The categories and descriptions for 2022 have been announced and online voting is open.

Here’s the timeline and details regarding our awards process and how you can be in with a chance of winning one of our coveted ‘B’ statues: 

  • online voting closes on 3rd June. We list the categories, and users fill in the form with which company or individual they think should make the list. Employees may vote for themselves or their own firm. Obvious spam and fake entries will be filtered. One form per email address can be submitted
  • for 2022, we are asking judges to apply to be a part of one of our two panels. The details of these panels will be announced in March via B&C. There are two groups: one consisting of brokers and one of lenders, to judge the respective categories fairly
  • once online voting has closed, we create a longlist of up to 15 firms in each category, based on the number of online votes submitted. Our judging panel selects up to eight in each, and the collation of these results makes up the official shortlist. This is announced in the first week of June. Some categories have four nominees, and some have more, depending on popularity and how closely contested the voting is
  • shortlisted nominees will have three weeks to compile the supporting documentation required to take their nomination forward. This usually consists of two references, but each nominee will be contacted with specific guidance. There are never any costs involved for you to pursue the award or, indeed, if you go on to win
  • supporting documentation has a strict word limit and needs to be completed in template form, to level the playing field for firms of all sizes and structures
  • in July, our judging panels and chairpeople — who are chosen by the judges — will meet to decide on the winners. B&C/Medianett Publishing has no voting power, but we are present during the judging process
  • we get on with engraving the winners’ names and finalising plans for the event itself.

What makes a winning entry?

Our judges represent a good cross section of the specialist finance market, and we rely on their knowledge and experience during the process to reach an outcome that is fair and correct.

References supplied should go into sufficient detail as to why your firm should win that specific accolade, paying close attention to the descriptions we have published and ticking those ‘boxes’. Client/partner/borrower experience counts, and we want to hear why you are different from your peers and the other nominees in the category.

Consider showcasing your best deals, how you’ve gone above and beyond expectations, the calibre of your team, how you’ve grown and evolved over the past 12 months and how you contribute to the wider industry’s success. In such a competitive space, knowing how to convincingly present your USP is of the utmost importance. 

Once again, we have a uniform length of submission which is required, and no additional supporting material may be included, to create as level a playing field as possible.


Tables, individual seats, and sponsorship opportunities are available to reserve now and are limited. In you’d like to join us on 15th September, please contact Caron Schreuder on [email protected] or 0790 342 2325 as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
