Frequently Asked Questions

Share on LinkedInShare on TwittereCard

HOW DO I ENTER?

 

Entries must be submitted online. Full details of how to submit your entry can be found on the enter page.


WHY SHOULD WE ENTER?

 

Winning a Car Finance Award is a symbol of achievement, a veritable endorsement of success enhancing your credibility and standing in the eyes of your peers and your customers, not to mention the exceptional marketing and PR opportunities your win guarantees you.


WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO ENTER?

 

The awards are open to any individual or company within the credit industry. If you see you a category you feel most suited to then please enter. Firms from any country in the world are free to enter. For full details on whether your organisation is suitable for a category, look into the category descriptions on awards you wish to enter.


HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO COMPLETE AN ENTRY FORM?

 

Please allow sufficient time to complete your entry before the closing date. It should not take longer than a couple of hours to complete the form, however we would recommend that to ensure your entry is as strong as possible, the more time spent on preparation the better. You can save your entry and come back and update it online, so you do not need to submit it until you are happy with it. This year you can also email the entry to yourself or colleagues that may wish to add to the entry.


WHAT SUPPORTING MATERIAL CAN I SUBMIT?

 

For every category you can supply up to two A4 pages of supporting documentation.

Please ensure you keep to these guidelines as anything else will be disregarded by the judges. Judges particularly like to see third party validation of any claims made within the entry.


WHAT CRITERIA DO WE NEED TO MEET?

 

There are separate criteria for each of the categories and this appears on the category pages. The underlying values associated with all the categories are business ethics, innovation and success.


ARE ENTRY FORMS AND THE INFORMATION PROVIDED KEPT CONFIDENTIAL?

 

All materials will remain confidential to the judges who are all under NDA. Winning case studies may be used in post-event materials to promote best practice but permission will be sought from entrants before publishing.


CAN WE SUBMIT MULTIPLE ENTRIES?

 

Multiple entries may be submitted. You may enter as many different categories as you are eligible for and there is no limit on the number of entries you may submit per category.


WHEN DO ENTRIES OPEN?

 

Entries for the 2019 Car Finance Awards are now open.


IS THERE AN ENTRY FEE?

 

Entries usually cost £200 but are free of charge up until the 12 April 2019. The final entry deadline is 18 April 2019.


CAN WE GET FEEDBACK IF WE ARE UNSUCCESSFUL?

 

The judges’ decisions are final and no correspondence will be entered into after the judging. Due to the number of entries and the confidential process we are unfortunately unable to give feedback on to why an entry has not been included on the shortlist or didn’t win.


WHEN DO I RECEIVE A JOINING PACK AND E-TICKET?

 

All joining packs and e-tickets will be sent 2 weeks, 1 week and 24 hours prior to the event.


HOW TO ASSIGN CONTACTS AND WHEN?
