Featuring initiatives from innovators large and small — including Worldpay, Clearscore and Azimo, amongst others — the 2016 longlist is available here in full.
Longlisted entries are through to the second round, where they will be considered and scored by our expert panel of judges. The shortlist of category finalists will be released in March.
The ultimate winners will be announced at a glamorous gala dinner on the 13th of April, attended by 700 of the industry’s most influential people and organisations. To learn more about sponsoring the celebration contact Stephen McMaugh here or call +44 (0) 208 0809 164.
