5 A diversity of awards

Selection and judging process

Our categories highlight the achievements of companies and individuals that contribute to the transformation and development of Africa’s financial sector. They focus on areas important to the finance community and their stakeholders. We review our categories every year to ensure the Awards remain relevant and take into account the changing realities on the ground.

Following a call for entries our advisory committee shortlists nominees for each category from the pool of submissions. The committee is made up of our editorial board and experts with an in-depth knowledge of the African banking and finance sector. Our independent expert judging panel with extensive expertise across the African regions will then select the winners based on a number of specific criteria from the shortlist. The winners will be announced at the Awards ceremony. To find out more about the judges and the selection process please visit :
