The shortlist for the refreshed and redesigned 18th Credit Awards has been revealed.
The ceremony, the most established and largest annual scheme which honours all high achievers within the credit industry, will take place at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London, on Thursday 11 May.
A panel of judges, today, face the challenge of reviewing the shortlist and picking out the winners for each category. See the shortlist here.
Following on from 2016’s brand refresh, the flagship awards scheme run by Credit Strategy magazine has been completely redesigned for this year.
In addition to being completely revamped to fully reflect Credit Strategy’s widening audience, the 20 awards in this year’s scheme have been grouped into five brand new ‘supercategories’.
These include: Conduct & Culture, Lending, Credit, Collections and Technology. Within these brackets, new awards such as Fair Lender, Risk Leadership and Gamechanger have joined the scheme alongside returning accolades like Best Company to Work For and Customer Service Champion.
During the awards, and included in a magazine write-up after the event, Credit Strategy will announce the reasons behind each winner’s achievement.
Credit Strategy’s consulting editor Fred Crawley, who undertook the Credit Awards redesign, said: “It may sound unusual for us to be shouting about the fact we’ve got fewer award categories this year than in 2016 – 20 compared with 28 in 2016 - but I think that’s a good thing. Not only does it make for a tighter and more exciting ceremony, but it means there’s even more value in winning one of our awards.
“Nevertheless, the categories have been designed to allow the full range of businesses we engage with to enter, and we have considerably simplified the entry process to level the playing field and allow firms of all sizes to compete. Whether you’re a pioneering startup, a high-street giant or a veteran specialist business, there’s a category in the Credit Awards for you.”
The awards have a range of sponsors including Lowell, Marston Holdings and Hoist Finance.
