CMYA Schedule

Application Forms

Applications are open from January until March. The application form consists of four different sections: Your Details, Nominators and Personal Statement, Project Details and the Project Report.

Please see our Application Guidelines for further information and tips to help you with this process.

Site Visits

Once the application forms have been reviewed, those who have been selected will receive a site visit by one of our esteemed judges and you will be able to talk through some key aspects of the project. This part of the process takes place in April or May.


If successful in reaching the next stage, you will be invited to London for a formal panel interview in either May or June. You will be able to bring up to three supporters, clients or line managers with you for support.

Finalist Evening

The selected finalists will be invited to attend our Finalist Briefing Evening in London in July. Here you will be able to hear from previous winners and learn what to expect at the Awards Ceremony.

Awards Ceremony

Our spectacular CMYA Awards Ceremony will be held at the JW Marriott Grosvenor House Hotel in London in September.
