When does voting commence?
Voting opens on the 6th November 2017 and closes on the 11th February 2018. On the 15th January we’ll create a list of finalists in each category (based on the voting to date), and consumers will continue to vote for these finalists until voting closes on the 11th February.
How are winners decided?
Our awards are customer driven so the only people that influence who wins are UK consumers. In general, the highest-rated firm that meets the minimum threshold for each category will win one of our product specific awards.
All firms are also eligible for our top level awards. Note: The "Best Newcomer” award will only be awarded to firms that launched on or after 1/1/2014.
What is the voting process?
Customers leave a review for a product on the Smart Money People site. That's it! From landing on the page, to submitting their vote, it should take two minutes or less.
How much does it cost to take part?
There is no cost to take part. Our mission is to help consumers find the best products on the market, and these awards are a way in which we can achieve this.
When are the winners announced?
Winners will be announced at our awards event
which will be held in London on the 1st March.
