The Banking Technology Awards 2015
Details of the Banking Technology Awards 2015 will be announced shortly. For any enquiries please email email@example.com
Over the past few years the Banking Technology Awards have changed in many ways: in response to the enormous interest the awards generated from around the globe, we decided to remove the geographical restrictions of previous years and welcome entries regardless of location – one of last year’s winning entries was based in the Solomon Islands in the Pacific Ocean.
We also changed venue last year, and combined the evening awards dinner with our Banking Technology Forum conference, centring around our 30th anniversary themes.
This year, the Forum will be a separate event, to be held in London on 23 June, a separation that will allow us to return to a venue that has been a favourite for many years, the Grand Connaught Rooms in central London.
As ever, we will be tweaking the awards categories for the judged awards for financial institutions to reflect changes in the structure of the industry, the issues everyone is facing and the rapid changes in technology that are happening, but many of the regular hotly-contested categories will still be there.
A similar refresh will be given to the Readers’ Choice Awards to ensure that they remain as relevant as ever in terms of the categories and the areas that are of most relevance as the market continues is rapid evolution
The submission process for entries will start in late May – but don’t rush too much: they will be open till late summer. Don’t leave it till the last minute either– the volume of entries last year and the number of enquiries we already have about the 2015 awards suggests we are going to have to be stricter than before about late entries.
Entries can be submitted via our website, so check back in the next few weeks
Good luck to everyone.
Banking Technology Awards 2014 - the winners
At a gala event in London last night, industry luminaries gathered for an evening of entertainment and excitement as the winners of the 2014 Banking Technology Awards and Readers’ Choice Awards were announced.
This year’s winners came from far and wide – a winning entry from ANZ was based in Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Vanuatu and the Solomon Islands, which unfortunately meant that they could not attend to collect their award in person. Other winners came from Africa, Brazil, Lebanon and the Turkish banks had a particularly strong showing.
Effervescent comedienne Lucy Porter literary literally had the whole audience on their feet as she led a round of games to raise money for London’s Air Ambulance before entertaining them with her own hilarious brand of stand-up comedy and presenting the awards with Banking Technology editor David Bannister.
