When does voting commence?
Voting opens on 24th June 2019
and closes on 15th September 2019
. Between the 24th June
and the 1st September
consumers can vote for any firm they choose. On 2nd September
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 15th September
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 in each product category that meets the threshold for each category (100 votes during the voting period) 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 1/1/2015.
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 3rd October 2019.
