The shortlist has been unveiled for the 2020 FIDIC Contracts Awards. The awards, which were launched last year, aim to recognise excellence in the use of FIDIC contract forms for project delivery and showcase examples of good practice through collaboration from across the world.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it was more challenging than usual to attract entries for the awards but, despite this, there is a strong shortlist in three categories - Project of the Year Award, Legal or Professional Services of the Year Award and Trainer of the Year Award.

This year, as a result of the restrictions brought about by the pandemic, the awards ceremony is taking place online, with the winners being announced at a virtual event on Tuesday 1 December 2020 at 4.45pm UK time as part of FIDIC's annual International Contract Users' Conference.
