BYPY Awards

Birmingham Young Professional of the Year, or BYPY as it is affectionately known, is a highly prestigious awards ceremony that recognises and rewards the most talented individuals within Birmingham’s business community.

BYPY is now in its 16th year of celebrating the best professional talent in the city and is Birmingham Future’s flagship event.

Having grown remarkably, and with an attendance of around 1000 professionals anticipated in 2016 for a glittering black tie awards ceremony, BYPY is simply the most significant celebration of talent and success on Birmingham’s business calendar.

Candidates compete across six different categories

Award Categories

HR, Recruitment & Training
Marketing & Communications
Property & Construction

The overall winner will be chosen from the winners of these six categories, and take home the prestigious title of Birmingham Young Professional of the Year.

We also recognise our city region’s aspiring talent and honour our inspiring leader,

Aspiring Talent

Aspiring Talent recognises exceptional individuals aged between 16 and 24 who are currently in full-time Higher/Further Education or training and looking to embark upon a professional services career within Birmingham.

Inspiring Leader

The Inspiring Leader award is designed to recognise exemplary figures within the professional community whose effect can be measured by their impact upon others; be it employees, colleagues or clients. Someone who has inspired and mentored the region’s young professionals over the years, who leads change and takes people with them, and who demonstrates a strong commitment to the success of Birmingham Future and the city of Birmingham generally.

Why nominate
