Award Nominations

Award nominations are open to firms that have provided the main consulting engineering services on projects of all types and all sizes. 

Submissions should come from firms or groups of firms that belong to FIDIC Member Associations & Associates, or Affiliates. All submissions should be endorsed by FIDIC Member Associations or Associates based in the country where the project is located or where the firm is based.  

Award nominations should demonstrate: 

  • innovation, quality, and professional excellence

Projects should have been in operation for at least 1 year on the closing date for submissions and should have been completed in the last 5 years. A maximum of 20 entries will be accepted from each country. If more than 20 entries are received from one country, priority will be given to those endorsed by the corresponding FIDIC MA over the ones presented by Associate Members, which in turn will have priority over those presented by Affiliates.

The total number of prizes to be awarded will be at the judges’ discretion. 


The judging team is comprised of the FIDIC Past Presidents, convened by the Immediate Past President. The judges will convene and rank the projects. All projects that are judged to be of particular merit will receive a FIDIC Award.
