What are we looking for in the 2018 Central Banking Awards Winners?
The Award categories are divided into two groups: central banks and market practitioners. Entering is not restricted: a market practitioner may enter a central bank for a central bank award and vice versa.
Entries should describe why the entity/person should win an award for activities during the period September 2016 to September 2017 (with the exception of the lifetime achievement award).
For central bank awards, entries can describe activities, policies and initiatives that have improved the effectiveness of the institution and furthered its public policy goals.
Entries for market practitioner categories can describe case studies, deals and innovations completed. For example, successful entries have outlined a client's goal and described how this was achieved, the benefits it offered the official institution client and the next steps.
Please see the individual awards criteria and review the articles on previous winners for further and specific guidance.
We may ask for client references for market practitioner awards for shortlisted awards. This is an important part of the judging process, providing confirmation and feedback.
All information we receive will be treated in the strictest confidence, and we are happy to sign confidentiality agreements.
