REC Awards 2017: Don’t forget to have your say

Voting for this year’s awards will open in early December, so now is the time to tell us your achievements.

Real Estate Capital’s editorial team is busy compiling shortlists for our fourth annual awards, and we want to hear from you.

The awards are the most prestigious and comprehensive in the European real estate finance industry and are totally independent. There is no sponsorship, no panel of judges – the winners are voted for entirely by the industry, truly reflecting the esteem in which they are held by their peers.

In total, 20 categories are up for grabs, each covering Europe, aside from six country- and region-specific awards.

Voting will open in early December. But before that can happen, shortlists must be compiled. The process through which we determine our nominees is rigorous and fair. It involves poring over research, canvassing opinion from senior figures within the industry, and in-depth discussions within the editorial team, after which impartial shortlists are constructed.

To inform our decision-making, we invite you to submit nomination suggestions via a dedicated form, which can be found by clicking here. Submissions are not a prerequisite, nor do they guarantee inclusion.

They do, however, give you the opportunity to make the case for your nominations. Use the form to tell us in which category or categories you believe your nominated firm should be included, and why. The more evidence, the better.

Suggestions will be accepted until the close of business on Tuesday 21 November, after which the form will be closed and nominations will be determined.

Each category will feature four shortlisted candidates, with a fifth, blank option for firms and individuals not nominated. Real Estate Capital will be back in touch to tell you where to register your votes. The winners will be announced next March.

So, now is the time to have your say and argue why your organisation is deserving of a prestigious Real Estate Capital award! Please click on our dedicated form to submit your nomination proposals.
