About the awards

Who is eligible: Financial institutions, technology companies and tech vendors. You may be located anywhere in the world, but your achievements and solutions must serve users in Asia Pacific.

Fees: There are no fees to enter the awards. Winners may pay a fee for use of our awards-related logos and other marketing materials, and to receive our really awesome trophy.

Who wins: Our roster of independent judges will vote for their favorite submission in each category. Their decision is final. Neither DigFin nor AMTD have any role in the judging. Our judges are profiled on the next page.

How to win: Submissions are very simple. You have some text boxes to argue why your firm deserves the award. You may also upload visuals such as a video or slides, as well as provide testimonials from users/clients. Testimonials are very powerful. We are looking for achievements and solutions that you can back up with data or examples.

Number of categories: You may apply for multiple awards. Each requires its own submission. You can also revise your entries after you have submitted them.
