Who can submit a nomination?
Nominations are open to our Jersey based Member firms and their employees only. If you are a Jersey Finance Member firm, you can nominate via the nomination entry form in each category.
Member firms can nominate themselves and their employees. It is also possible to nominate any other Jersey Finance Member firm. If nominating another Member firm, you should provide responses and details in relation to that firm.
We understand that firms often have a cross-border presence; where an entry relates to sustainable finance business undertaken in several jurisdictions, the information on the nomination form should focus on Jersey-specific aspects wherever possible.
How are the Awards judged?
Judging is by an independent panel of experts, nominated by Jersey Finance Limited. Details of the panel can be found above and further terms and conditions regarding the judging process can be found here.
Is there a word limit on nominations and do I have to pay to nominate?
Yes, a word limit is specified for relevant sections of the different nomination forms, and it is free for all Jersey Finance Members to nominate.
Which category should I enter my nomination for?
For guidance on the individual categories, please see the FAQs relevant to each nomination form. Member firms can be nominated for more than one category. The judging panel reserves the right to give an award for a different category to the one specified on the nomination form. For further queries, please contact us.
Can I submit nominations for more than one category?
Member Firms can submit multiple nominations across all of the categories (and sub-categories) until Wednesday 20 July.
When will I find out if I have won and will you announce if firms have been shortlisted?
There is no shortlisting process for any of the awards, and the judging process will only select the winning Member firm. Winners will be announced at the Awards ceremony, taking place in Jersey on 13 October 2022.
Do I need to pay for a table or ticket at the Awards Ceremony?
The Awards Ceremony will be an informal event in theatre style and will begin with a networking drinks reception. There will be limited seats available and these will be allocated to member firms that have submitted a nomination or been nominated. There is no charge for attendance. The Events Team will send out email communications regarding attendance at the event in early September.
