The “IPA Right to Play Award” Programme was created to recognise and celebrate projects that utilise innovative and practical ways to implement Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Appropriate projects include activity programs, public awareness campaigns, media products, implemented national or local legislation, design of spaces, and design of play items.

This award was launched at the IPA World Conference in Melbourne, Australia in 1993 and since then awards have been made at every Triennial World Conference. The awards provide an opportunity for winners and nominees to showcase their work to both their community and the world. Nominations are invited from organisations and individuals that represent profit or not for profit organisations.

Award winners will be announced at the Gala Dinner of the 20th Triennial IPA World Conference hosted in Calgary, September 2017 and featured on the IPA World website.
