Criteria & Guidelines

Which awards are available for entry?

You have the opportunity to put forward up to 5 deals/transactions that have taken place over the past 12 months. Each deal/transaction nomination will be analysed by our research team and measured against a strict set of criteria. A shortlist of finalists will be drawn up from which the eventual winners will be selected.

Shortlist information: Additional information can be submitted for a very limited time after the shortlist has been announced. The information may be taken into consideration in advance of the final notification to the 2017 winners. Materials that will be considered include, but not restricted to, press releases relating to deal innovation, deal significance and game-changing deals.


Who can vote?

Any firm or business/corporation can submit an entry. Non-businesses (clients) must have had direct involvement with the firm/business/organisation/individual that they wish to vote for.

Our primary focus will look at the deals that have taken place over the past 12 months.


What should I include in my submission?

We have provided space for you to submit a 500 word statement to accompany the deal(s)/transactions(s) that can be put forward. Given the word count we encourage participants to be as specific as possible when highlighting expertise and work. The statement must provide tangible examples to support the entry. Good entries tend to avoid too many superlatives and focus on measurable results – unless using direct client quotes. In short, facts and figures are always welcome as they can be easily measured.

All nominations must be entered via our online voting system. We cannot accept entries by post or any other method.


What happens if I win?

Each category winner will be listed in the special edition Finance Monthly Deal Maker of the Year Awards publication 2017. The special awards edition will be published in both print and digital formats and distributed to our entire readership.


Is there a cost?

There is no cost to enter the Finance Monthly Deal Maker of the Year Awards 2017.
