How to enter

The American Financial Technology Awards 2018 are free to enter and are open to all buy-side and sell-side firms and third-party technology vendors regardless of their size, location or ownership. Organizations may enter as many categories as they wish, as long as they genuinely believe they meet the criteria listed alongside the categories (see Award Categories). The judging panel will consider all entries in each category.

General entry information:

  • Entry to the American Financial Technology Awards is free and is online only.
     
  • Select a category on the category page that you wish to enter, but please bear in mind that only buy-side and sell-side firms (end-users) may enter the end-user categories.
      
  • Each entry must be completed in a separate online entry form. If you are entering multiple products and categories, you will need to complete the requisite number of online entry forms.
     
  • The body copy word count for each entry 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 information included in entries is are strictly confidential.
     
  • Please note that the quality of your entry (topicality, general information, lay-out etc.) has a bearing on the outcome of each category. Some entrants go to great lengths to provide the judging panel with as much transparency as possible regarding 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.
