARMA to develop and publish case studies based on their nomination.

The closing date for receipt of nominations will be 12 noon on Friday 28 April 2017.  No late or incomplete nominations will be accepted.  Nominations must be submitted to Jo Edwards, Chief Operating Officer, ARMA at
