THE JUDGES

■ Expertise and Industry Knowledge:

Our judges are chosen for their expertise and deep knowledge of the fintech industry. They understand the nuances of financial technology, trends, and innovations. Their insights can help ensure that the awards are given to deserving candidates who have made significant contributions to the field.

■ Credibility and Trust:

Having reputable judges lends credibility to the awards process. It helps build trust among participants, sponsors, and the broader industry. When well-respected professionals in the fintech sector are involved in the judging process, it adds a level of authenticity to the awards.

■ Quality Assurance:

Judges play a crucial role in maintaining the quality of the awards. They evaluate submissions based on specific criteria and ensure that only the most deserving candidates receive recognition.

■ Highlighting Innovation:

Fintech is a rapidly evolving industry with constant innovations. Our judges are best placed to identify and recognize groundbreaking solutions, technologies, or business models. Their role is pivotal in highlighting and rewarding innovation, encouraging companies to push the boundaries of what is possible in financial technology.

■ Networking and Collaboration:

Being a judge at a fintech awards show provides an opportunity to connect with other industry leaders, experts, and innovators. This networking can lead to potential collaborations, partnerships, and the exchange of ideas. It contributes to the growth and development of the fintech ecosystem.

THE FINALISTS

Entry into each category is free an open to all. FF Awards runs a quality control check before the first round of voting. The audience at FF News will then score each entry out of ten, with the highest five average scores reaching the Finals. Each category has a maximum of five finalists.

As such, the level of our finalists and the entries they put together is incredibly high. All finalists are invited to the event.

10 | FF Awards Media Pack

The FF Awards are the absolute undisputable BEST Awards program and show in Financial Services.

TLDR...

Our Sponsors, are E XCLUSIVELY selected!

We are however, making a real point of a blanket ban on Sponsors also entering the Awards.

The types of organisations that we are looking to sponsor the FF Awards in 2024 are those which from a commercial perspective are looking to work with everyone in the room.

... every Judge. ... every Finalist. ... every Guest.

It is also important to us, that we do no have organisations sponsoring the event who are directly competing with each other.

With these parameters in place, we are looking for players within infrastructure of financial services, as opposed to product focused.

THE EVENT

One of the goals of the FF Awards show is to become a talking point both before and after the actual event itself.

In terms of quality of the show and “Wow” factor, we make it one of the most star studded events, with big household names advertised including Katherine Ryan , Ed Gamble , Liberty X , Toploader & Alex Brooker ; together with industry influencers such as Jim Marous , Chris Skinner , Brett King and Frank Abagnale Jr .

We now an expectation now of surprise, unadvertised Guest (s) including the likes of Brian Blessed , John Bercow , Sue Perkin s and Max Fosh . This not only creates speculation before the event, but also gives huge FOMO to have an impact beyond just those in attendance.

Max’s video has over 2 million Views!
