The Competition

In the first round of the competition, candidates are asked to submit their idea to be considered by a panel of judges drawn from the Chartered Banker Institute.

  • Apply via the form which will be available when entries open on the 21st of March 2023.
  • Candidates should outline their idea in a proposal of no more than 800 words
  • Submissions must be received by Tuesday 16th May 2023.

Judges from the Institute will review all proposals; the best candidates will then be invited to discuss their idea via Zoom with an Institute judge.

Following this process, eight entrants will be selected to present their idea at the internal semi-finals. Semi-finalists will be invited to present their proposals to a panel of judges. Each semi-finalist will have 8 minutes to present, followed by questions from the judges. Four finalists will then be selected from the two internal semi-finals to present their proposals at the live final in London at the end of the year.

Finalists will receive feedback on their semi-final presentation from our judges, and have the chance to develop their proposals further. The finalists will present their idea before an invited audience of senior bankers, regulators and others, towards the end of the year at Mansion House in London, with the winner chosen by an illustrious panel of judges.
