Important announcement: APPIES 2020 will be judged online

The health and safety of our community, our staff and attendees are our main priority for all our events. As such, due to the current situation surrounding COVID-19, the judging process for APPIES 2020 will be done entirely online.


In order to facilitate online judging, there will be no physical judging this year. Hence, a 3-5 minute presenter video is required for each submission. The videos can be emailed to [email protected] or [email protected] latest by 23 March 2020 (Monday).

Our 28 judges will each judge 2 – 3 entries each and the organisers of APPIES will ensure there are no conflict of interests involved. The list of winners will be announced in mid-April and the awards ceremony will be held on 14 May 2020 at the Sime Darby Convention Centre.


If you have any concerns or require further information, please contact [email protected] .

We understand that this is a non-conventional way to host the annual APPIES but unusual times calls for innovation and our top priority is the healthy and safety of everyone. To uphold this, we have also been working closely with MERCY Malaysia, world’s leading medical relief NGO in the Global South, on precautionary steps. To find out more, click here.
