Entry Terms & Conditions


The awards are open to all individuals and global organisations including private sector, social enterprise, charity, public sector.

Application process

All entrants should complete the online application form on the website or download an application form from the website that can then be completed offline. Unfortunately we cannot accept handwritten forms.

For all categories except the Innovative idea, entrants must all submit three years of annual reports and financial statements as part of their application. If your business is less than three years old, please provide the relevant document since its creation. For the Innovative idea category, entrants may be asked to submit relevant supporting documentation. 

Entrants may enter multiple categories (Large business and Communicating integrated thinking categories for example) but the projects or initiatives entered must be different for each category. If you are unclear about which category to enter, please contact Aude Bezler. If the assessment team believe it is more appropriate to include your application in a different category, they will contact you to discuss its proposed reallocation.


The deadline for submission of application for the 2017 Finance for the Future Awards was midnight BST on Wednesday 31 May 2017

Word count

So that we can assess all applications equally, we will not accept applications which exceed the word count. The word count is specified next to each question.

Re-entry for entrants from previous years

Entrants from previous years are welcome to re-enter the awards, but please note that your completed entry form must demonstrate significant progress and change to previous entries.

Accuracy of information

By submitting your form you are confirming that the information it contains is correct. If we find that the information is inaccurate, we will reject the application.

Case studies and publicity

By submitting an application you are agreeing to allow the details in your entry to be shared with our assessors and judges. You also agree that we will use this information for publicity purposes including the production of case studies of which you will have prior approval. The production of any publicity will be solely at the discretion of the organisers.


Decisions made by both assessors and judges are final. No correspondence or debate will be entered into.


The organisers accept no responsibility for any costs associated with the awards (this includes submission of entries and attendance at the awards ceremony etc) and will accept no liability for any loss, injury or disappointment.
