How to apply or nominate for an award

The application/nomination process is quick and easy, with a simple online form to complete.

Successful applicants will be invited to an interview with an expert panel of industry judges and the winners and highly commended will be announced at the awards evening.

Applications have now closed for the Finance Awards North West.

Step 1. Short online application/nomination form

Application deadline: Friday 21st January 2022

An initial nomination/application form for the awards is completed. The initial application consists of a short overview about the nominee/applicant and why they deserve to win the award.

Step 2. Meeting with Judges

Judging meetings: Monday 7th - Friday 18th March 2022

If successful, applicants/nominees are invited by a member of the awards partners to join them for the second stage of the application process.

The interview is judged independently by the four executive partner businesses and a leading industry professional guest judge. Each judge will provide an individual score with the highest average score winning the award.

The interview will take no more than an hour and successful applicants/nominees will receive a set of questions before the judging day. Applicants/nominees will be contacted to arrange the judging day.

Successful applicants and nominees will be interviewed by the four executive partners and leading industry guest judges.
