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 18th year of celebrating the best professional talent in the city and is BPS Birmingham Future’s flagship event.

Having grown remarkably, and with an attendance of around 1000 professionals anticipated in 2018 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

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. The winner will also receive a fully-funded Executive MBA scholarship from Aston Business School worth £20,100.

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