How does the judging process work?

The FinTech Awards Wales have been designed to be as simple as possible.

  • Applications/nominations opened on February 10th, 2021
  • Following receipt of entries, the Judges will draw up a shortlist of finalists for each award who will then be interviewed between by the panel of judges (which will also possibly include one independent judge representing the award sponsor).
  • The interviews will be the process by which the winner of each category is chosen.
  • Initial entries will be assessed by a small panel of Judges.

The decision of the judges is final regarding all categories for the FinTech Awards Wales.
