FinTech Australia’s Annual Finnie Awards is calling for entries, announcing that the awards night will return to Sydney after over six years.
The award, now in its eight year, was first held in Sydney in 2016 and later in 2017 before consecutively being held in Melbourne each year following.
The event will take place on June 6 at Doltone House in Jones Wharf. Over 20 awards will again be on offer this year, including Best Workplace Diversity, Positive Impact, Emerging Fintech Leader Of The Year, Female Fintech Leader Of The Year and Outstanding Fintech Leader Of The Year.
FinTech Australia General Manager Rehan D’Almeida: “The event’s return to Sydney has been a long time coming — and a running request from our members in New South Wales.”
“We’ll be holding the Finnies Gala Dinner ast a time when Sydney is at its best — during the Vivid Festival. Jones Wharf is on the water, overlooking the Sydney Harbour Bridge, creating a truly stunning backdrop for what will be a memorable night.”
Last year, the Finnies received over 300 submissions. Over 500 attended the Gala event held at the Forum Theatre in Melbourne. D’Almeida added: “We expect participation to hit a new high this year, as we continue to celebrate the success and growth of the industry — a theme across all of our events this year including Banking Reverse Pitch, Fintech for Net Zero, CDR Summit and Intersekt.”
“We urge fintechs to start working on their entries now, and really put their best foot forward this year as competition will be fierce.”
Entries for the Finnie Awards close on March 15, 2024. Visit the event website at (www.thefinnies.org.au) for further information on how to submit your entry.
