The Banking Technology Judged Awards

Now in their 17th year, the Banking Technology Judged Awards have become established as the premier event recognising excellence and the use of IT in banking and financial services.

The winners in each category are chosen by a high-level panel from across the industry that have a justifiable reputation for their independence and rigour. Last year the judges were highly impressed by the breadth and quality of the entries, which reflect the reputation that the awards have built up over the years.

The Judged Awards are open to banks and financial institutions worldwide. PR agencies and vendors may also put an entry in on behalf of a bank or financial institution but must have prior approval from them.
