IS THERE A COST TO ENTER THE AWARDS?

No, entering the awards is completely free.

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT AWARDS I CAN ENTER?

The FDs’ Excellence Awards are split into two sections – those celebrating exceptional Finance Directors and those recognising lenders and advisers that serve them.
The Finance Director awards are open to nominations, from which the finalists will be decided.
The Service Provider finalists are chosen based on results from our FDs’ Satisfaction Survey, which brings together the opinions of over 1,800 Finance Directors.

CAN I ENTER MULTIPLE CATEGORIES FOR THE FINANCE DIRECTOR AWARDS?

Yes. If you are entering multiple categories please read the relevant entry criteria for each, ensuring that you have tailored the entry specifically to each category.

WHAT IS THE JUDGING PROCESS?

All nominations that we receive online, along with the results of our FDs’ Satisfaction Survey, will be assessed by our Real Business editorial team at the end of March, when the finalists will be announced. The judges will then decide on the winners who will be announced during a three-course lunch at the FD Surgery conference. Please note we do not reveal the winners beforehand.
