Recognising excellence in the use of IT in financial services

Now in their 17th year, Banking Technology Awards recognise and reward excellence in the use of IT in financial services worldwide.

Entries for the 2016 awards will be accepted through Friday, 5 August 2016, with the winners announced at our gala dinner on 1 December 2016 at the Tower Hotel in London.

The awards are open to banks and financial institutions worldwide. Vendors may put an entry in on behalf of a bank or financial institution but must have prior approval from them.


For 2016 we have revamped the category listing to reflect the changes and acknowledge the innovation happening across the industry. Some categories have been split to make the criteria clearer, and several new categories have been introduced including Top Digital Innovation, Best use of Cloud Software/Services and Best Data Related Initiative


We are also thrilled to announce an exciting new partnership this year with FemTechLeaders, who are supporting our two individual awards:

  •  The Women in Technology (W.I.T.) Award
  • Tech Leadership Award

The individual awards will showcase the best in leadership, inspiration, vision, execution – and most importantly – collaboration.

The winners will be chosen by the judging panel from submitted nominations, which can be made on behalf of an individual or team. Nominations should include a description of the particular attributes of the nominee(s) and what characteristics, approaches or successes make them stand out.


The Banking Technology Readers’ Choice Awards are also now open and we invite our readers to vote for their favourite vendor product or service of the year, click here to vote. We don’t stop vendors voting for their own products and services, but these votes won’t impact the final results as they are based on the numbers of votes from user institutions.

the Readers’ Choice Awards are open for votes!

The Readers’ Choice award  recognises achievement, dedication and innovation of a vendor and its products/services, as chosen by our users. So make sure your favourite product or service gets the recognition it deserves by casting your all important vote.

And to thank you for your valuable time all vote respondents will be entered into our prize draw, where we are giving away ten annual print subscriptions to Banking Technology magazine worth £495 each! Winners will be chosen at random when voting officially closes and the winners notified early September.
