Recognising excellence in information and records management

We're pleased to announce that nominations are now open for the 2019 IRMS Awards!

Each year the IRMS recognises excellence in the field of information management with our prestigious Industry Awards. These highly sought-after awards are presented at a glittering ceremony following our Gala Dinner, the centrepiece of our annual Conference.

It's not only the winners who are rewarded, though - we also highlight and celebrate all the nominees and finalists.

The awards that are open for nomination are:

  • Professional of the Year 
  • Team of the Year 
  • Supplier of the Year 
  • Innovation of the Year 
  • Lifetime Achievement Award 

Nominating someone couldn't be easier if you follow these steps;

Step 1: Make sure the person / body you are nominating is happy to be nominated. Some people don't like the attention and that is absolutely fine, but please ensure you have spoken to them before you start this work. 

Step 2: Write your nomination statement and ensure it is no longer than 1000 words long, ideally in a word document and contains enough evidence to support your nomination. 

Step 3: Send a covering email containing the below to awards@irms, before the deadline of Friday 1st February 2019. Only nominations made to will be considered. Your nomination must contain;

  • which award you are nominating them for
  • the email contact details of the nominee/s
  • a statement on why you are nominating them (no longer than 1000 words)

Step 4: Sit back, enjoy a nice gin (or cuppa), and wait to hear from the Awards Panel. They may be in touch to ask for some more information or any clarifications. We can't tell you if you have won but we do announce the finalists, all of whom are encouraged to attend our Conference and Awards Gala Dinner in May.
