Both of these awards will open for submissions week commencing 27th March and are open to both lender and broker firms. There is no voting involved for either award, they are solely submission based, with all the entries being reviewed by a judging panel. The shortlists and the winners of both awards will be announced at our ceremony in June.

What next for the Finalists?

All the finalists across both the broker and lender categories will now be invited to provide a more detailed submission on why they believe they should win the award they are shortlisted for. Specific guidance for the submissions will be issued to the finalists following the announcement. The deadline for submissions to be received is Friday 14th April.

All finalist submissions will be judged by panels made up of representatives from the Legal & General Mortgage Club alongside industry experts and peers. We will invite representatives from Lender firms to judge the broker awards, and vice-versa. The judging will take place on Thursday 4th May.

Winners Announcement

The winners will be announced live at our 2023 awards ceremony, which is scheduled to take place on Friday 9th June at The Guildhall, London.
