What are The Card & Payments Awards and what do they aim to achieve?

Established in 2006, The Card & Payments Awards offer organisations – credit, debit, prepaid and charge card issuers, their co-branded affinity or retail card partners, merchant acquirers, payment processors, other payments companies and retailers  – the unique opportunity to showcase their latest card and payments related initiatives and programmes to the industry. The awards will recognise, highlight and celebrate the contribution and success of those entries which demonstrate strong product development, best practice, innovation and customer service excellence.

Which organisations can enter the awards?

The awards are open in selected categories to credit, debit, prepaid and charge card issuers, and also their retail, affinity and other brand partners, merchant acquirers, payment processors and other companies offering payments services.  Retailers can enter categories where they have a payments initiative that qualifies. Please read the full eligibility and details of how to enter on this site. Entries can be submitted only by the organisation that has the direct interface with the end ‘payer’ or the merchant offering the service. Entries may be prepared by suppliers and other members of the value chain but the Award nomination needs to be in the name of the end consumer or B2B brand and needs to be authorised by that brand.

How does my organisation make an entry?

All the information you need is on the How to Enter section of the website.
