The YRP awards recognise individuals who have made exceptional contributions to the rail industry, through their outstanding achievements, extraordinary enthusiasm and inspiration to others.
With COVID continuing to impact the nation and our industry, and the recent decision to postpone the YRP 2020 Annual Dinner from October 2020 to April 2021, YRP felt that now more than ever we needed to showcase the amazing talent our industry has and recognise the extraordinary contributions that young professionals make.
We are therefore delighted to announce that our 2020 awards will go virtual! Please join us this year online to celebrate the achievements of young professionals, apprentices, and their mentors, and to hear the winners of these prestigious awards announced.
Please register for the online event here!
38 brilliant industry colleagues have been shortlisted from hundreds of applications. From that list a judging panel of senior rail representatives have chosen 11 exceptional finalists. Both the shortlists and finalists will be announced in the run-up to the awards. Look out on social media for announcements!
Awards to be presented:
• Young Rail Professional of the Year Award
• Young Rail Professional’s Apprentice of the Year Award
• Young Rail Professional’s Mentor of the Year Award
