I work in a field where a group of about 20 people all have a different role on a project. When a project wins an award in this field, they typically do not list people individually. How can I put awards like this on my CV?


Same as you would a normal in-line item, only you'd mention at the end that you were a member of a group name. You can also mention role.

  • John Doe Award of Excellence, Annual Competition of Cooking Tasty Foods in Somewhere, AA on 1 Jan 1999, as head chef of Team Mashed Potatoes
  • Let's say you weren't head chef, but rather chief bottle washer (or some other lowly position). Would you still format this in the same way? – apnorton Apr 3 '15 at 2:31

    @anorton You can say "Team Member" if you wish. – Compass Apr 3 '15 at 2:45
  • Should you add your title? Project X award for best box of the year, for Acme Co. Designer 2014. – user32617 Apr 3 '15 at 3:05
  • Yes, but you should mention that you are a designer, so "Acme Co., as a Designer." And I would normally split the year off to where the award is mentioned – Compass Apr 3 '15 at 3:51
