Associations, brokers, insurers, law firms, loss adjusters, modelling firms, reinsurers and technology firms with operations based in Asia can enter the awards.

To submit your entry, please fill out the form under ‘Applications’ on the award homepage above. We will then send you an entry form by email. Please provide as much information as possible. The awards are free to enter.

Your firm can enter for as many awards as you like, but please ensure that each entry addresses the information requirements for each category.

We want to hear about your business successes, investment in talent, innovation, digital capabilities, client support, CSR and about going above and beyond the call of duty.
