*Please note that the Press Spokesperson of the year and the Outstanding Contribution Award categories are not open to public nominations. The shortlist and judging is carried out by the editorial and publishing teams at AE3 Media.

The shortlists will be drawn up in each category based on the number and spread of nominations. Those nominees who make the shortlist in each category are then asked to submit a supporting testimonial based on the following criteria:

  • Achievements the individual has delivered in the past 12 months
  • Strengths that deliver value to their role and the marketplace they serve
  • Any positive contributions made to the wider intermediary market beyond the contributions to their business performance

Following this, an industry panel will assess the testimonials and decide the winners, who will be revealed at the awards ceremony in May.
