The Judging Panel (JP) will be directed to choose a “Best” entry per category below:
- End User Experience
- Social Impact
- Innovative Agent Solution
- Back-Office Solution (FX Management/ Treasury/ Customer Service)
- RegTech/ Compliance/ KYC/ AML/ CTF
- Social Impact
- Business Service / B2B-B2P-P2B.
- We also have an OPEN category for the out-of-the-box ideas that can’t fit in any other mold.
Categories are subject to change in favor of ease of judging i.e. if there are too many submissions for one category and the organizers decide to split the category in two. The JP can assign an entry to any other category they feel the entry also fits. The JP cab declare a null vote if no entry seems to deserve the designation or can choose two winners if it is difficult to select the “Best”.
The JP can also select a wide range of unique awards per category to shine a spotlight on individual characteristics of special entries and the JP has been instructed to consider the following unique awards:
- Most Creative
- Most Innovative Technology>Most Innovative Product
- Most Innovative Service
- Most Ready for Success
- Most Marketable
- The Leap-Forward Award
- Africa’s Best
- Latam’s Best
- Europe’s Best
- Asia’s Best
- North America’s Best
The judging panel is free to come up with other creative designations for unique awards to highlight some entries that they feel have the merit to glow. Judging will be transparent, open and the detailed minutes of the meetings by the judges will be available publicly.
