Euromoney Deals of the Year 2012 submission guidelines
Euromoney is pleased to announce the format of its deals of the year 2012 feature, which will be published in the February 2013 issue of the magazine.
As usual, we are looking for the deals that defined the market during a challenging yet broadly positive year for the capital markets. We will recognise the deals that broke records, that reopened markets, that innovated, or that succeeded despite market conditions. Once again, we’re not just looking for the deals that captured the headlines – this is an opportunity to show us smaller, more innovative deals that maybe did not get the attention they deserved at issue as well.
We do not need long submissions from you. One or two pages of A4 will suffice. The aim of the submissions is to give us the key information about the deal and why it should be recognised. If we need more information after the submission, then we will ask for it.
Secondly, we urge you not to submit too many deals for each section (as below). It’s very unlikely that your bank will win every award available in each category, and as we always say, if you can’t decide which your best deals were on your own desk, then what chance do we have? So please choose judiciously which deals you pitch for.
In addition, if we do choose one or more of your deals then we will be asking to speak to an official from the client involved for the write-up that appears in the magazine. Time will be short once we have made our decisions so it’s best to have this in mind from the outset in terms of arranging access.
The submissions should be sent to the following journalists, who will be overseeing each section. We have included guidance as to how many deals will appear in each section, although we reserve the right to change this at any time.
Remember, for each category we will consider all types of client-related transactions, across asset classes. We make no pre-judgments about how many, if any, deals will come from DCM, ECM, M&A etc.

Once again, the deadline for submissions is DECEMBER 12, 2012. We will contact you in the first or second week of January if one or more of your deals are being considered for an award. Unfortunately, given the number of submissions we receive we cannot undertake to give feedback on those submissions that do not make the cut.
