Award Process and Judging Panel

All entries delivered by the deadline are presented to members of the Judging Panel. The Panel is comprised of a group acknowledged as leading independent experts from various money transfer and payments related professions.

The Panel then discusses and evaluates the list of finalists, from which it chooses a winner in each Award category. The IPR Awards feature three classes of the leading organisations in each Award category: commended, finalist and winner.
