Details of the selection criteria for the ICAEW Outstanding Achievement Award.

  • The laureate should be a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, although can be nominated by both members and non-members alike;
  • The "outstanding contribution" must be one of distinction whether obviously apparent or not;
  • A contribution could be regarded as being made over a period of years or within a shorter timescale;
  • It would be desirable to achieve geographical diversity;
  • The candidate should preferably be seen to have served the community in the broadest sense. In addition, it is desirable that the Award should be made, over the years, for contributions in different fields of endeavour;
  • A candidate should not be excluded because he or she has not contributed much to the field of accountancy.
