Emerging Payments Awards 2018 finalists announced


The eleventh Emerging Payments Awards will be back at the Hilton, Park Lane in London on Wednesday 10th October. This year the Awards will be hosted by stand-up Canadian/Irish comedian, Katherine Ryan, best known for co-hosting ‘Your face or Mine’ alongside Jimmy Carr. The Awards will host more than 700 guests, including the industry’s most senior decision-makers from across the globe. With 30% more entries this year and 55% tables already taken, the ceremony is bound to be a sell-out.

The judges were particularly impressed with the variety of submissions from all over the world. 40% were first-time entrants and nearly 70% from outside the Emerging Payments Association membership. Submissions demonstrated examples of high-quality, effective and innovative payment solutions and organisations. The 30% increase in submissions reinforces the relevance of the Awards, which includes new and revised categories to reflect changes in the industry. Popular categories included: Best Financial Payments Programme, Best B2B Payments Programme, Best Collaboration Initiative, Best Back Office Innovation, Best Customer Facing Experience and, of course, Leading Emerging Payments Organisation.

Submissions were judged by an elite panel of 40 international judges, chaired by John Chaplin, Helios Advisors. and finalists for 19 of the 20 categories were announced at the Emerging Payments Association’s Summer Party in London. The final category, for “Emerging Payments Industry Contributor of the Year” will be judged separately, with the winner also announced at the ceremony in October.
