  • Apply for the PMO India Awards 2022

We invite all PMOs located in India to take part in the 2022 PMO India Awards, an amazing initiative to recognize and promote excellence. The winner of the 2022 INDIA PMO OF THE YEAR AWARD will be nominated to represent India in the 2023 PMO Global Awards, the world’s largest and most prestigious award for PMOs.

To apply for the PMO India Awards, you simply need to take the following steps:

  1. Fill out a one-page application form. This is possible until 15th November.
  2. Our team will make sure that your PMO is eligible. After that, you’ll have at least four weeks to record a short video that describes your PMO according to a simple set of rules available at the award website.
  3. And it’s done! A large international panel of judges comprised of PMO leaders from around the world will then evaluate your PMO. They will give their suggestions and recommendations, which may later be made accessible to you at no cost, thus providing you with access to essential information that will assist your organization in developing its PMO. You will also have access to all of the competitors’ videos, which will help you, your organization, and the whole global PMO community learn and grow from this amazing initiative.
