ACENZ offers several awards, which fall under one of two categories: Project awards or People awards. With the exception of our student award, all others are only available to ACENZ Members for entry. If you are unsure if you are within Membership, take a look at our Member Directory to see if your company is an ACENZ Member.

You can find photos of past events, awards, and conferences on our Facebook Page or our Flickr Page.


Project Awards

Our project awards are officially known as the INNOVATE Awards. They recognise excellence in both the consulting relationship and project outcomes. You can learn more about the INNOVATE Awards here.

Within the INNOVATE Awards, there is an opportunity for select projects to be considered for a Community Award. This is not something that one can enter, but can only be awarded by a consensus from the judges panel. Learn more about the Community Award and our past winners here.


People Awards

Our people awards are also celebrated along with the project awards in one night, at the Awards of Excellence Gala Dinner. The people awards are composed of 3 tracks, all of which you can learn more about and view past winners by clicking on the appropriate hyperlink below:

  • President's Award
  • Student Award (known as the AECOM & ACENZ Best Practical Work Report Award)
  • Young Professional Award (known as the Tonkin & Taylor and ACENZ Future Leader Award)

Should you have any questions about either the Project or People awards, you can reach out to the ACENZ staff.
