Requesting Nominations for Most significant futures work 2018

APF Logo

The annual nominations period for the APF’s 2018 Most Significant Futures Works program is underway! This is our opportunity to recognize the outstanding work of our colleagues within and outside of the APF community. It also provides examples of excellent foresight work that we can share with the public or potential clients. We are building an amazing library of great futures works!

We also have reconstituted the Core Committee, which will be working on program improvements going forward. I am so pleased that Jennifer Jarratt and Sam Miller are joining Rowena and me on the committee, and we bid a well-deserved “farewell and get some rest” to Cindy!

Works are nominated in three categories:
• Category 1 Advance the methodology and practice of foresight and futures studies
• Category 2 Analyze a significant future issue
• Category 3 Illuminate the future through literary or artistic works.

The “window” for nominations is works published between January 1, 2016—2018.

Nominating is simple. In a nutshell, you can shoot me an email ( with your nomination, which includes: Title; author; format; date; publisher; category; nominating member; why you think it’s important (no more than 300 words).
To get the ball rolling, I’ve made the first nomination for the 2018 MSFW program. We just recently talked about it on the list: Rene Rohrbeck’s wonderful new study on foresight’s impact on firm performance. Check out the nomination here:
DEADLINE is March 31, 2018….so don’t procrastinate!!!
