By clicking this link, you can put your organisation into contention for our prestigious Real Estate Capital 2019 awards. But you will need to act fast. The deadline for nominations is midnight, UK time, Monday 25 November.

The good news is we do not want lengthy submissions. What we do want is to know which of our 30 awards you think your organisation ought to be considered for. That can be more than one category. Crucially, we want succinct but convincing evidence why your organisation deserves to win it.

For example, if you are an advisory firm with your eye on our Debt Advisor of the Year in Germany gong, you might want to tell us the volume of debt you have arranged for borrower clients in the German market in 2019, with examples of the most eye-catching transactions you have played a key role in.

If you are a debt fund lender and you think your company deserves to be Europe’s High-Yield Debt Fund Lender of the Year, tell us how much capital you have deployed across how many loans, and give us details of the year’s most interesting deals.

If you think a transaction you have closed this year should be recognised as Financing Deal of the Year: Development, give us details of the deal and why you believe it stands out from all the others closed in 2019.

We do not want to wade our way through epic works of literature that tell the entire history of your company. But while we want succinct submissions, they should contain enough headline detail to catch our attention.

Once the deadline has passed, our editorial team will be sifting through submissions, scouring our archive of stories, speaking to key industry contacts and debating among ourselves who should make the cut. We will be looking out for organisations and deals that stood out from the crowd this year.

Then, in early December, the 30 awards categories will be put out to you, the industry, to vote upon.

We are grateful to all those who have made submissions so far, but we want to hear from the rest of you.
