Every year the IED seeks and considers nominations for a number of awards to promote and recognise outstanding achievement in the industry. Nominations for most of the awards are invited from the membership annually, and recipients are chosen by Council and their delegates on the strength of the nominations against stated criteria of each award. If you would like to make a nomination for any of the awards, please submit details including the name of the nominee and up to four paragraphs explaining why they have been nominated to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for nominations is 31 December each year. The current list of awards includes the following listed on this page - those that are not open to public nomination are marked.
