The interactive hub of the information world

Calling all new information professionals!

Are you in the first three years of a career in information and records management? Whether you’re a current student or recently qualified, employed or self-employed we want to hear from you… there’s no age limit, and there’s a fantastic prize on offer!

Kindly sponsored by renowned IRM expert Alison North for an eighth year running, the IRMS New Professionals Award recognises the thoughts and observations, insight and expertise of those who have recently joined the profession.

Ours is an increasingly-diverse and rapidly-evolving industry, and it’s easy for those with less experience to feel overawed. This award demonstrates the value the IRMS puts on the fresh perspectives that those who are just starting out in the sector can bring.

And one of the best ways to share and develop that wisdom with like-minded folks is by attending the IRMS Conference – an annual gathering of 400 information professionals in fantastic venues across the country, expertly organised by our partners Revolution Events.

So whatever your line of study or work, and whatever you want to write about – personal experiences, contemporary issues, the state of the profession, or your vision of the future – just submit a written piece of 1500-2000 words to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by 31 December 2016, and you could be the winner of a fully-paid place at #IRMS17 in Glasgow!

Want to book for Conference early? That’s a great idea – discounted Super Early Bird rates are available via until 30 September – and don’t worry, we offer an alternative prize of equivalent cash to spend on your professional development. Not only that, there are prizes for up to 2 runners-up as well.

So get your thinking cap on… if you need some inspiration, why not check out the previous winners’ articles on the IRMS website? Good luck!
