Awards for Excellence 2020 submission guidelines

APRIL 2 UPDATE: Changes to Euromoney Awards for Excellence

Euromoney is making changes to the Awards for Excellence 2020 programme to reflect the impact of Covid-19. See here for full details of amended submission guidelines, deadlines and categories, and see below for amended key dates.

AMENDED guidelines, dates and deadlines

COUNTRY AWARDS [download pdf]

We will continue to award best bank and best investment bank awards in each country, where possible. The criteria remain the same, although we are keen to hear from you about how you are responding as a business to the Covid-19 crisis.

  • SUBMISSION DEADLINE: THURSDAY, MAY 7 (originally April 16)
  • DECISION NOTIFICATIONS: NO LATER THAN JUNE 11
  • AWARDS ANNOUNCED: JULY 15 (via Euromoney.com and social media)

REGIONAL AWARDS [download pdf]

We will continue to nominate award winners across the existing 11 regional categories, where possible.

ADDITIONAL NEW REGIONAL AWARD: In each region this year, we will be giving a new recognition - the “Euromoney Excellence in Leadership” awards. Our editorial team has been hugely impressed by the swift reaction of many banks across the world in responding to the Covid-19 crisis. The Excellence in Leadership awards will recognise these efforts.

We want to hear from you directly about what you have done for your employees, your clients, your own business and your societies and economies. There will be no individual categories for these awards. We anticipate that up to six banks in each region will be recognised in this way.

The submission deadline for this new award is later than for the other regional categories - see the dates below for details. As with other awards please restrict your submissions to no more than four pages of A4 in length. These awards are open to all banks operating within the respective region.

  • SUBMISSION DEADLINE FOR EXISTING CATEGORIES: THURSDAY, MAY 7 (originally April 16)
  • DECISION NOTIFICATIONS FOR EXISTING CATEGORIES: NO LATER THAN JUNE 11
  • SUBMISSION DEADLINE FOR NEW EXCELLENCE IN LEADERSHIP AWARD: THURSDAY, MAY 28
  • DECISION NOTIFICATIONS FOR EXCELLENCE IN LEADERSHIP AWARD: NO LATER THAN JUNE 18
  • AWARDS ANNOUNCED: JULY 15 (via Euromoney.com and social media)

GLOBAL AWARDS

It is too early to assess the long-term impact of the Covid-19 crisis on the global banking industry. For that reason we have decided to postpone decisions for our Global Awards for Excellence categories until a little later in the year.

We want to take time to review which categories remain relevant in the current environment. Given the vital role that banks are playing in the response to Covid-19, we want to allow more time to see and consider the impact of your actions - and, in our investment and corporate banking categories, your ability to keep markets open and provide solutions for your clients.

ADDITIONAL NEW GLOBAL AWARD: We will also be recognising a select group of banks in our new Global Excellence in Leadership awards, similar to the new regional awards above.

We will update you on the new timetable for our Global Awards in due course, but we anticipate asking for submissions to come in around the middle of July, decisions by the middle of August and publication in September.
