The judging and voting process

The deadline to enter is 5pm on Monday 3rd June 2024, after which an independent panel of distinguished industry experts, chosen for their experience and insight, will review all submissions to create a shortlist of brokerages and individuals. The judging process is equally weighted, with the shortlist drawn on merit. The panel will be revealed shortly before judging commences. All NACFB board directors have recused themselves from entering this year’s awards.

Once the judges have made their selections, the shortlist will be put before Patron lenders for voting with the results from both cohorts combined to establish the eventual winners and highly commended entries. 

Commenting on the entry process, NACFB managing director, Norman Chambers said: “Whether you are a sole trader broker, a regional player, or a national brokerage, the NACFB Commercial Broker Awards are the ideal way to demonstrate that you have a track record of success alongside the skills and expertise to grow in the coming months and years.”

The winners will be revealed and presented with their award trophies at an in-person ceremony on Friday 13th September at Lancashire Cricket Club, Manchester.
