Candidates for ICGN Awards are nominated by ICGN members and reviewed by the Awards Committee which then puts forward a recommendation to the ICGN Board. The award is made to the successful recipient at the Annual Conference. 


The application process is now open.

The Awards Committee considers a range of criteria in making its recommendations to the ICGN Board: This includes whether the nominee:

  • Is recognized to have a material period of achievement in corporate governance;
  • Has markedly improved the state of corporate governance in one or more jurisdictions;
  • Has produced, or has the potential to produce, an important, positive impact on one or more economies;
  • Has overcome difficult and challenging obstacles, requiring courage, vision and fortitude; and
  • Could benefit from recognition by the ICGN in furthering corporate governance achievement.
