This year’s awards features two new categories - Fairness, Inclusion and Respect Champion and Volunteer of the Year. These are to recognise the many ways in which ICE London members are demonstrating professionalism and are having a positive impact in the industry.

The judging panel, chaired by ICE London Director Jonathan Baggs AMICE, will now carefully consider each entry against the award criteria to determine who has gone above and beyond in this challenging year.

Jonathan Baggs said “Congratulations to all the finalists, it is always inspiring to see what our members have been involved in. This year, their passion, resilience and innovation has really shone through to connect and deliver beyond the usual means and to reach out to a wider audience”.

The winners will be presented by Rachel Skinner, as part of her virtual President’s Visit on Wednesday 19 May.
