Postponement of awards due COVID-19: With regret the 2020 awards are postponed. We look forward to re-opening the awards in March 2021, and announcing the winners at the aes21 Gala Awards Dinner in Brisbane in September.

The AES Awards for Excellence in Evaluation are designed to encourage and recognise outstanding contributions to the theory, practice and use of evaluation. Awards recipients are announced and celebrated at the annual Gala Awards Dinner during the AES International Evaluation Conference usually held in September.

The AES encourages all Award recipients to play an active role in promoting excellence in evaluation. Recipients will be asked to consider ways in which their knowledge and experience may be shared with others, and they may be asked to contribute to articles and other promotional activities.

The awards are the specific responsibility of the Awards and Recognition Working Group.
