Member authorities can submit as many entries as they wish. Entries can be submitted in one or more categories. In addition to awards in each category there will be an overall Chair’s Award selected from all the entries.

Member authorities are all encouraged to enter. This is a great way to share with your colleagues some of your authority’s most successful initiatives from 2016.

How to enter

Please complete the attached form to submit each entry and email to ExCoSecretariat@icdppc.org no later than 28 April 2017. Entries are now closed.

The entry form solicits a description of the initiative with links or pictures as appropriate and an explanation as to why it deserves to be recognised with an award. The form also seeks information to be used administratively or to verify eligibility such as contact details, the name of the member authority, the date in 2016 or 2017 of the initiative and the category in which it is entered.

The person submitting the entry agrees to the terms and conditions which include publication of details of the entries.

What happens to the entries?

Details of the entries will be posted on the ICDPPC website for the information of members and the public about the interesting initiatives being taken by member authorities. Selected entries may be featured in the ICDPPC newsletter. The website and newsletter coverage is intended to showcase good ideas and encourage innovation.

Summaries of the entries will be uploaded progressively to the website by the Secretariat as they are received. To see those received so far please go to the following pages:

The entries will be judged by the ICDPPC Chair, or people assisting the Chair, to enable the winning entries to be selected prior to the 39th Conference in Hong Kong. Winners will be formally recognised but there will be no prizes.
