No, the awards are open to banks across the globe. In 2019 we had entries from some 70 countries.
Every month before the awards officially open for entries, Efma selects a ‘Submission of the Month’. The winner benefits from immediate shortlisting in the top 9 of its category; a communication campaign via the Efma website, its e-newsletter, Innovation Portal and via social media.
It is free and fast. Please go to www.efma.com/account in order to create your account.
Full access is reserved for Efma members. To find out more about the terms and conditions of Efma membership, please contact Lubomir Olach at firstname.lastname@example.org

Impact: the innovation’s capacity to generate a superior, long-term competitive edge and a significant return on investment. Universality: the innovation’s adaptability across different markets and countries.
After the submission deadline, an Efma Committee will select the nominees in each category.
