A big THANK YOU to all those who took time and lots of energy to make their Nominations for the 2024 Technical Awards. We have turned the Nominations (with exception of the Best House Note Nominations) over to our Judging Committee. The total score from our judges will tell us our Finalists, which we will announce first of March. These categories being judged are:

  1. Best New Banknote Feature, Product or Process
  2. Best New Limited Circulation/Commemorative Banknote
  3. Best New Cash Cycle Innovation

The Award for the Best House Note will go straight to our Central Bank members + the

delegates for voting during the Banknote Conference. We received eight (8) excellent nominations for Best House Note!!

Our FINALISTS (including the nominations for Best House Note) will be presented at the Banknote Conference on Tuesday, May 14 during IACA’s Award presentation. Then, the WINNERS for all 4 categories will be announced Wednesday night, May 15th at the Awards Dinner.
