How to enter

The FinTech and RegTech Global Awards 2018 are free to enter and are open to all central banks, regulators, supervisors and commercial firms regardless of size, location or ownership. 

An organisation may enter as many awards categories as they wish, as long as they genuinely believe they meet the criteria for said award (see Categories). The awards are divided into two streams: 

  • official sector (8 awards) – open to central banks, regulators and supervisors and government bodies only.

  • practitioner (15 awards) – open to all commercial entities.

However, the awards are not limited; an official sector institution may nominate a commercial firm for a practitioner award and vice versa. The judging panel will consider all entries for each award category.
 

General entry information:

  • Entry to the FinTech & RegTech Global Awards 2018 is free and is online only.

  • Select an award on the award categories and criteria page that you wish to enter. 

  • Each entry must be completed in a separate online entry form. If you are entering more than one award category, you will need to complete one online form for each award.

  • The word count for each entry form is restricted to 500 words. Please do not attempt to attach pdfs or other files to your entry - the entry template will not allow you to do this.

  • All company/product details and names of reference clients are strictly confidential.

  • Please note the quality of your entry (reference clients, general information, lay-out etc.) has a bearing on the outcome of each category. Looking at other Central Banking Awards, it is clear some entrants go to great lengths to provide transparency with regard to their products and the company in general. These entries stand a greater chance of success than those consisting of a "cut-and-paste-job" from the company website or annual report.

  • Please note that we will only contact reference clients in the event we require additional information for the purpose of deciding a "dead heat" between potential award category winners. We will, as a matter of courtesy, contact entrants directly to let them know that we will be speaking to their reference clients.
     

To enter you need:

  • A 500-word Statement explaining why the organisation should win the award.

  • Details of three client references (market participant awards only).

  • Details of one contact person within the organisation.
