Central Banking Awards 2022 - Entries deadline extended until December 3rd.

Recognising excellence in the central banking community

The workload of central bankers was intense during the past year, with officials striving to address both policy and operational challenges in the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic. At the same time, central banks have continued work on vital initiatives, such as strategic reviews and transformation programmes, as well as on efforts to address climate-related and technological challenges, often in the face of tight budget constraints.

Much of this vital work carried out by public policymakers and by their key partners (including advisory firms, banknotes service providers, financial institutions, market infrastructure providers and technology companies) assisting them, is not recognised. The Central Banking Awards were set up to redress the balance – to highlight the outstanding performance and achievements of individuals and organisations within the entire central banking community.

The awards recognise:

  • Extraordinary examples of public service
  • Pioneering activities in the central banking community
  • Best practice in policy, governance, economics, digitalisation, infrastructure and management
  • Innovative and best practice in the provision of operational, technological, financial and advisory services

The names of the Award winners and an article detailing their winning entry will be published in March 2022, with winners recognised during a Virtual Awards Presentation at Central Banking Summer Meetings in June 2022.
