Based Only on merit

The North West Finance Awards are all about recognising excellence in accounting and financial roles, based on merit alone.  We’re totally independent of any commercial interest.  When you step up as an Awards winner, it’s for achievement, pure and simple.

Backed by all professional bodies

The Awards are supported by all the leading professional associations. They all sit on our highly experienced judging panel, alongside the very cream of professional and business talent.  They’re rigorous, fair and honest.

Recognising excellence at all levels

Only the North West Finance Awards truly recognise excellence across all levels of business and professional life.  We really do stand up for the unsung heroes in accounting and financial roles.


The process

Entry is by nomination. You can nominate yourself or any colleagues, your team, clients, suppliers, business associates, or anyone you think is a worthy unsung hero in business in the North West.  Make as many nominations as you want – it’s FREE
(in case we didn’t mention that).

The Judges

You’ll need to satisfy a very eminent panel, if you want to be a winner at the Awards.
