2022 Call for nominations (TBA)

A Dynamic Unit has the greatest impact on IFLA’s global work – engaging members, developing strong leadership and identity, delivering high-quality services with a measurable impact, and communicating activities within IFLA and beyond. The Professional Committee (now Professional Council) launched this award in 2018 to recognise the Professional Units who have put the expectations of a Dynamic Unit into practice.

How it works

All IFLA Professional Units – Divisions, Sections, Special Interest Groups, and Review Groups – are eligible to nominate or be nominated for the Award. The IFLA Dynamic Unit and Impact Award winner will be announced during the Closing Session of the IFLA World Library and Information Congress in August.

How to apply

Judging criteria and instructions for applying will be available on a separate Call for nominations webpage.
