Fintech companies of all stripes, shapes and sizes can now seek the recognition they deserve with the launch of FinTech Intel’s inaugural Asia, European and US FinTech Awards.
Set to be held virtually in view of the Covid-19 pandemic and following the success of the UK FinTech Awards in November 2020, the three events dedicated to fintech communities in and serving Asia, Europe and the US will be held on 27 and 28 April 2021.
The entry deadline for each event is 26 February 2021.
In the meantime, follow these simple steps and you’ll produce a submission that our independent panel of judges will find clear, concise and compelling.
Pick your categories: There are lots of categories to choose from. Read the criteria carefully for each and decide which will give you the best opportunity to demonstrate your strengths.
Choose the form of your entry: Make sure every submission is unique for the category that you’re entering. We accept written submissions of between 250 and 1,000 words per category. Written submissions are at their best after several drafts, with input from everyone involved. Remember that your entry needs to stand out from the crowd, so keep it active, free of jargon, and don’t forget to proofread your words before entering. Alternatively, you can enter a video submission. You’ll have a maximum of three minutes to demonstrate why you, your team or business should win the particular category. Videos are easy to digest and revisit, and they allow the judges to put a face to an entry.
Submit your nomination online via the entry form: Entries can only be accepted via the entry form. Fill out all of the required information, and make sure you choose the correct category from the list. The form must be filled out and submitted for every category. The form removes all formatting, so don’t worry about italics, bolding, underlining or hyperlinking, as these won’t make it through our system. Furthermore, no supporting documents and attachments are allowed, so don’t use the attach buttons for CVs, promo videos, PDFs and Word docs—these won’t make it through our system, either. For written submissions, input your 250 to 1,000 words in the ‘Reason Why’ box. For video entries, fill out the form, except the ‘Reason Why’ box, and submit your video via WeTransfer to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Attach your logo: If you make it to the shortlist, we’ll need a high resolution version of your logo for the ceremony and marketing campaigns. We accept the .JPEG, .PNG and .PDF formats, but prefer .EPS wherever possible. If you don’t have this, don’t worry.
Attach nominee’s photo: This is for the individual awards. Colour photos are preferred, and high resolution .JPEG is best.
Sit back and wait for news: That’s it, you’re done! Approximately two weeks following the entry deadline, our judging panel will convene to make their final decisions. We’ll then get in touch with every finalist to give them the good news.
