Guidelines 

The e-FX Awards will be decided by a panel of judges, selected and chaired by the editors of FX Markets. The names of the judges will be published after decisions are made.

How to enter:

Entries must answer three questions. Each has a strict word limit:

  • What have been your biggest successes over the past 12 months? (500 words)
  • What differentiates you from other firms in this space? (500 words)
  • How has your business/product/service changed over the past 12 months? (500 words)


Any entry that does not directly answer these three questions will be excluded.

All information provided will be treated as off-the-record – it will not be published, discussed or disclosed outside of the judging process, without permission.

Judging criteria will vary from year to year, as market conditions change – but it's worth noting that the awards are not primarily an attempt to reward market share. Other criteria include strategic clarity, growth, risk management discipline, innovation and adaptability, thought leadership, and a commitment to investing in the business.

Two more important points:

  • The judges want to see evidence that entrants are meeting client needs – this should be provided in the form of three client testimonials, or contact details for three clients (allowing us to obtain a reference).
  • Entries that are able to support their claims with data will be seen as more credible.


Candidates are free to submit additional material in support of their entries – presentations, product brochures, technical specifications, white papers etc.

Entries can be submitted here.

Who can enter:

Each category relates to a product or service. We deliberately do not provide tight eligibility criteria – most of the categories should be self-explanatory, but any parties with queries about eligibility should contact [email protected].

Any firm active in a category is eligible to enter, regardless of size, geographic focus or market share.

The results:

The results will be published on fx-markets.com and will also appear in the next issue of FX Markets, along with commentary and analysis.
